"Merging Mercedes mystique with a Prelude personality." Could this be the origin of cooked rice?

I am a lazy bastard, so I'll let you read the images for the contents.

Congratulations, you managed to make a 82 Subaru.

No wait, that's the BimmaRoo, but they ran out of (redacted substance) before that build got greenlit. The mere concept of the Alpha-Omega sobered up half the staff.


Accel is not compensating me for my lazy cropping. However, "doing it correctly" is a proper business plan that many companies these days do not adhere to. But I digress.


And if you don't want to go to that much effort, you can cut out the coupon send your credit card information to a Florida PO Box for membership in a club for cheap Mercedes.

What could go wrong?


Irony: A first-gen Prelude unmodified probably is more sought out than the Mercedes M/T was trying to mimic.
