Humble beginnings ~
In 1966 I bought a Mercedes Benz 300SE Coupe in Germany and on the way to the port of Bremerhaven, the engine blew while racing down the Autobahn (my wife was driving, so at least I had someone to blame). Now what?! I had already played with the thought of dropping a 6.3 engine in the Benz so I got it hauled to AMG and they installed an entire 6.3 drivetrain in the Coupe. And the rest is history…
