Gwagen done in 2005!

MBUSA-DC announced that they will stop production of the Gelaendewagen in 2005 to be replaced by another glorified grocery getter the MLG500...

I should have hung on to my old 280GE SWB. What a bloody shame...

Europa Motors should have never sold the distribution rights for the Gwagen back to Mercedes Benz of North America...that was the beginning of the end in my opinion. If you can find a LWS/SWB from their glory days between 82-88, it will be worth hanging on to. The older vehicles have maintained their value pretty well...
