Too Much Time on Their Hands?

Here's a Geo Metro with all MB badging to be a wanna be SMART car in Salem Oregon; So maybe it's a Metro-Benz?

He's missing the 18" AMG wheels :-) Cant' believe he even did the window sticker. I think this may have been done in fun, as NO ONE would believe this is an MB or Smart of any sort.

You're right Cold Shot It is a guy I work with & he did it for fun but he does fool a lot of people. He constantly has people coming up to him & commenting on his Mercedes. We have a lot of laughs about it with all the stories he tells of people thinking it's a M-B!

The "993" shows that there are some Porcshe aspirations too.

Out of interest, what make/model is the actual car under all those badges?

oops, that was in the OP, I hadn't realised "geo" was a car brand.

That's a Suzuki Swift in Euro speak, or a Suzuki Cultus, or even a Chevrolet Metro .... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suzuki_Cultus

Does MB not take action against these people? I know a guy who turned an old Rolls Royce into a PickUp truck and they were rather offended, but offered him a brand new pickup to get his off the road (and crushed I assume).
