The Photographer's Ride II by notbland The Photographer's Ride II by notbland
1992 Mercedes 300CE Sportline Coupe.
New Orleans, Louisiana. May 11, 2008.

Generally I don't post test/WIP shots, but this test image became quite something else as I worked on it. Anyway, my first usable rig shot, after constructing it last month; haven't had any decent car to test it on 'til now.

A lot of you have asked in the past what car I drive and if I would ever put it up here. I posted a shot of my Durango some time ago as an easter egg of sorts, but now I'm rocking a different car for now, so I figured I'd throw an image on DA for you all.

Oh, and apologies on the absence. Been out of it for a while. Though I did get a wicked crazy lens for my birthday on the third (hence the polls I posted), so I'll be busting that out for some future shoots with some cool cars. Stay tuned.

I bet driving on that car feels like gliding over butter. Those old Mercedes' have great seats and suspension.

I'm trying to remember when Mercedes-Benz switched from the straight-6 to the V-6. I think it was in the late '80s, but I'm not sure.

Straight-6 and rear drive are the last reasons I have for being a BMW fan. God, have they ever been Bungled. :(

Bangled, bungled, it's all the same... :hmm:

Clueless Chris is gone, but he left his disciples to carry on. :(
