Crowbaring a Maybach

6 posts in this topic

This car sure looks like it's built like sh!t: The 'sheetmetal' sounds like pie tins, looks absolutely paper thin & a piece snaps off totally unlike any metal I've ever worked. You'd think for $300K (or whatever) you could at least get some old world quality sheetmetal instead of reconstituted soda cans, but f**k no. Is anything new worth what you pay for it anymore???

I guess I don't understand, why pry on the damn car anyway? If metal is stresses repeatedly in the same location, duh, it's going to snap.

What happened to the car in the first place, and why whack on it?

Looks like it side-swiped something, and mangled the fender-to-door gap enough that the door wouldn't open enough to get inside. The genius with the Snap-On crowbars was trying to force the trailing edge of the fender out so the leading edge of the door could pivot inward and the guy could get in. WTF he was doing going thru the bottom edge of the door is beyond me.

One argument against ever-tighter panel gaps. :wink:

Why the ass couldn't climb in the passenger side instead of watch the idiocy is beyond me, but then again... I can't explain the purchase to begin with.

Ya, I gotcha on all those counts.

I mean, that ridiculous Maybach is nothing more than a tarted-up S-Class that appears to have had its exterior design penned by plagiarizing Koreans/Chinese/Japanese/Rest of Asia & etc.
