People in the comments of the video were questioning if it's a fake video or not (cart being driven by remote control, etc.).  Apparently it IS real, and her name is Rambo.  Been driving all kinds of stuff for years.

I needed a rest from cleaning up after my dad. So we went south to mother in law
 i lay here browsing the net and found this  thought it was hilirious.
Was going to drive the Galaxie down here but the fuelprices now are crazy.
after  Hitler2.0 attacked Ukraine
So i borrowed my mothers Mercedes 500SEC use half the fuel of the Galaxie
and it needs some exercise.
Brakes was dragging, idled at 1200 rpm was in kickdownmode all the time. Cant send mom to the store with a car that shift to
fourth gear at 110 mph
A few hours of troubleshooting and repair it was back to normal, Exercised the calipers,new pads,new switch for the kickdown
that was stuck in down position. lubed the auxilary airvalve and chucked up some graphite inpregnated nylon in the
lathe and made a bushing for the throtle linkage. Still to high idle when its warm probaly have to buy new valve
But of we went ,first to wifes hometown.....

in to the sunset



Next day we drowe ower the mountains



Better weather on the otherside of the mountains (and a 911 Porsche we soon passed ;))



And down south it is summer

110 MPH at 3400 RPM? That's some serious overdrive.
What goes fast doesn't go fast long'
What goes fast takes your money with it.
So I'm slow & broke, what went wrong?

If we drive 190 k on the highway here for very long it becomes Her Majesty's Mercedes to be auctioned rather than mom's.

I can't imagine your gas is more expensive. We pay $2.30 a litre for premium, $2.37 for diesel now and that has supposedly gone up again today

That monkey drives better than people do around here!

Todays gasprice in my hometown is 2.20 US dollar per litre. The tax was lowered monday but prices went up today
its a price rollercoaster .  Were the photo is taken it is a region with a area of 55000 squarekilometres with 2 cops
and one cop car on duty after 4 o clock so the risque they have a speedtrap in the middle of the wilderness at
8 o clock is less than slim. Where do you live, Canada or Australia when you write Dollars and Her majesty`s ?

Still on vacation, we went to the Cherry valley with brother in law and his wife where the wild cherrys blossom now

Parked under some massiv fir trees



Wild cherry trees in the background



Had a picknic down by a small stream and made coffe over open fire and relaxed in the sun. Money cant buy this
