More like vindictive, and to be honest, I can't even see his point... Kent is bad because he doesn't love vintage MB's as much as Pierre does? Really? What was Pierre thinking when he made a video that made himself look rather small and petty. Was there a guy off camera holding a gun to his head? Was Pierre reading from "Q" cards and speaking against his will like a hostage being held by terrorists and being told to smear Kent's name?

One thing you gotta say about Kent... he's always strangely happy even if he is overacting worse than William Shatner, and it's true that he does appear to laugh at odd times, but I guess he can be forgiven for that... Shatner was.

It's almost as if Pierre was saying... 'hey guys, I'm one of you but Kent isn't, he's just in it for the money not for the love of vintage Mercedes like you and me'.

I'll forgive Pierre for this one obvious misstep, hopefully it will be his last.

Nobody gets out of this life alive.

Who are these Kent and Pierre guys?

Sound like a scripted reality show aiming at propping the popularity of both.

"keeping up with the CARdashians"?
or
"the Mercedashians"?

Kent Bergsma is the owner of MercedesSource which is a website and retail outlet for all things Mercedes (only vintage?). Visit his website and you will see what he's all about. Also, search MercedesSource on YouTube and you'll be treated to a plethora of How To videos on vintage Mercedes. Not too much on the 107 though.

Pierre is another guy who publishes How To and instructional videos aimed at vintage Mercedes. On average he's no better and no worse than Kent, but the two have vastly different approaches. Pierre is more a purest while Kent is more a business man with a splash of tinkerer and a pinch inventor thrown in. Both bring value to the table.

This video is just cyber-bullying.

How many of us enjoy be told what to do by our various levels of government?

Doughy, yes he does look a little doughy in the video but I meant douchy, his video is douchy...have to agree with @nobby and @Jyuma here, video doesn’t advance his cause, he just comes off looking bad.

I think Kent's idea of what constitutes a "restoration" is way off, but he's okay. (He misuses the word restore.)

Thanks a Million
