I'm a Poser and I didn't know it LOL

Stopped to fill up the Mercedes this morning and while waiting for the pump to finish (I use the slowest speed setting) I had a patron come up and talk to me. The conversation went a little like this:

Him: Nice Mercedes!
Me: Thank you Sir!
Him: Why do you have an AMG logo on the back?
Me: Because it's an AMG...
Him: AMG doesn't make an SLK
Me: They did. Look at the quad tips and beefy brakes. I can show you the engine if you'd like.
Him: That's dumb. Why would they drop a motor like that in this car. Seems like a waste.
Me: Well thanks for the compliment, but I've got to go.

I took the nozzle out and drove off. Still confused as to where this guy gets his information.

He probably wasn't much of a car enthusiast. I've had people come up to me saying there 's no such thing as a srt-6 when I drove my cousin's car...gotta love the world we live in

It takes a certain type of person to walk up to a stranger and tell them that something doesn't exist, when it's sat right in front of them!

Look at that. A european version of the SRT-6. I had a US SRT-6, but didn't tell people it was an ///AMG and definitely didn't badge it as such.

I can't deal with people like that! I would have just said something like...."Thanks for all the information Einstein"! But with all due respect, it wouldn't be because you live in Tennessee would it? (Just kidding)

Yea... Why would AMG drop a powerful motor into a small/light car? That's crazy! I think the proper response to his "AMG doesn't make an SLK" is to simply not say anything and pop the hood next time.

I hate filling up. It's the only time when I'm near my car for multiple minutes and completely exposed to the public. I love quick good looking cars, but not the attention that comes with them. I do my best to be a good brand ambassador though.

I have larger intake tubes going to the back of the motor so no engine cover and I don't think most people know what a V8 looks like anymore. Mercedes isn't known for making pretty motors.

True that, with a few exceptions. The M102 16V engine is lovely, with those long-tube headers. Likewise the 3.0-liter six in the original 300SL, and the M119 V8. But the more modern ones, not so much.
