Sweet. Steven Tyler had a cream over coffee one of those I saw in a "Cars of the Stars" feature in some magazine years ago. He and Joe Perry both had Super 7's, too.

Have a good idea it was a Merc, as the Home Depot I'd just left is right across the street from the local Mercedes dealership. German plates, small Yamaha DS on the back. Wish I could have taken some better pics. I thought of following, but it's a construction nightmare at that on ramp right now and I couldn't change lanes.

It must be the auto-union.

Um, that is an Auto-Union V-16. the eight visible exhaust pipes and interlocked rings on the nose are good indications. And the grille shape and engine placement.

But he maybe meant what you're saying.

The wife bought herself one just like this.

Very possessive , I hardly get to drive it.



She could only afford the 180 compressor, performance is adequate.

Edit: She preferred to rather add a beautifull two-tone (Black/Grey) interior and the full hog sound system.

Well fuck me, I C&P'd the wrong pic. I'm blaming it on the sudafed and Mucinex I've been takingn all week.
The car I saw was either a W125 or W154, unfortunately I don't have access to the hard drive with all those Sebring and Indy F1 pictures on it.

Do have access to this one, though:

I looked at the photo about ten times before I pressed "reply". I didn't expect to be the first to notice.

Maybe this cold is going around.

The restoration story also belongs to the Auto-Union. I'm trying to dig it up. But this W154 story is pretty cool, too. http://www.paulrussell.com/portfolio...-benz/39_W154/
