My local Merc dealer is a jackass and the 190 is all but extirpated but there's just something about the Evolution version 2.5-16, gotta love that car.

That they bothered to keep the flying star hood ornament speaks volumes.

Klaus is still King.

Once upon a time Mercedes made vehicles that would run long after the body succumbed to time. Now, I don't think many will make to the first service without problems. It's sad.

My old man was a huge fan of BMW, Mercedes, and vw cars from the 70s and 80s. He had a plethora of beetles and always wanted a BMW. He was tickled to death when i showed up in my 550i and we went for a rip.

It really is sad about Merc these days, yes. BMW are worse from what I hear (I've not had the misfortune so wouldn't know).

There's a video somewhere on YouTube of some guys who got a C63 AMG -- which is a nice car if it were not for the kitsch "I shop at The Gap and watch US rallycross" body style. So they fitted a 190E 2.5-16 Evo body onto it and it just looked fantastic. Heh. I'll try to dig it up.
