I'm sure she feels & smells of wonderful leather, but the poor girl looks awful & so wrong!  :'(

A couple of embossed CCs, she could have been designed by Chanel!

You'd think with so much attention to detail they would have put the flashes in the front fender behind the chrome headlamp trim...

Just give it to me... I wouldn't say no.
1970 280SL. Please do not mail or PM me questions on Pagoda's... I'm not likely to know the answer.  Please post on the forum instead!

I would liken this to a beautiful model wearing the most perfectly cut, perfectly sewn "over the top" dress imaginable.    Also, her shoes (wheels) are atrocious!
Granted, because beauty is in the eye of the beholder - -  It's all cool :D

Cheers, Hank

Why on earth redesign a car thats already looks great!
You don´t redesign your Armani suit.
And Braque has already been through that phase, stay original!

I could almost get on board with the interior because of the difficulty of getting some of the materials and expense but the oddball numbers and stripes?  Baffling.  And the painted bundt wheels?  nicht!

But it would be easy to put the exterior right.  I could live with the interior I think.

But it would be much nicer stock.
