Boss Audio Systems 1968 Mercedes-Benz 280SL

Chris caught the debut appearance of Mercedes-Benz 280SL. It's gorgeous, and that's before we even get to the audio stuff. A Boss Audio bigwig produced this car from his personal collection -- it is actually a car that started out its life as a convertible, not a Pagoda. size="2">Hrach Baghoumian, mods include Axis 5-spoke 20" wheels, a cut-down windshield, top removal, headrest fairing (hard tonneau which houses pair of 13" monitors). The side glass is fixed, primarily to accommodate speakers and door solenoids, but one might have been able to make them retract without all the ICE wiring. The drivetrain is the stock 2.8L inline 6, but they might swap it out for a HEMI or an AMG -- probably the latter (we tend to agree). Audio equipment includes Boss' monitors and speakers. More photos after the jump.

Do you have the provenance to prove it was indeed a convertible and not a religious pagoda? Why not get me the vin off of the inside of the fuel tank just to make sure. While you are in the tank light it up and walk away. Thanks.

An abomination. A genital wart on the cock of society. No, wait - that's Bob Saget.

And this is why Pimp my Ride and Unique Whips and all the other "custom" shows need to be erased from the planet.

I have a solution for both the car [in it's current state] and the "craftsman" who made it.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
