Ah forget it!  Found what I needed to know. A search found a thread at benzworld. It's a fake.

Some great pics there, worth a look.  Nomada bursts the bubble on the myth and there's a great avatar that I haven't seen for some time.

I actually have that picture in it's "unmodified" W116 form as my wallpaper. Sort of hoping my 300SD looks that good when it's done!
