    My guess is AMG side skirts. The AMG duck tale is on for sure. But aside from that, it could be anything, I've seen 200D's with AMG side skirts, as well as Hammers.

    Bake an apple pie and treat your neighbor to a slice and a coffee. In Sweden we call it "fika", and strike up a conversation regarding the mystery car.

    I think you're past the pie, yea. I've been to many strange fikas in my days, but none at gunpoint even though I live in a city which has the nickname 'little Chicago' or Swedens Chicago.

    Correct - AMG (or replica) skirts, stock bumper.

    Maybe this would be appropriate!

    "Fika"? If you say that in Germany, it refers to more of a coupling, as in making the beast with two backs, than a gathering, although the beast could have more than two backs, I suppose, but the pie? When I lived in Baltimore, there was a large mechanical contractor called "Fick Brothers". Boy did I get a howl out of that every time I saw one of their trucks.

    If you're worried about getting shot, you might want to stop posting pictures of the guy's house with his address written on the bottom.

    Roll up on Saturday, knock on the door. Never hurt to be in a 124 when doing so...

    Being that westmont was right 'round the corner I'd be Curious!
