Murdercedes going to Indianapolis

Murdercedes going to Indianapolis

The 3rd Annual Mad Max Run is happening this weekend, and I’m heading there with the Murdercedes!

Is the car finished? Heck no. Is a project car ever finished? But it’s driveable (crossing fingers) and I really want to go somewhere fun with it. I plan to take pics and/or video along the way, but we’ll see how that pans out.

So wish me luck! And if you’re heading there too, give me a shout.

Murdercedes

What do you get when you turn a perfectly fine, rust-free 1983 Mercedes Benz 300SD into a wasteland wagon? You get the Murdercedes, of course!

This car is my constant work-in-progress as I get time, but it’s still very early in its development. Future plans include a hood stack for the diesel engine, a home-made roof rack, a custom fabricated rear bumper complete with tow hitch bar, and anything else I can find to weld on from the scrap yard.

Needs more chains and pointy things!
I actually tossed that fender into a bonfire for that effect.

This car started off as such an innocent-looking luxury sedan. Poor thing didn't see it coming.
