1977 Mercedes Benz 450sl on 2040-cars
Haddam, Connecticut, United States
Nice Mercedes that has been redone then parked for quite some time in a garage. It has a nice paint job that shines up nicely. The car runs and I have driven it around the block and it seems to shift fine. The car starts hard but runs better after it has been warmed up. If you shut it off, it will start right back up when the engine is warm. There is a small exhaust leak by the catalytic converter. I've had the car for about a year and don't foresee myself having the time to get it road ready. The grill has a few cracks in it and the hood has a small dent in it. The left headlight plastic around the bulbs is cracked also. There is a blue convertible top on the car but it has a few small tears in it and the plastic window is in bad shape. The drivers window was going up and down well, but it went down once and now will not go back up. The brake light is on and it seems like the rear brakes might be hanging up a little. Overall, it is a great looking car that just needs some time to go through all of the little issues that it has. I do not have a title for the car, just a bill of sale because that is all CT requires with older cars. Look pictures over well and email me with any questions or if you would like more pictures. If you live close enough, you can come take a look at the car. Car should be picked up by a trailer or flatbed and problems should be sorted out before put on the road. Relisting this car because previous winning bidder was not from the US and was not able to complete the transaction. I will only sell to customers in the United States.

After Sunday's big game, YouTube will be the place to watch every commercial that you missed when you left your seat for an emergency guac refill or, as we say in Cleveland, took the Browns to the Super Bowl. That makes YouTube the nation's water cooler on Monday, and it's got some preliminary stats to share in the lead up to kickoff.

As you know, Super Bowl advertisers, particularly automakers, like to endlessly tease their big budget commercials in the weeks before the game, many times revealing them outright days in advance. Because of this, YouTube can tell us which commercials have been viewed the most so far, and their top five list is all automakers.
Kaley Cuoco appears to have been a good investment for Toyota, as her ad for the RAV4 has garnered the most YouTube views - six million and counting - among Super Bowl commercials so far. Second place goes to Mercedes-Benz, though not its actual Super Bowl commercial, but rather the teaser for it. You know, the one with Kate Upton and the car washing, which is up to 5.6 million views. Third place is Audi's Prom commercial (3.3M views), fourth goes to Volkswagen's slightly controversial Get In, Get Happy ad (3.3M views), and the fifth and final spot is bookended by the teaser video for Kaley Cuoco's commercial (3.2M views). You can watch all five in order below.

What will become of Maybach? That question has been rattling around the halls of Daimler headquarters in Stuttgart for some time now. But all questions will be answered, and answered soon: according to reports, the German automaker is currently evaluating prototypes and propositions for its top-end marque, and will make its decision next month.
So, what are the options? On the one hand, Daimler could kill the Maybach brand altogether. It was a notion ill conceived and even more poorly executed, taking an old platform and building a new flagship atop it. In that way, it was sort of like the Chrysler Crossfire, only far more costly to both the buyer and manufacturer. On the other hand, Daimler could opt for the long-time-coming proposition of contracting the production (and possibly much of the development) of a new generation of Maybachs to Aston Martin.
In a world where the YouTube hoax continues to thrive, it's hard to know what to think of this little vid, but here are the facts as we know them: a coupe that looks like a first-generation Mercedes-Benz CLK gets crushed by a giant front-end loader. There you have it.
Our questions arise in the aftermath - we know industrial resource machinery is heavy, but the Benz gets squashed so flat we wonder if someone's trying to play a joke on us. We hear that the white coupe may have been the heavy-equipment operator's foreman's car, but who knows? The on-camera interview seems awfully conveniently placed, yes? See for yourself in the video below and then leave us your thoughts in Comments.
