Classic Cruiser - Mercedes-Benz 350SL #JapaneseRides

Mercedes-Benz' are fast. put your foot down and they haul you forward at great haste. Turn the steering and they continue forward at great haste. But despite their massive size, weight, obnoxious presence and generally bad handling compared to their peers, even they make the occasionally desirable vehicle. My favourite is the 350SL, and this example with a sorted suspension and big wheels was the perfect example of the timeless shape, stance and beauty of the only Benz I'd ever choose to own. A classic coupe for cruising in comfort.

First was the M5.5 in the video above:

And now this massive M8.5 that struck 590km deep, south of Japan:

Add to that a bunch of new volcanic eruptions, including volcanic activity at Mt. Hakone which has been dormant for 700 years and a pattern of quakes and eruptions all around the pacific this past week and it's pretty clear that the ring of fire is burning bit hotter than usual right now. I hope things continue at this pace and all the pressure continues to release itself regularly and with minimal force than all in one go, like back in 2011.

Japan, more often than not, is just a regular place. It just doesn't give the west an ethnocentric hard-on like jerk-off game shows and kyoto temples.

While it's only a Mondial, A classic Ferrari is a classic Ferrari, and what better place to park a classic Fezzer than the infamous Shibuya Scramble.
