I don't think I will ever understand peoples desire to destroy things, especially a classic Benz! Idiots!

Only if the body is so rusted out it's no longer safe to be on the road would this be exscusable!

LOL "So, instead of crushing said car, it was decided to take the car, remove the oil cap, run the engine at WOT, while the other team captains dropped items into the engine. Things that were put into the poor engine included New England Clam Chowder, milk-o-magnesia, fabric softener, Heiniken Beer, a loose bolt, cleanser, and other things."

I wonder if they got to change the oil before they hit the track again? :D

I guess winnmut's 300D made a better lemon's showing than this one.

peoples choice picks one of the *least liked cars and they destroy it.

I am very happy to hear that it managed to put up with all of the mobs "performance additives"

there are other videos of people doing the same thing (with beer and nuts and bolts) to a V8 and it only too one of those things about a min to freeze.

LONG LIVE THE BULLETPROOF 617!!!!!

Not necessarily the slowest car, just the most disliked.

Finished 24th. Not bad. Hope the team that fielded the 300D is on the forum so they can give us the details.

Oh man, do you remember that year they chose "Christine" as one of the People's Choice picks? I hadn't seen so many body bags at the track since that Ford Pinto and Crown Vic had that weird rear-on crash on the track back in 04.:rolleyes:
