Most idiotic 6.9 video ever made

This one takes the cake.  Check it out and see how many absurdities you can find beyond the fact that it isn't a 6.9 at all. Happy viewing!

Clapped out car with tons of rust, but hey "it's structural sound". Hilarious. He even mentions the hydro controls on the dash that are not even there...clueless.

That's the first time I've ever seen a long wheelbase W116 with manual windows in back, though the regulators would be the same as the short wheelbase. It looks like they added power windows to the front at some point? Maybe someone was making a 6.9 clone. Still, how you do not know there is no HPF suspension?

Even if the 6.9 emblem on the trunk is superfluous, it at least has some goodies like orthopedic front seats, rear headrests, heated seats, and... no air conditioning.
