Man all you can do is laugh. I saw some lame with a 91 500SL that suddenly became an SL65 AMG.
It's really futile because the average guy won't know what AMG or anything is, but the people who do recognize such branding will know right away they are as fake as the tits on socialite.
People do it all the time with MB 107's too - I would bet half of the "560SLs" you see are some junkyard rebuild 380SL.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
