'82 Mercedes 300TDT First Start In 8 Years
Just bought two more of these wonderful cars. This one is a 1982 model, that sat behind a barn for 8-10 years. I'm going to use this one as a parts car, because the car is rusted beyond repair.
300D Mercedes - Bleeding Engine
$300 car, all it needed was a bleeding and then it drove great. It was sitting in this guy's yard for 2 1/2 years with air in the engine due to a loose fuel filter. He thought it was broken so he gave it away =] engine has only 195,000 miles on it, which is nothing for these cars. It has the standard straight 5 engine.
I will be using this car in my first veggie oil conversion project.

Mercedes Million Kilometer Test
Mobil 1 put 1 million kilometers on a Mercedes-Benz engine then broke it down to see how the fully synthetic motor oil did in leaving minimal deposits and minimal wear on the engine, demonstrating how Mobil 1 will allow an engine to operate in like new conditions through an extended test length.
RR Phantom Destruction....!!!!
The majestic Rolls Royce Phantom is bombarded with bullets and then the unthinkable. Proper grenades detonated under this lavish luxury limo. It withstands it all. Just awesome. I love Rolls Royce....!!!!
Slideshow Part5 Kaufdorf car graveyard Spring 2010
Kaufdorf Autofriedhof - Switzerland's vintage car graveyard.
It was the biggest graveyard of its kind in Europe -- a vast metal jungle of more than 1,000 rusting vintage cars including forgotten British Wolseleys, "sit up and beg" Ford Prefects, rotting Porsches and even the wreck of a Rolls Royce Silver Cloud.
The collection of decaying old-timers, which go back to the late-1920s, sits in makeshift corrugated iron garages and among trees on the edge of Kaufdorf some 10 miles south of Switzerland's capital Bern.
After surviving for 75 years, the authorities have declared that the collection is an environmental hazard and decided to clear it by court order. But the plan has provoked uproar among concerned Kaufdorf locals and more than just a few other Swiss residents. A campaign to preserve the site was started when an open day was held. The organisers expected about 50 people to attend, but 10,000 turned up. Franz Messerli, whose father founded the car cemetery, said: "We never expected such interest. Our aim is to preserve it for posterity as a national work of art."
Mr Messerli's father, Walter, opened what was originally intended as a vehicle breaker's yard in 1933. A part-time racing driver and scrap-metal dealer, he was fascinated by cars and even taught himself to be a mechanic. At its peak, his collection numbered about 2,000 vehicles.
