“For Americans back then, cars from Mercedes-Benz were the epitome of luxury. Anyone who drove an SL in the 1980s was definitely considered rich,” DJ said. And what about the character of the car? The first word that comes to his mind is “snooty” – kind of cool, yet arrogant. Quite the perfect car for the looker of the family, Dandy. That said, villainous J.R. also had good taste, as DJ confirms. He just wanted everything bigger, so he drove various S-Class models, including the W 116 series. His first car was a dark green 280 SE, before he later moved on to a silver-green 450 SEL. The family also owned a silver thistle-coloured 380 SEL.
