that's b/c it's squatting -- when the hydraulics raise the car, the rear wheels straighten out. i'd like to see some pics of this car raised a little up off the ground, and also of the front -- it really has potential.Prochambers - 4/15/2005 8:38 AM
Are you sure that's not a Photoshop picture. Why is the rear wheel slanting like that.
LOL.. fuel economy and power? Those have nothing to do with lowriders as they are not intended for everyday driving.jzaroh - 4/15/2005 9:03 PM
I am 22 years old. But given my generation's taste in contemporary arts, I consider myself born 40 - 50 years late.
Ruined a true classic /8. What is the purpose of a lowrider? How does the setup increase fuel economy, power, or appearence? Glad that's not my old car.
The issue is the same for 123s and 126s, as â€˜youngtimersâ€™ they have not yet reached classic status (â€˜oldtimersâ€™) - and thatâ€™s for a whole other threadâ€¦ [:0] The problem is someday there wonâ€™t be so many 123s or 126s. Rust and accidents are taking their toll. I think we should start now to respect and preserve the classics these cars will become.obaja - 4/16/2005 5:40 AM
w123s there are sooooo many of them...
And thats PRECISELY what would've happened, had this guy not come along and saved this car. Tell me, purists, just WHERE WAS the classic restorator? Why can we post SO many pics of vintage MB's that have been turned out like the above? Why CAN'T we post more that have been "fully restored to stock"? Why didn't a purist put in the effort to find and save this car instead of the "punk"? Now that it's done, WHERE is the PURIST to offer this guy the check to reclaim the car and make it "right"? HE AIN'T THERE. The fabled classical restorators simply are not out there. And the one's who are, are NOT stepping up to the plate. They are not willing to foot the bill to get the look they desire like so MANY of these young "ruiner's" are. So, who is? Young "punks" like the guy above, who literally find a car like that over-grown in grandpa's field, pump about $10,000.00 into it, and "ruins" it as many of you say. But YOU didn't save the car, you just arm chair-critiqued it after THAT guy put it back on the road. Some of you need to get a grip. I've seen guys on this board who think 18 inch AMG monoblocks are blasphamey. WHERE do you draw the line, and WHO draws it?MB250 - 4/16/2005 2:11 PM
That's a shame, I'd rather let mine sit on the front lawn and rust away then have it look like that.
