Updated my AMG 560SEC recently....enhancements :

- replaced the 3-piece AMGs with Aero I's, which i think look far better on the SEC

- AMG ducktail fitted (each of the three pieces havnig the AMG C7.... part nos)

- AMG 'Japan' version front spoiler

- Trasco International Boomerang aerial

- AMG 'Japan' burlwood/leather steering


Trasco was a big modifier of AMGs back in the 80s, very similar to Styling Garage.

The car is pretty cool now and clocked 5.7 secs on the 0-62mph run using a G-tech meter - it has :

- AMG/Renntech camshafts with polished/ported heads with the Euro ECE 300bhp 5.6 base engine, taking powere to circa 335 bhp

- FULL series 2 w126 AMG exhaust system (Sebring)

- 2.82 rear diff

- 722.370 transmission


cheers

Smashing! :thumbsup:

......an '80s expression for a very '80s icon.

As an aside, US over-the-air TV signals are going digital as of January next year and UHF/VHF bands will be auctioned off to telecoms companies.

All those old TV aerials will become useless. :(

Take that antenna off there. It looks silly. The thing isn't a Limo. The AMG wheels looked much better, sorry.

They are AMG wheels on there, or don't you know that ?

Don't tell others what to take off their cars.

talbir, want to sell your 3-peice so I can put them on my w124 AMG?
I'm afraid i put them on the AMG 560 SEL....the 3-piece wheels suit the SELs better imo....plus these 3-piece wheels are 8.5 + 10s .....won't make it on th w124 without serios mods....

cheers

You know after looking at the pictures again, I can see an attraction to the boomerang aerial, although for me it's no so much an aesthetic thing but more the statement it makes...classic eighties, 'over the top exuberance'...I wouldn't hesitate to put one on Panzy

In fact if that were my car in white with the boomerang id be having a hunt for a big old 80s car phone and adding 22 carat gold plated badging just to finish off that "Oil sheik" special feel.
awesome

I have the boomerang antenna on one of mine too, I wont take it off because thats the way it came, and actually still does work! Someone mentioned that some sort of converter box will be available to allow the tv in the car to still work after the signal goes digital, can someone explain how thats possible?

You can pick up those at any RadioShack, Best Buy, Circuit City, etc., but I haven't seen any for 12 volt yet.
