Post What kind of wheels were these? '89 560SEC "Roadhouse"

Patrick Swayze had them, on his car. He was a man of commensurate taste.. his #1 car was his '89 560SEC....



The front NY license plate is now gone, with the Mercedes Benz windshield sticker, a minute later.






Final moments of the car, 560SEC, famous scene:

Oh, good cinema....about time *sigh*

I say Swayze kept the 560SEC and threw in a US spec 500SEC in the fire.

They used a "Stunt Double" SEC.

I have to admit, that was a cool stunt in spite of the wasted 126...
Looked damn cool.

they swapped from a Gen 2 to a Gen 1 SEC for the explosion. my favorite part is the shooting scenes with the shooter on the right from 1:22 on and his pump-leg-shotgun gesture!

Yes they are Lorinsers

Those look very much like the ones I have on my SEC, but mine do not have the Lorinser signature on them.
