A couple of interesting Mercedes Benzes

Today before all the superbowl madness, I was out and about in the State College, PA area looking around at some of the local car dealerships and shops. Of note were two interesting Mercedes Benz products.


The first- what appears to be a 1990's 300 GE that is a definate grey-market import. Complete with tacked on side marker lights that look as if they came off of a 280 SE and a substitute VIN number plate tacked to the inside of the A-pillar. This was found at the local Saab, Mazda (and other US made crap) dealer.





Also of note at an independent foreign car shop in town was a late 50s, or early 60s Mercedes Benz 219 in a rather decrepit state of affairs. It appears to be a permanent fixture in their back lot. It was last registered in 1999 in North Carolina.

I love how the GE doesn't have airbags. And wow, that interior looks a lot like my old 300E's interior.

Diggin' your guys site. What's the French connection. I'm interested as I too spend time in France and the US, but most of the old cars have been cleaned up from when I was younger.

Thanks JM.

The French connection would be me, I was born and mostly raised there but currently live in Salt Lake City while I attend the University of Utah.

Thanks for reading.
