That looks....scary. In any case it would make road-head much more dangerous.

I would never drive it anyway. The future for cars, if there is one, is auto-navigation. The idea that anyone can get into a deadly self-propelled machine, and put them self at the mercy of all the idiots on their phones, and other distractions, is not viable.

Does it still have an ash-tray and beer bottle holder?

Jesus, they want to take away our joy of driving from us. Hell no, I wouldn't drive this, I don't even want an automatic, let alone something with no steering wheel. It does look interesting and I would like to try it out, but that is it.

As soon as can get my hands on a few thousands of Euros, I'll get this little baby.

I want to drive, not to be driven... I like having more manual handles in the car than I actually need. Gives me a sense of complicated machinery.

What's not real? The Merc? It does look unreal, but it is real. This GAZ69? Oh hell, it's real all right, a true Russian terrain vehicle. There was one in Croatia for only 2000-3000 Euros. The best oldtimer I have ever seen.

Now, back to this Mercedes, I have found another problem, with it. Actually a few. First I can not have one hand on the wheel, the other out of the window. It has a window, but it has no steering wheel, so my favorite hillbilly pose is not possible. The other thing is I will not be able hang my air refreshener inside, it just does not fit in...

Google's self driving cars are legal out here in Cali, and there have been no accidents yet.
