Default My MB powered Hot Rod project

Powered by the 1990 MB 500E V8 from my Mom's car.

Building it to honor my Mom.

This is how she'll look once done

Your dream car looks beautiful, and I'm sure your Mom would be proud.

Still, I'm a bit sad that a 500E was decommissioned. There were only about 1,500 of those cars in the entire US market. That was a fairly rare and collectible Mercedes Benz. And 1990 was the lowest production year for them. Only 46 produced worldwide.

My Dad wrecked it so it was hot rod or junk yard.

That car looks awesome ... I hope that you start a build thread and keep us posted on the progress that you're making. I for one, would love to see your project as it comes together.

Very cool project I think it's safe to assume you won't see another at a cruise night. Nice tribute to your Mom.
