Hot Rod of dreams: Small Block Chevy swapped Mercedes W123 Wagon.

This Mercedes was just featured on BaT and is currently for sale on ebay for 12 grand. While I think the price is way too high for a car with tacky wheels, ugly bumpers and a 4 speed slushbox, the idea is as awesome as it gets. » 1/19/14 8:32am 1/19/14 8:32am

This Mercedes With A Cat On It Was The Most Interesting Car In Geneva

Remember our welcome post from Geneva last Monday? Two Bugatti Veyrons and a Ferrari FF were in front of that hotel. Not bad, but no real story there.

LeMons Torture Test Results: Mercedes-Benz

A new owner is taking over, and she's not interested in keeping these cars, which go back to the 1950s or maybe even earlier. The guys on are…

People's Curse Fails To Kill Diesel Benz, Once-Angry Mob Has Change Of…

We've seen some 24 Hours of LeMons People's Curses that destroy cars with extreme prejudice (say, the Salazar Racing BMW » 8/24/08 1:25pm 8/24/08 1:25pm, or the ), but this time things went a bit differently.

1982 Mercedes-Benz 300CD, With Bonus German Coupe Poll

Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California.
