    Looks like they finally did away with those pesky tires for this new Mercedes.

    The Monteverdi Sierra thread on BaT really shows how much that site has degenerated. Not one comment shows the slightest bit of knowledge about the car, or cars in general (no more than a quick web search will get you). Just a bunch of old tossers trying to be funny. And failing. It seems like only a couple years ago that the majority of comments came from people with actual experience in the listed car. Now the same 5 guys keep repeating the same 5 jokes on every post.

    I would drive the hell out of that Hongqui sedan! And I would remove the little horizontal chrome bars from the back, because they look poor. Otherwise, it's all good - even the very Asian take on wood panel.

    Didn't Monteverdi make fancy IH Scouts? I wanna see one of those!

      You triggered a memory for me, and I believe you're right. I couldn't find any documentation or images when I searched before. "Before International folded, the rather obscure Swiss luxury brand Monteverdi made luxury SUVs based on the Scout – the thinly-disguised Sahara, and more bespoke Safari. These were popular among wealthy Italians who took them skiing in the alps, as well as Saudi oil barons who blasted along open desert. The idea of an upmarket SUV was rather ahead of its time and the International provided a solid base, but the Monteverdis are, of course, another story." http://ranwhenparked.net/2012/07/21/international-harvester-scout-1961-1980/
