V studio, was that part of Gumball? Had two friends do Gumball in a gold Ferrari with the number 48 on the door. Sound familiar?

This E24 6 series is gaudy as hell, but I love it for some reason, and not just because it matches the Benz truck! Modified by Gemballa.



Here's an MB 300E AMG 6.0


A particularly purty 500SEL AMG


The interior of a MB w126 by Carat Duchatelet. Simple but beautiful. I'm thinking about making some of those footrests, which were a factory option, for mine.


This one needs no introduction.


And to give you guys a break from the MB's, here's a beautiful old boat tail riviera.

I dunno- but I've met a Bond villain. Google "Putter Smith"- I went to high school with his daughter.

GM has always recycled styles, usually vast improvements too. Here is the 1952 Chevy Fastback

Haha, it's true. I think I might be overcompensating...Though I despise the 80's and 90's cadillacs that most stereotypical pimps love.

And I love anything Chevy from the 50's to 70's. I have a friend whose dad used to have a bel air in that exact color of the one Shifty posted, but two tone with white. I think he's still kicking himself for trading it for his current ride, a 60's government owned jeep. After the tediousness of doing all the paint on it, he says he's out of the car game.

I saw the 2000GT at the Toyota museum. Those are TINY cars. They make the 240Z look huge.
They are more on the scale of the Honda 600 or original Cinquecento.

They are proportionally fantastic so you really can't tell from photos.
I have no idea how someone larger than 5'4" can fit in it.
