The car is in park?

I would also suggest that the air intake cowl shouldn't be that long (running the length of the screen) when shot from this angle?

Would a Pagoda really take up so much space? It's wheels overlap the W126 roof, and doors, but I didn't think they were that wide nor the wheelbase that long. I also thought there's be more camber to the front wheels on full rebound?

And what's the giant A-frame behind the orange van? Looks like the type they put on utes.

The Pagoda appears to be floating above the W126 and not resting on its roof.

I hope it's photoshopped. At least no Finnies in there but I can see a Finnie rear panel so hopefully they aren't buried under all the others.

Also I call BS because there is no way a 190SL would be lying around in a wrecking yard anymore... :bs:

No :bs: involved, but a few Finnie speedos died for the cause.
