THIS IS A NO RESERVE LISTING.

This is my 1986 Classic Motor Carriages (CMC) Gazelle, a replica of the 1929 Mercedes SSK roadster.  This car has only 3810 original miles since new.

Gazelle Mercedes replicas were built by Classic Motor Carriages in Miami, Florida.  They used several chassis/drivetrain options, and this one, the Mustang chassis with the Mustang 2.8L V6, automatic transmission and air conditioning, was the best quality, most powerful and most highly optioned of their vehicles.   You could order a Gazelle with a Volkswagen Beetle motor, a Ford or Chevy 4-cylinder, or this one, the 2.8L V6.  This is the best of all the Gazelle cars, with the most power, best sounding engine, best performance and easy parts availability.

This car is equipped with air conditioning, but it doesn't currently work.  I'm sure it could be made to work if someone wanted, but as a convertible fun car, who really needs it?  This car also has a heater, which not all of them did.

This car has a folding convertible top in good condition. 

The exterior and paint and body of this Gazelle Mercedes are good.  The car is straight and clean with no major defects.  The undercarriage is superbly clean and solid.  After all, this car has always been garaged and never winter-driven, nor even driven in the rain. 

The interior is in good shape.  The seats are very presentable, with some tape over a few split seams and some minor interior wear typical of the age of the car, but it looks good overall.  The previous owner covered up the small rear seat with an enclosure that could be removed if you wanted access to the rear seats again. 

The hood has been painted with an expensive Ford "flop" color that looks green from one angle, purple from another.  It looks really neat on the car.

This car starts, runs and drives well.  The Ford 2.8L V6 is powerful and sounds great. The carburetor is brand new.  The automatic transmission shifts well and the brakes, steering and handling are good.  

This is a replica kit car of a 1929 vehicle, so please don't expect 2014 Mercedes build quality or stability.  You won't be taking the highway at 140 mph or taking this car on long cross-country road trips.  It is totally reliable and dependable, it just doesn't have the creature comforts of a modern new car and it has certain rattles, etc.  This would make a great fun car, weekend car or a car to take to local cruise-ins.  This car gets TONS of attention.  You can't drive a quarter mile without someone waving or asking questions about it.   Everybody loves this car! 

Many folks replace the Gazelle logos and hood ornaments with Mercedes logos, which has not been done to this car.  You could certainly buy those logos and put them on the car easily- it would certainly keep people guessing! 

This car has a clean and clear OH title ready to transfer.  It is titled as a 1986 "Homemade Gaz 2D" serial number B9242.

This car is kept in my garage in Willoughby, OH.

UK workers strand car on island of asphalt to keep working

Wed, 06 Feb 2013 08:30:00 EST

Generally speaking, when you illegally park your car, you're likely to get ticketed and towed, but there is probably at least one motorist in Scotland who wishes that was the case. After workers had blocked off a portion of the parking lot for the Edinburgh Waverley railway station, the driver of this Mercedes-Benz S-Class reportedly moved some of the barriers to park in one of the empty spots.
Rather than having the vehicle towed, the work crew simply tore up the asphalt around the leaving just the one parking spot intact, and as you can see in the image above (posted to the Twitter account of Harold Norstad), the crew even built a small asphalt ramp so the car could get off its blacktop pedestal. Since this happened last week, there's no word as to whether the car was eventually moved or towed for the resurfacing work to continue.
Let this be a warning...

Mercedes-AMG considering turbo fours, hybrid sixes for future performance sedans

Tue, 29 Apr 2014 09:30:00 EST

Think of the letters AMG and you'll probably end up picturing a performance sedan with a big V8. Such has become, after all, the Mercedes turning division's calling card. But with the introduction of its 2.0-liter turbo four, AMG is working at turning that notion on its head.
The highly potent engine produces 355 horsepower and is presently installed in the A45 AMG hatchback, CLA45 AMG sedan and GLA45 AMG crossover, giving Benz's smallest family a full range of performance models. But that might not be the full extent of the high-strung four-pot's use.
Speaking with AMG boss Tobias Moers, Britain's What Car? magazine reports that Affalterbach is considering slotting the same engine into larger models, particularly performance sedans like the C-Class. As we recently reported, Mercedes is already preparing to up the power from the turbo V6 in the C400 to slot a C450 Sport in below the C63 AMG. The C450 is expected to offer around 367 horsepower where the CLA45 AMG et al pack 355, but the lighter weight of the four-cylinder engine would likely offset the truancy of those extra dozen horses. Of course such a prospect would be much further down the pipeline than the C450 Sport which is expected to arrive much sooner.

2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series [w/video]

Wed, 13 Mar 2013 11:57:00 EST

Now Even Sharper Than The Razor's Edge
There have been five Black Series models since the Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG Black Series introduced itself to European audiences in 2006. Following that, the Black Series club has hosted appearances by the 2008 CLK63 AMG Black Series, the 2009 SL65 AMG Black Series and last year's 2013 C63 AMG Black Series. The sixth member of the group is one we would have thought already was a Black Series car in its standard guise. Right out of the box, the SLS AMG is loud, frenetic, cozy, boisterous and frightfully easy to oversteer. How much more Black did it need to get?
Quite a bit so, apparently. The SLS AMG Black Series has lost weight, gained power and been refitted with upgrades and aero bits from front to rear. If you liked the way it looked before, you'll probably be an even bigger fan of this one. If you thought it looked ungainly, well, this one should stay even further away from pageants. Regardless of where you come down this is the best SLS AMG variant we've driven.
