Ah, Central New Jersey, so much Meth, so little time. This popped up on my feed this morning, and all I can say is WOW… I am not sure what kind of drugs are responsible for this creation, but would I be out of line in saying I wouldn’t mind my share… Make the jump to see more…

According to the Craigslist Listing:

Im selling my custom Mercedes. The Mercedes is a 5.0 automatic. The car has 132000 miles. The car has black leather interior. The front of the Mercedes has a mustang front…

As you can see, the metal work isn’t really that bad. However, the Mustang is a great deal narrower than the original Benz, so I’m really not sure what the owner was thinking in the first place… Asking price is a Crakalicious $7,500 or Best Offer. Take a look at the listing here, and tell me what you think about it…

    I was so messed up on meth that I wrecked my Benz. My math head buddy said I can fix that for a few points. He found Benz body panels to be crazy spensive. He had a fox body beside the trailer, so he sized them up. This car is the terrible result. It should be written off. NOW

    Maybe the Pontiac Aztek isn't as bad as I thought after all…

  • Van_Sarockin

    I've never had any interest or appreciation for an S500. The unostentatious front clip is appreciated, but not enough to make me care.

  • RegalRegalia

    And it ends up looking like a Pontiac Bonneville.

    • "I'm being followed by a Mustang!"
      "I'm being passed by a Bonneville!"
      "Where'd that Mercedes come from?!?"

  • Why god why?

    Wait what?

  • I think… I certainly hope… I think it has the proper badge on at least the passenger's side.

    I think it is an unfinished job. Do something weird to the rear, too, and you can rent this out to movie and ad production companies who need an anonymous car.

  • I……er…….like it.

    • HSA❄

      That's why you are here.

      • Sjalabais

        Agreed. The craftsmanship seems good, or at least well photographed. It could be some anonymous Korean luxury flagship.

  • ConstantReader

    Yes, job looks unfinished. Shit up the back too, so there is no external evidence of what it originally was. More importantly, further proof how much MB has slid down the indistinct-nondescript car design hole.

    As a lifelong NJ resident I can attest to the methy-ness that is central/south NJ.

    Also, this looks like crap.

  • fodder650

    If the approach was to create a Fox body Ford Thunderbird. Well i guess they won. Of course that's only a coupe though.

      How we gonna stop? LOL, love that movie….

  • mac350

    Wait a minute…what?

  • ptschett

    At least it doesn't have a M-B grille logo that was sized for a Unimog, like practically every other newer M-B on the streets has, I guess?

  • Roger Henry

    I think the "why" part is important. There has got to be quite a story there somewhere…..
