Karl is so awesome that whenever he walks into a garage, any broken-down W100s found therein spontaneously reassemble themselves for fear of finding out what's good for them the hard way.

There was a 6.9 chopped into a pick-up. I can't find the pics I saved but it is out there.

Don't like. I'm not huge on originality or period perfection, but this thing just doesn't do much for me.

What's the asking price?

I'd be more interested in the little white guy in front of the pick-up!

I'm just fascinated with the thought process applied when doing such a project. How is it that 1 or 2 days into the build no one goes, "You know what, I don't think its such a great idea after all".

Anyway, this is the car hobby....we must have our variety, otherwise it would get too boring.
