This is the SHORT version...

I recall 6 or so months ago there was a ~3 minute version with naration for each scene. If I'm not mistaken it was on you tube or some other big site. -I'm still looking for it.

BTW I've never been big on brand loyalty but I never thought a 20 year old 230,000 mile (OM603 with a #14 head) sedan would be such a pleasure to drive.
The only thing I could trade "up" for is a CDI.

Very nice

simple, and bold at the same time. I have never seen such damage done to a MB, what series is the kennedy family car? that could be damage done by jaws of life tho... looks like the driver side(assuming left drive) took brunt of damage!

What's wrong with MBUSA? I watch a lot of television and I have never seen this commercial once. Do they want to sell cars or not?? Just show it and they will come.

I bet you wont ever see one of the newer models with 1m plus miles on it. They just dont make the same quality of car now that we enjoy. Dang accountants.

Daggone.......did any of you old timers notice how Sterling Moss has aged? I haven't seen any pix of him since the 70's. Quite a shock.....Sheesh

Great video. I'm going to watch the others.....

Does anyone remember the MBZ commercial, circa 1980, of these MBZ engineers pushing a 123 off a huge cliff, sending it crashing nose first into the rocks then tumbling and rolling for what seemed like an eternity. Then the engineers go to the bottom and open/close all four doors. I'd like to see that commercial again...

Cheers,

Bill

I don't think there is a car that is made from ANY brand, or that CAN be made with current environmental, technology and safety standards that would ever feasably reach that kind of mileage without an exorbitant amount of money being spent.

BTW has everyone seen this?

I just found it today.

You'll want the speakers on for it. Start with the "museum" (left side)
More rich history than advertising...
