Mercedes Tug A War

Any one for a little friendly tug a war?

there were three HP ratings on the OM616...

1) Not much power
2) Even less power
3) Not nearly enough power!! 240D w/auto

Anyone that thinks a 240D is slow drives too fast.

80 240D Naturally Exasperated, 4-Spd 388k DD 150mph spedo 3:58 Diff

We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works

I was involved in a few of those years ago... Nissan vs. Toyota, Ford vs. Chevy... etc...

It is obvious that the beige car had a stick and burned or over heated the clutch at the end (smoke rolling out from under his car).

He had the smarter plan with an entire car and what looks to be a "load" in the trunk.

It is really kind of a ridiculous pull in the first place since the blue car had no weight where he needed it most.
