This is my 1979 Mercedes-Benz 450 SEL which is basically an old school S Class.
No my car is not Diesel, I get asked that a lot but it is indeed a thirsty V8 engine. After 25 years use and a few different owners, my car still runs great and it still has the original engine in it :).
I really like this car, its just different than what most everyone else here drives. Its heavy as hell, a classic, and is in relatively good condition. Doesn't that paint job look nice? ;) I feel like I'm wanting to restore this car, but then again with some of this shit I've put into this, its not exactly keeping it original. I also wanna put some new rims on my car but I don't know what size to really go with that will fit my W116 without having to modify a bunch of things or compromise the overall ride quality just to accomodate some larger chrome rims. :p
Tinted my windows finally, more pics to come as soon as I find a nice clear day and my car is washed :P.
So far I've got 2 amps in the trunk, one of which is a JL 500/1 mono block subwoofer amp pushing one sub (which handles 500 r.m.s. to 1,000 watts max) and blah blah blah. Read the side thingy, it tells you some stuff :P. My car is a work in progress :)
I got rid of my piece of shit rear deck and had a custom one built for my car :). My speakers are nowhere to be seen now. Old pics by the way before tinting my windows :P.
