Ok.. I know this is a second gen board but like many of you.. I am asking for opinions on something other then a Camaro... The Mercedes is my friends car. It was involved in a nasty accident on Sat. afternoon. Thanks god he pretty much ok with the exception of headache, neck and back pain. My friend had slowed to maybe 5-10 mph (he was almost at a complete stop) since the Honda in front of him decided to turn into a used car lot to check out a vette they saw. My friend was struck from behind and in turn the Mercedes hit the Honda and totaled their car as well and spun them around. My friend said that when he looked back during breaking, that the truck was still a ways back but looked to be coming up fast and he said they had plenty ofroom to change over to the other lane... Well obeviously they didn't.. I said to him it looks to me they were doing a solid 60-65 mph.. The speed limit in the area the accident happened is 45 mph. It is a 4 lane roadway. The Officer I talked to mentioned that they give ALOT of tickets thru that area because so many folks speed thru there. He said it still does not seem to slow people down that much. He said alot of the tickets are for for 55 to 70 mph thru the area where this happened. I would like your "Opinions" as to how fast you think the guys that hit the Mercedes and caused the Mercedes to hit the Honda, were going to cause this much damage. Neither the Mercedes or the Honda were moved from when they came to rest after inpact.. (except the guys truck) Here is what is left of the Mercedes.. Keep in mind it's a 1983 300SD Turbo Diesel.. This thing is about as close to a sherman tank as you can get.. lol. If you notice.. the guys grill from his pickup is up under the rear glass!!! there is metal damage all the way up to the rear window trim.. I still can't beleive that it didn't shatter like the Honda's did.. But then again this is the most solid car I have ever riden in.. a car this solid and this heavy and he STILL got 30 MPG! Front end damage The Honda's damage.. remember.. the guy that hit the Mercedes had to be going fast enough to total TWO cars..
