Today, I'm going to showcase another bad decision, as I'm celebrating 1 year of owning my 2007 Mercedes-Benz S600 V12 biturbo. I purchased this car -- which I named the Silver Elephant -- terminally broken for $4,500. In the video, I detail the saga of bringing the Silver Elephant back to life -- and its funky features. This written article focuses more on my crazy purchasing strategy and my impressions of V12 ownership.
