WASHINGTON Some of ousted leader Saddam Hussein's missing Mercedes-Benz collection has gone 'underground.'

Search teams, some hunting for Iraq's alleged weapons of mass destruction, found dozens of Mercedes-Benz automobiles from former Iraq leader, Saddam Hussein's extensive collection buried beneath the sands, U.S. officials say.

At least one W110 chassis Mercedes was found when searchers saw the tops of its twin tail fins poking up from the sands, said one Pentagon official familiar with the hunt. He said search teams have also found several M-classe and W123 chassis vehicles buried at al-Garagem Areia, west of Baghdad.

Looks like there's a front end of a "cream" or "offwhite" or similar color w123 in that picture there. Looks like U.S. style headlights with amber fogs.

The whole story is is about as believable as the one about the WMD.
