Here it is.

I already have it and have had it for over a dozen years.

A few days ago near San Francisco we powdercoated the AMG Headers, painted them black, and ran a custom dual exhaust with 2 small standard cats, down to a 2 in/2 out Remus exhaust I had them install in January.





Looking underneath:



Up in the air on the lift:





All finished: Detailed too.



Well, I needed a bumper sticker to go with the Beverly Hills Ltd Mercedes Benz license plate frame on the car.

So I went with this one!!!



Ready to hit the road at last!!!

Me like. That was back when you could tell a Mercedes was coming a half mile away.

I still remember when my dad brought home a used 1961 220S, way back in 1975. Dark brown exterior, with a caramel MB Tex interior. Big tail fins and the speedometer had a "rising thermometer" style readout instead of a conventional dial and needle. I wish he'd kept that car. He drove it for 3 years and sold it to a collector for more than he paid when he bought it.

Amen.

I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.
