Only in the South: Chevy Powered Mercedes Dragster


Just when we thought we’d seen it all this big-block Mercedes dragster comes along and trumps the Coffin Hot Rod from the previous post. This Mercedes started life as a humble early 80’s coupe but the owner had plans……. A Ford 9″ rear end and Chevy Big Block V8 give this Merc its grunt. Outrageous rear wing and wheelie bar attempt to keep it on the drag strip. We can’t imagine the time put into something like this or for that matter why that time was put in but we’re sure it was a labor of love. One thing is for sure, you’d be the only person at the Saturday night drag races in a Mercedes! Find this one just outside Atlanta on Craigslist.
