MB Conversions: Family Cars For People With More Money Than Sense

I know what you're thinking: How can something so wrong feel so utterly, completely, and unflinchingly wrong?

Via Jalopnik, here's a shoutout to the Mazda5 crowd, the wise folks who, when they think of dropping six figures for something, expect it to come with either a mortgage or a diploma, not a cupholder [or, say, power rear sunshades.]

First up: a 2000 Mercedes E320 which has been converted into a pickup truck at a cost of over $100,000, can now be yours for less than $30K. 16,000 miles. With an ROI like that, my guess is it belonged to a pro athlete who just went on waivers.

Meanwhile, in Austria, someone turned an S-class into a station wagon. The nicest thing I can say about it is that it's not for sale.
