1968 Mercedes 280S with 1988-300 SE Engine with ECU and O2 sensor, W 126 gas tank and 4.5 model 3.27 rear axle .
Purchased in 2007 (72415 miles) this 1968 280S took me 3 Months to convert & restore in my shop up here in NC. I painted this Classic myself in Spring of 2012 with Glasurit 2 K finish # 512. This Car's paint has never been buffed so the top coat will last for many years.
This car comes with a Audiovox cruse control, all good MB-tex interior, arm and head rests, 3 point seat belts in front, New electronic speedometer (now 10,327 miles) a Becker vintage radio (with I-pod cable), 4 wheel disc brakes vented in front, 3.27 Differential (gas mileage about 20), Michelin 205-70-14 tires, a choice of Fuchs alloy rims or steel wheels with hub caps and refinished wood trim.The bulky license lights are replaced by bumper mounted units. This Companion has no rust and we do not drive her on winter salty roads . We enjoyed the car on our last years cross country trip (6,200,miles) without any trouble and the AC was working fine also. It is time for someone else to enjoy it now. I am willing to continue maintaining it for someone who is driving the car like I did.
This 108 model car with it's rejuvenated drive train is one of a kind good running Hot Babe Classic without any rattles or squeaks (now that's hard to find on any conversion). This car is in good condition, safe and a good investment you can show and enjoy driving.

If the reception it received at the Shanghai Motor Show is any judge of marketplace acceptance, Mercedes-Benz has a hit on its hands in the form of the GLA Concept. And we can understand why - we're quickly becoming fans of Mercedes' recent styling language, as defined by new models like the CLA and this GLA Concept.

The big news on the exterior front are the headlamp clusters, which have frickin' laser beams attached to their foreheads embedded inside that are capable of projecting videos and images on a screen. Plus, a pair of video cameras are mounted on the roof that can be used to capture driving excitement or removed and taken with you. How cool is that? We just hope they have a substantial locking mechanism to prevent would-be thievery...
If the exterior is mostly ready for production, with a few of the more outlandish elements moved to the trash bin - like, for instance, laser-beam headlamps and removable action cams - the interior is a true custom job that screams concept loud and clear. There are all kinds of jewel-like finishes inside, along with transparent surfaces showing what looks like metal latticework underneath and some awfully thick looking leather with massive exterior stitching done by hand similar to what you'd find on a baseball glove.
When you combine two billion citizens, 100 cities with more than a million inhabitants and an economy that's as unrestrained as Jim Cramer on an Adderall binge, China's explosive auto industry growth shouldn't be a huge surprise. Audi already lists the communist country as its largest market, while Mercedes-Benz is expecting it to be there in the next few years. Now, according to a report from Automotive News, BMW is expecting the People's Republic to overtake the United States in sales by the end of 2013.

We already discovered the extent that BMW is going to in establishing a dedicated Chinese stronghold, when we explored BMW's Shanghai-based DesignWorks studio ahead of April's Shanghai Motor Show. And while we argued that DesignWorks Shanghai hasn't really borne fruit, it isn't due to a lack of sales.
BMW China has seen a 16-percent jump in year-over-year sales, lead by a 28-percent gain in 5 Series sales. Part of BMW's growth strategy comes from an ever-expanding dealership network. Remember those 100 cities we mentioned with over one million people? According to Karsten Engel, CEO of BMW's Chinese operations, those 100-million-plus city dwellers don't have access to a premium dealership.

Tesla Model S: the Grand Award winner for being "the standard by which all future electric vehicles will be measured."
BMW 328i: it's 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder gets called out for being more powerful and frugal than the six-cylinder it replaces.
