Good article - helps explain to people why I have a Puch logo on the front of my G. Most people don't believe me when I tell them the G is built in Austria by a company other than MB!

So, if BMW X3 is built in the same place as our G, then is the X3 hand-built like the G?? Apparently, they have many assembly lines in the factory...so, what makes the G assembly line any special as compare to a Chrysler minivan's line??

while digging for images I found a CD with 217 outstanding G images (606 Mb)- all of them extra high resolution.

If you are interested I could make it available on my site for a small fee.

High res example: http://www.rubicon-trail.com/public/Austria.jpg

RE: OT - angry DC share holders

Harald, why must you tease us so?!! [:D] [:)]

In Yahoo news,

"Shareholders and fund managers have criticized DaimlerChrysler for its recent earnings slide and quality problems at its Mercedes division, singling out Chief Executive Juergen Schrempp with demands that he step down."

According to the article, private firms have tried to buy out the largest shareholder's shares in hopes of breaking up and dissolving Mercedes. Bad idea!

Make it avaliable Harald...

Harald,
Make your disk avaliable to us, I'm interested at a reasonable price. Hey! There may never be another chance to get one to go with my Gwagen.
Post it here when you put it on your website. Thanks

RE: more "hand built"

You know, I was thinking about that third picture you posted Harald: the one where the worker is pushing the G on a cart.

A rather bizarre caption for that photo could be perhaps, "Mercedes-Benz, in order to fully implement it's newly cost cutting procedures, has decided that all future G500's will be self powered by two standard men pushing the vehicle from the rear".

Then, of course, the marketing team could have several shots of the side of the G500 as it approaches a stoplight. An exhaugsted man can be seen holding on to the sides of the back of the G500. Once the vehicle completely stops, the hood of the engine compartment opens to reveal no engine. Instead out pops a second male worker from the engine compartment who quickly switches places with the first tired worker.

[:D] [:D] [:D] [:D]

Vroom Vroom!!

Harald, The idea of a CD with photos is a good idea. If you build it they will come. If you produce one, post, and I would love to purchase one! Thanks. Maybe someday I/we could buy a simple, straight forward 461 LWB/SWB. They would sell every one of them in Colorado!

Very nice pics! Thank you very much as always. I've seen some pics of G production lines, but not ones like these.

Hi Harald, I received the package yesterday. Many great pics. A lot of them are very beautiful. I especially like pics takes at the factory. Are you the one who took all the pics? If so, you are a really good photographer.
