Jennifer writes to us: Saw this at a hotel in Virginia. It's not a great photo but it says "DTH TRAP" - I used to have a similar car, so I can sympathize.
You know, I drove a car like this throughout my high school days (However, it wasn't a Mercedes). The air conditioning broke one week into owning it, and the windows would only go down if you stood outside of the car with your hands on opposite sides of the window and forced it down. The seat belt would randomly unhinge and fly off. The transmission would frequently stop working in the middle of driving. I had to drive it in reverse to the mechanic once, because that is the only gear that worked. It's like it was trying to kill me. I'm surprised it didn't light itself on fire at some point.
Anyone else ever drive a Death Trap?
