As you read this, I'm punishing miscreants at the Goin' For Broken 24 Hours Of LeMons. You can be sure, however, that I'm still gloating over this $10 junkyard prize.
I spotted a fairly intact looking '68 Mercedes-Benz 280S at my local self-service junkyard. Old Benzes always have cool switches and gadgets inside, so I took a look. Wow! The speedometer was in KM/H and the radio wasn't the usual thing. AM, FM, shortwave, and medium-wave! The knobs were there, the chrome was pretty nice, and the original Blaupunkt amplifier was in its rightful spot on the firewall. Got the radio, got the amp, got all the cables and hardware. Haven't had a chance to test it yet, but I know it's worth more than 10 bucks. Score!
