W100 or 108 - My favorite Benz - ever

1964/1981 - Mercedes-Benz W100 (or maybe it was a W108 / W109) in Black. I love the four round front headlights stacked vertically in pairs.

I remember seeing this Benz in a Stephen King movie called "Needful Things" from the mid-90's. Max von Sydow stepped out of that car and, for some reason, it was so BAD looking.

I hope to own one someday. I'm sure no one gives a rat's hinder about my opinion but I had to get it off my chest.

Which car did Max von Sydow drive? was it a 600? And doesn't it vanish into thin air when he drives off at the end.

Smile Yes, that's it!

Yes, Max drove off into the night and it disappeared. That's the MB I'm speaking of. Apparently, it is the W108/109. Great classic!

dbtk, it is the one in your avatar.

dbtk, I think it's the one in your avatar. Anyway, it isn't the headlights config that I like so much but the grille. Just like the one in your avatar. I'm kind of an ignoramus when it comes to classic MB's but I'll tell you I will own one of those golden oldies one day.
