Poor thing, I don't see how that thing got in that bad of shape. Wonder how the leather wore out enought to get down to the hoarse hair pad?

Anybody else notice the w123 right at the end as she is pulling up? It's at around the 29 second mark.

Thats not a "wear" spot on the chair. Did you hear where she got the car from? Did you hear X-zibits key phrases throughout the video? Put 2 and 2 together... and I'll think you'll know why there's a patch missing in the seat.

Ummm, lets just say that the previous owner may have been in the pharmaceutical business :) and the authorities were simply trying to help him remove any lost samples from under the seats :) :) :)

Disgusting, but that ride isn't really a Mercedes anymore. It could be built on any frame. At least the old girl didn't go to the crusher.

Oh, I don't know.

I''ve always liked that show for some sick reason, especially when Xhibit is the host, ( I can't really stand the other guy)

I was amused, he said "I can't go over 30 miles an hour" and I yelled "THROTTLE LINKAGE" ;)

So yes, they cheese the cars but amuse me.

Notice they didn't bother with the motor? :D

I have to say, as disgraceful as it is, I prefer a pathetic phoney pansey pink pimping over other disgraces to these cars...at least it requires a lot more money and effort than...you know :rolleyes:

I just saw it...damn that was a TRAINWRECK.

They ruined it.
And they LAUGHED when they did..........ohhhhhhh nooooooo......


No way can this be justified....no way....
video screens in the front of the headrests, silly hood ornament, totally gay color, fur seats, trunk opening and closing like that, it's throwing money straight into the trash, there is NO way to justify it, not even as some kind of parody or something. It is BEYOND tragic. The horror, the horror.....

God help me, but I hope they *never* get into home remodeling or archetectural design, or landscape contracting.....

I kept thinking, it really runs good, all it needed was a good repaint and a little body work, and good seats from a junk yard, it'd be brought back......
