Lightbulb Mercedes-Benz G-Class - Gelandeplowagen

Mercedes-Benz G-Class - Gelandeplowagen

If you're going to spend twelve hours plowing snow, it may as well be from behind the wheel of a Geländewagen.The Mercedes-Benz G-class - otherwise known as the Geländewagen - celebrates its thirtieth birthday this year. There are plenty of contemporary models that are riding streaks longer than that, but none of them have done so in quite the same manner as the G-wagen. You see, this isn't just a thirty-year-old nameplate; it's a thirty-year-old vehicle. A heavily updated one, to be sure, but still the same box Mercedes rolled out when Jimmy Carter was president and Journey hit number sixteen on the Billboard charts with "Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin'." Not to belabor the point, but this rig hit the streets the same year that the Gairy dictatorship in Grenada was overthrown by the New Jewel Movement. Gosh, does that make me feel old.

I can't imagine using a car like that for plowing snow!

Yeah, I made up MY mind sometime ago that I would not, under ANY circumstances, pay over $95,000 for an SUV.
