As if Mercedes driver's needed more "help" for their image ...

This Happens.

First, you wonder what leads someone to do something this utterly stupid. Then you just wish he was driving a BMW, Lexus, Audi, Acura, or ANYTHING other than a W126 MB.

Unbelievable.

Good point. . Of course, all of the dentist I've ever met were creepy, so I'm not suprised.

I wouldn't want that guy working on my teeth.
I actually have a very good dentist.

Dentists have the highest suicide rate.. I understand why.. we all or most of us hate going to the place...



But for "image".. I see no issue.. just some guy that got caught in a fight and the media portrays it thusly..


people think my car is cool,bad ass, sweet, awesome, and very fitting of who I am ..

Well, the W126 has something of an image, (not helped any by hollywood), of a "Mob" or "Gangster" car. It has been seen as the conveyance of criminals, crooked politicians, and third world dictators (or was that the W100-Pullman), and although plenty of respectable, honest people still drive them, people still think of 'em (especially Black ones), as somewhat sinister. We used mine as transport for our candidates for mayor and commissioner in our town election, although one of the candidates wanted to use my Town Car, instead. When I asked him why, he said, "This thing looks like something out of The Godfather III. " As I said earlier, this doesn't help any.

Dave.
