    Benz SL500 Kit

    To whom it may concern,

    I am interested in a Mercedes SL500 Kit for my LeBaron. I just saw this http://adcache.collectorcartraderonl...0/35821190.htm ad and I want to do this, this company has pretty much just added the Benz body right on top of the LeBaron Interior and everything which means little work for me ;D If anyone has any information on this kit, I would like to know about it.

    Thanks

    i wouldnt be surprised, considering they expact some $12k
    for a car u can make for $2k.
    we just sold our 87 lebaron turbo for $900 so go figure.

    now my favorite part no question is:
    "BUILT ON A CHRYSLER LEBARON INCORPORATING AMERICAN ENGINEERING AND PERFORMANCE WITH NO EUROPEAN DOWNSIDE"

    what performance? ours had trouble climbing a hill in 3rd gear
    automatic (you could hear it go to 1st and struggle)

    hahaha, no european downside....hahhahah
    for anyone who doesnt know, ford makes cars that last 200k
    miles max and then break down, of course u can spend your
    life on one car and make it outlast but obviously whats the
    point. mercedes last ALOT more, 350k miles+ without many
    major probs. porsche carreras too here in Los Angeles.

    basically i needed this good wholesome laugh today

    Yeah...Mercedes is known for making junk, unreliable cars. Ferrari and Lamborghin make cantankerous SLOW cars, and they are shoddily built. Rolls Royce makes junk cars with lousy interior detail. BMW would be okay, if they made a car or two that could handle the corners.

    Did I also mention that I was recently proclaimed Pope/Emperor of the Catholic Church? Bless you all!

    I hereby proclaim that from now on the popemobile will be an 87 Dodge Aries K "Woody" Station wagon!! It will have a Flowmaster for added "zip".

    Re:Benz SL500 Kit

    hey guys...
    follow up question on the lebaron
    has there ever been a good lebaron made...did they clean up problems in the 95 model...cause i got a line on a 500sl kitcar at a pretty good price if i can decide that the car was decent and not the total p.o.s. posted above earlier...
    any help or input..?
    thanks

    ps it would be hilarious to have a kit car like this because when someone suspects my ferrari or lambo for being a kit (fake) i just fool em with this thing...lol

    Just by the real thing for a couple more grand, I'm sorry but those sl 500 kits look like shit, here is some listings from ebay for the real things for under 20 grand. p.s. these cars are listed on regular local newspapers for under 20 grand.
