Wonderful joke though. Great to putt around town in, during the nice weather. I think they should have put Euro lights on it though..Soon as the novelty wears off though...Ebay it again..

I think he meant 500K, not 500SL...(sigh).

I like the VW Beetle in the background...although he probably has one of those fiberglass MB hoods on that too!

The sellers statement "spared no expense" is exaggerated. Looks like he took a can of black Krylon and touched up some of the engine parts 10 minutes before he shot the pic's.

In backwoods Louisiana, a $5.00 can of Krylon is "spared no expense".
