Old Mercedes Benzes Never Die, They Just End Up Getting Dissected by George Washington High Students – Auto Shop Class Lives!

Never thought I’d see this – old Mercedes Benz cars parked on the lawn out in front of Geo Wash High in the Outer Richmond, with a grease paint obituary written on the windshield:

Is Auto Shop Class a thing for high schoolers in 2017? Hell to the yes.

I took shop in high school, but that was then and this is now. Generally, guys took shop and gals took typing, or home ec., I think, but there were exceptions. (I should have taken typing instead oh well.)

(What’s sad is that yes, you can keep an old Benz on the road, but it’ll cost you. Imagine if the owners of these rides had opted for something like a 1990 Lexus LS400 – they would have saved money up front and down the road. Oh well.)

Anyway, I says to myself, I says does GW offer shop, and guess what, it does.

These cars have lived, they are dying, but, like Nux, they will live again, in the memories of today’s teens.

    Saw the burgandy one parked in the grass Sunday pointed down hill. As long as parking brake holds true it won’t become a battling ram across Geary.
