      I don't know why people think anything on bags is cool. It's not. It's the equivalent of a mullet for suspension.

      This is sweet.

      27-Years-Owned 1986 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3-16 5-Speed
      https://bringatrailer.com/listing/19...90e-2-3-16-47/

      This 1986 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.3-16 was acquired in 1993 by the selling dealer, who has since added approximately 20k of the 106k indicated miles. The car was repainted in its factory shade of Blue-Black Metallic in 2010, and the black leather interior is equipped with factory Recaro seats, air conditioning, and a cassette stereo. Power is supplied by a 2.3L inline-four paired with a five-speed manual transmission, and additional features include 15″ alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, and a limited-slip differential. This W201 received a Silver Star certificate at the June Jamboree in New Jersey in 2015 and is now offered with service records, an option list, a clean Carfax report, and a clean New Jersey title.

      The 16-valve 190E featured a body-colored front air dam, side skirts, fender flares, and a trunk spoiler with an integrated third brake light. This example was delivered new in Blue-Black Metallic (199U) and was refinished with matching under-claddings approximately a decade ago due to clearcoat failure. A Silver Star Preservation badge has been added to the grille, and a ceramic coating has been applied. Close-ups of the paintwork and exterior trim are shown in the photo gallery below.

      Yeah, this car was peak Prelude, and this particular example is clean and unmolested. I wish they'd bring back a successor to the Prelude/Integra/RSX, but the trick would be getting people to buy them new.

      With the Accord and Civic coupes both gone or on their way out, I doubt we'll see another Prelude anytime soon. Maybe reimagined as a lifted CUV with a hidden third door. They'll call it the PreludeX or something worse.

      Well, I don't recall ever seeing a Schwimmwagen on their site before. It's at $80,000 and counting with 2 days to go. I would imagine it'll crack $100,000 fairly handily, but you never know.

      https://bringatrailer.com/listing/19...-schwimmwagen/


      It has a later 36 horse engine, so it's nowhere close to original. Of course in the war they had a life expectancy of about 6 months and it's been over 75 years, so that isn't too surprising.


      The engine is down inside of a well and the only underside access is a cover to change the oil and screen, so servicing them wouldn't be easy. Doing a valve adjustment would suck!

      Dude I saw that Schwimmwagen a year or two ago at an aircooled show in Livermore which is not too far from where the seller is located. The owner was super nice and showed how everything worked. Really fascinating stuff. IIRC the problem with these cars, as with any amphibious vehicle, is that they're not particularly great at driving or boating since both involve compromises. In any case, that car is definitely on my "would if I could" list.

      Americans hate EVs because they grew up with Power Wheels that were glacially slow, ran out of power in 20 minutes and took an entire day to recharge.

      While certainly not fun on the road, this was also a vehicle built for war. It was 4WD so that it could get out of the water, but that also made it much better on land, at least as far as traction goes. These are supposed to be very good off road, but of course I have no experience with one. The closest I've come to driving one was a Kubelwagen at a show. It was being pushed back into a warehouse and someone had to "drive" it, so since I was skinny I drove it in with about 6pp, or "people power".

      Blue loop carpeting lines the floors and rear luggage shelf. A Becker Mexico radio, which would have been a $264 option in 1957, is mounted under the dash.

      That would be $2,486 in 2020. Expensive radio.
