While I am not a Mercedes person, those are beautiful. I would love the see a muscle car equivalent. Which I think is called Jay Leno's garage.

With the advancements in 3d printing and modeling, I would love to see this sort of thing for a lot of classic cars. Worked on '61 Cadillac Eldorado, '63 Cadillac Fleetwood Sedan, and '63 Corvair Spyder Monza with my dad, those original parts would be super nice to help maintain those cars.

I was given a tour of the place by the painter a few years back when I did deliveries to the classic center. Lots of parts for pre-war cars were lost in WWII during the allied bombings of German industrial centers so they have to fabricate everything themselves. Everybody who works there is the best of the best around SoCal. I remember wanting to get a job at the parts counter back in the day but I believe one of the job requirements was that I had to read and speak German fluently in order to read all the old technical data and to talk to the warehouses back in Europe. Cool thing is a lot of the cars are for sale; it's like a museum where you can buy the pieces.

I had my 67 RHD station wagon restored there. Longest 2 1/2 years of my life. Worth every penny.

Leno has a hell of a lot more than muscle cars; his garage looks more like a medium-sized auto museum. He's got a Bugatti area, for Pete's sake!

Subby finds a cool article he/she thinks the Fark membership would enjoy.

Subby carefully copies and pastes the link to submit.

Subby decides, WTF - let's throw in a left wing, class warfare, horseshiat headline.

Subby was right with his/her headline idea, this is FARK after all, the days of not having a lefty bias by mods/admins are long farking gone.

fark you subby. And fark you more, mod/admin that approved that headline. You had to throw your bullshiat into a cool story about something that had nothing to do with your politics.

Shame on Mitt Romney for being successful, or shame on subby for being a bitter looser and failure?

Shame on you for not knowing how to spell "loser" correctly. Loser.

Actually it's only okay for Progressives to have millions and lavish homes and private jets.

You think Al Gore is cutting back anytime soon .

His success isn't the problem. The issue is that wealth has a funny way of betraying a fundamental lack of good judgement. Mittens is a walking testament to this concept.

If being wealthy betrays a fundamental lack of good judgement, I want that lack of good judgement. Of course if having a lack of good judgement makes you wealthy, Fark must be one of the richest places ever. Surpassed only by Myspace, Reddit, Digg and consumerist.

Not what I said. I said it has a tendency to. You seem to think I implied that poor judgement leads to wealth.

So you think that Romney became wealthy by exercising bad judgement? Or because he got wealthy, that wealth betrayed him and caused him to get bad judgement? Or he only has bad judgement in non wealth-producing areas of his life?

We on Fark need clarity about this RIGHT NOW!
