This package takes the scenic route

that I take when I go out for a drive. Just a few more miles though.

Some time ago MB-AMG had a poster contest/send a pic of your car in/something like that.

So I sent a pic of Schwarzie in and had completely forgotten about it till I got the UPS email about a pending delivery sometime this afternoon.

Don't know for sure what this is BUT I don't know anyone in Germany so it's probably that.

It sure takes a circuitous route to get here.

No wonder it is so expensive getting parts over there.

AND that's what it was--a mosaic of every AMG car sent in by their owner.

The poster is 3'x2'



Each individual car pic is 1/4" x 1/4".



So that means there are 4*36 x 4*24 or 13,824 AMG car pictures on that poster And I included the black band in my calc so it's fewer cars than I said. Not doing it again.

Can anyone say: "Where's Waldo"??

BTW, I have not tried to find Schwarzie. Yet

yah, it was semi-folded in a square box. It was rolled then someone "flattened" it . No need for that. P'd me off and I doubt I can get the folds out. I might try a light steam then wipe down and iron it.

It looks like there's duplicates in there (I see a speedo numerous times). Assume it was for colour purposes
