    I watched a movie called "Too Late" (Tarantino esque murder story) and this car appeared in a couple of scenes :shock:

    Agreed. Why on earth would you paint it that colour?

    Oh dear, I wonder who thought that was a good idea? :(
    It really needs to be returned to original spec and throw away those horrible rust retainers on the wheel arches. :rolleyes:

    I grew up where rust was not a problem (Jo'burg 6000' above sea level) and as a young man, I always liked the look of those chrome covers (I still like the look on the older MBs).

    I completely agree Rory however, when you've been brought up and reside in the UK, you soon learn what a pita rust is. :D :rolleyes:

    No the shot is from the movie "Too Late" but it does look a bit like him.
