That's the spirit!  That is well done.

This was at a local car show last weekend.  I told the guy that I grew up with a 190, so had a good conversation.  It's a 220, but he put a V8 in the front seat. He has fun getting reactions from purists.  He has done sacrilege with a few cars.  These were very common, used as taxis in Europe, you can't get the money out of a restoration, unlike a 190SL or Gullwing.  So I think it's fun!

WTF indeed! Inside it's kinda like a dragster, driving from where the backseat was.

Some more pics here (although I find the article a bit negative...) https://www.generationhighoutput.com/it-belongs-in-a-museum/

Car shows tend to separate the youngsters from the old farts.  The owner has a grey ZZ Top beard.  The blogger didn't get any more information than me.  Good to see he drives it over 100 miles, Flagstaff is north and Phoenix south of me.  The YT video is extremely annoying. 😖

Saw this on "carbuzz"........a tuner is going to make this car based on their rendering. They've already made a gorgeous convertible version of it.

If you’re on Instagram, there is no escape from this thing. It is posted constantly. The same rendering in different colors.
