Thread: The Mercedes Pickup you've been waiting for ...

    The Mercedes Pickup you've been waiting for ...



    This is a longish video, but the two versions of the pickup are shown in the first half.

    Interesting ...
    If someone blows up a school with a bomb they go after the bomber ... if someone shoots up a school they go after the gun.

    A privilege is just a right that has been taken away by government.

    Political correctness is cowardice wrapped in a lie.

    Interesting, the white one screams Ridgeline to me for some reason. Wonder if that tail light will make it to production.
    Not sure I get the off-road version, is anyone really going to take their $80k+ MB truck on any serious off-road/trail ??

    Actually, I wasn't waiting for it, but that won't stop Mercedes from trying to sell it.
    "It's 106 miles to Chicago, we've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses." They're not gonna catch us. We're on a Mission from God. Hit it.

    From the book of 1 Avalonians: Thou shalt not park a Nissan Maxima in thine driveway and thou shalt not have any gods before Toyotathon.

    It's still questionable whether they'll bring it to the US market, but I'll bet they do. If people will fork over $60k or more for a loaded Chevy truck, it's not too big a leap to having the prestige of a truck with the big M-B star in the grille.

    I can see rappers and Hollywood types jumping on this, since trucks are macho. And rich gentleman ranchers, rodeo stars, football players, and Mike D.

    Sure I would, as soon as I get that FedEx package of cash from you, $100K ought to just about cover it

    If I were to get another truck I think it would be more like my old Dakota. Used (but not abused), fairly cheap, mechanically sound & not too shabby to look at. It was fun to own just because I didn't worry about it getting scratched or dented, or if the dogs puked in the back + I could load it up & not fret over damaging the bed.

    I agree this will be another rapper/baller status-mobile.

    You don't get the money until I get the rest of the deleted emails.

    I was going to send them, then my aid deleted my "deleted items" file + scrambled my hard drive. Getting damn hard to find good help these days.
    But trust me, there was nothing in any of them pertaining to state secrets or plans it was all just silly, PC correct, non-ethnic, non-denominational, non-sexiest, class, race & sexual orientation neutral jokes & chit-chat with Bill & Chelsea.


    Holy **** - I was channeling Hillbot there for a moment !!

    You, sir, are under arrest. Anything you say can and will be used against you. Please assume the position.

    MikeD, you might just be a little late to the ruining yourself party. If you think you can stop me from voting for you based on a major regression you are wrong. All of us have to accept the fact we have to vote for a POS. But I still think you are the best POS money can't buy.

    Best summary of what I believe to be the true feelings of the electorate @ large regarding the current election I have read thus far this year.
    Seems to have trickled down to the state & local levels as well, at least here
