For those playing along at home, the Mercedes-Benz 450SEL 6.9 was the 1970s equivalent of AMG hardware. It was the company's flagship — an S-Class with firepower to match far smaller sports cars with far fewer seats. Its antecedent was the Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 6.3, which was a highly precise, Teutonic response to the rise of American-style muscle and cheapo gasoline. Slicing off the rear half of this 450 to approximate caminoness insults all that is good and proper with the world, likely murdering kittens and class hamsters and depriving small children of dairy products by its mere existence. To paraphrase Yoda, let this happen not. [Thanks (sort of) to Tyler for the tip.]
