Air bag W123 (funny video)

G'day Folks,

I've been following this thread http://www.peachparts.com/shopforum/vintage-mercedes/340895-air-bagged-w108.html concerning "bagging" a W108 thinking that if I ever get my 300D back together again it might be nice to have adjustable comfortable suspension for my old bones - and not have to fit those scary front springs!

So I did a search for "air bag W123" and got this video

Not exactly what I was looking for but funny never the less.
