Poser Award goes to...

I saw this over on MBWorld and had to post it here for my fellow SLK owners...

This one is especially painful to look at.



Ok take a deep breath and let's see how many violations there are:



Front half of the car... dear God... all I want for Christmas is eBay chrome parts.

Needs more AMG badges. Perhaps one on the hood and one on each door. Oh, and a lighted one on a plexi wind screen.

awwwwwwwww give the guy a break.............. I know it hurts but at least he loves his SLK.................

A car should look good in it's own right without any BLING on it at all!, whilst I like the chrome fins, I ain't gonna fit any on my 172, keep it as the factory intended to a degree unless you pay for the option

The front doesn't look that bad in my opinion, poser yes, but ugly? not really in my opinion.
Back is funny and ridiculous though.

Edit. The front definitley looks odd, a mixture of r170, r171, and 65 black series. :P

Maybe he used to work in Pontiac's styling division...they LOVED sticking non-functional doodads on their cars.

... There's someone with, I kid you not, about 50 of those diamond-looking stick-on side vents on their mini-van... up the A-pillar, on the doors, on the back, etc, around town. I think each of those side vents increase horsepower by about 10.

Ha Ha, Come on, give the guy (gal) a break. At least he/she loves his SLK.

Still needs more vents!!!! I think each vent adds at least 10 more HP's.

I'd rather look at a MB poser being an MB poser rather than another brand being an MB poser hope that wasn't confusing

LOL! Back in the early 80s my neighbor had a Ford Granada coupe with "450SLC" badge on rear and the stand up star on the hood...
