    Put some wide 16'' penta alloys on it, someone could make a sharp looking car out of it.

    If it were mine, I'd take the badge, wheels and bodykit off and sell them separately, and tidy the car up and sell as a wedding car/practical classic. As it it it looks wrong, IMHO....not that I'm in any way an expert. Does anyone disagree - I'd be interested to hear the other side... does anyone think it could be a real AMG? Did they even exist?

    The body kit is definitely not AMG and not sure what is but it's quite frightening.

    I quite agree. I'm addicted to mine, and it's not even been a week, or even been on the road yet...

    I'm going to make the restoration as 'right' as I can. Time and especially money are not on my side, but even so I am determined to do the best by the car to do a sympathetic restoration, and bring it back to its former glory.
