Here's my new daily driver and a V12 engine update!

I love AMG and had to save a very neglected yet ultra-rare Mercedes E55 AMG wagon. Only 193 of these super wagons were imported to the U.S and this one was driven into the ground and has 232,000 miles. In this video, you'll watch a complete 5-week transformation from fixing rust holes to paintwork, mechanical repairs, transmission issues, paint correcting, and much more. Sit back, grab a pop and enjoy the show!

    I’m getting on in years and won’t be able to follow my car dreams. I have one-owner (me) 1986 300E with the rare 5-speed. The color is desert tan over palomino MBTex. The ODO died at 299k miles fifteen or more years ago. I was rear ended in December, 1997, and have never been happy with the repair that was done. I have a ton of contemporaneous documentation including an AMG catalog and a personal letter to me from the local AMG dealer with a complete price list. My plan was to upgrade the ignition to coil-per-plug and the fuel injection to sfi. I have a M104 fuel rail, a trigger disk and distributor cap replacement with Hall effect sensor, throttle position sensor. I also have a W124 limited slip kit for the diff. The roadside emergency kit has never been unwrapped. I also have a rolling parts car with 5-speed. The A/C was upgraded to the better compressor and R134 refrigerant. I’m not going to lie. There is some rust.

    These videos have convinced me not to buy a German car, ever. If I ever did own one, I would make sure to trade it in, a week before the warrantee expires. I used to work on German printers for my job and a printer from Japan made from some sheet metal and a lot of plastics, when made by a German has a base plate made from a 2 inch thick Aluminum casting with all sorts of machine work done by a CAD/CAM machine. I had to replace a switch in that printer which made it necessary to completely disassemble the printer. That AMG has parts which could be cast in one piece, but are assemblies of 20 parts.

    I would highly suggest trying Meguiars Ultimate compound and Wax. That stuff is amazing, and worked better than the “professional” compounds on the black car i used to own. Took off the scratches, oxidation, water, and sap stains from a car that sat for years under a tree in no time. I have a small toolbox filled with different compounds and that stuff worked way better, way faster, just with a wool pad. The paint was so bad i was convinced the entire car was going to need to be wet sanded.. it took EVERYTHING out. Highly recommended. For great, cheap and nice smelling dashboard cleaner that actually helps REPEL dust - instead of a bunch of silicone that just just traps and collects it - try Lemon Scent Pledge.. you’d never expect it to work so well. That wagon needs some tinted windows... if nothing else it’ll help preserve the dash and all the leather.
