Mercs used to be great - well built and reliable. Now they have reduced the quality of build and the reliability. They are pimp mobiles for corporate wannabes - accountants, lawyers and bankers. A British gentleman drives a Bristol, a Morgan, TVR, Lotus, an old MGB (e.g. Tom Mahon) or even a pre-BMW Mini Cooper. But Your Grace, none of those have a back seat worth mentioning, let alone much trunk space, apart from one of the Bristols, which must be 200,000 pounds. Where does the British gentleman put his children, his groceries, and, perhaps most importantly to him, his dogs? Or does he not spawn, cook, or hunt?
