Probably in the garage at the Tokyo Imperial Palace... if it were me, would've been in my bedroom and my girlfriend would've been in the garage.

Let the kvetching begin: the $150K widebody is here-

Here let me kick it off:

Moldy looking cluster, green coolant, no blended duck-tail spoiler, widebody from Japan not Germany = less desirable for $150k?? I'll hang on to my money for something better.

^ Actually read the links, so it is a German AMG Widebody imported to Japan then to California? Probably all cut up with smog equipment ect. Pass.


BTW- This is all tongue in cheek. Just trying to roll with the OPs intention of the thread.

Agree on the abundance of.... patina... but the ad claims it was built in Germany. Not sure why it is LHD though...?

I've always heard that it is a status thing to have a LHD car in Japan. There are a lot of them.
