not a chance, these were brought from another country...most of the old Benz's are elsewhere or the Iraqi ministry uses them...matter of fact we have a few of them here and they are still running

we also have three of his son's Porsches: 2 928's (GT and GTS), and a 911 Turbo...the 911 ran pretty well

The paint and primer is removed down to the aluminum. No silver. Its on the mtm website. The plastic bumbers have a special aluminum effect paint job.
Seems like a huge waste to weight down and aluminum spaceframe design with kevlar huh?
