Car-nage in Lebanon

Has anyone noticed how many innocent old Mercedes have been destroyed or fatally damaged during this conflict? It is harrowing to watch countless 123, 124, 116 and 126 mangled, burned and incapacitated every time some new footage is aired on TV.Just because they are in the ME and maybe a little dustier and higher mileage than their European or American cousins doesn't make them any less worthy.Who cares if they don't have full main-dealer service history? And while these outrages continue, supposedly caring communities such as M.SHOP, BW and P3 sit back and do nothing.Even the higher authorities in Sindelfingen seem powerless to intervene.Surely we should make our outrage known and galvanise some automaniterian relief effort to ease the needless destruction and suffering.
After all, the human beings caught in this conflict are mere flesh and blood and only have themselves to blame.They can reproduce and in a few years their numbers will be even greater than when this violence started.The Benzes on the other hand are blameless and irreplaceable.We should demand action NOW!

Vehicles of Destruction

In an MSNBC report filed a few days ago, during the brief pause in Israeli air raids, Hesbollah operatives were spotted riding in their vehicles, while assessing the damage in bombed-out areas.
Since those vehicles are used to carry munitions and personnel, they're a fair target.
On the plus side, demands for new replacement vehicles will increase, which will benefit not just DC, but GM as well.

Mi$ter Right.

^^^^^

You may have something there-I don't think I have seen one 'Jook' damaged since the squabbling started.OTH, Volvo is owned by Ford and Ol' Henry wasn't a great fan of the Red Sea pedestrians was he ?

When this all started, I saw a little clip on CNN of people evacuating. There was a line of 7 or 8 124's and 126's in a row. I thought it was strange to see that many Benzes in a row. Either they were all evacuating from a used car lot, or just an amazing coincidence.

Nope, did you read what Silver Arrow said, the w126 was driven by a teacher. A regular dude like me minding his fking business maybe thinking about how he is going to a put a presentation together or mentor a student, now he is fighting for his life. What about his family, is he not human? fuk you baby boo

It is really just a choice of necessity. A fertilizer based car bomb, which is the weapon of choice in the Middle East, is very heavy, with about 2,000 lbs of Ammonia Nitrate required to take down your average building. The only car that can pull that off is a Merc diesel.

Prof, I think he was referring to the refugee line-up.

Mercedes is the most owned car in Lebanon, from the 1930 to the 2007 models. You can see the old W123 and the SLR or Maybach passing together.

SL SILVER ARROW WITH PANORAMIC HARDTOP, XENON, AMG FULL KIT, PARKTONIC SENSORS ... EVERY AVAILABLE OPTION!!!
