A forum friend got into an accident with his 1997 S600 Coupe, and it wiped out the four corners of the car. Then, he sold out the interior to another forum member.
What was left, I have received. Basically, it's a functioning M120 V12 engine, with a 5-speed automatic transmission, drivetrain, chassis, but not much else.
I have restored a w140 otherwise destined for the crusher, chronicled within this Forum, and that was fun. But this is a bit different. I have too little left to bring it back to what it was. But I am looking for ideas as to what may be made of this.
WHAT I AM ASKING FOR AND LOOKING FROM MY BROTHERS ON THE FORUM IS YOUR COLLECTIVE INPUT ON WHAT TO MAKE OF THIS OPPORTUNITY.
This is the same motor as in the Pagani and other supercars. What ideas might bubble up if we open up to the Forum what may come??
I'm willing to entertain any valid idea. THINK!!
