Talking 300D could NOT be killed, even though they tried.

(sorry if it is a repost.)



Well, we just had the peoples curse, and this time there was a twist. The eam who got cursed was team Stugots LeMons, driving an 80’s vintage Mercedes 300 TurboDiesel, that in the words of Jay was a pig on the track. 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. You know what, the engine did not seized. And there was chanting in the pits “let ‘em race, let ‘em race, let ‘em race”. And so they did


"Hate to sound like a broken record, but only three things will be around after the Apocalypse: cockroaches, Twinkies, and pre-electronic control Mercedes-Benz diesels"
