My daughter was asking me the other day if MB made a diesel convertible, specifically a roadster. I said the nearest they came in diesel was the 300 CD. Seems to me I do remember an outfit out of Atlanta or Virginia that "converted" 1974-198X two door MBs into convertibles by, of course, cutting the top off and custom installing a convertible canvas top. I do remember seeing this done to a 500SEC.
I'm thinking with the increasing cost of gas and the growing demand for bio-diesel, packaged with an improved diesel sedan engine (2005 CDI), the time might be right for a two seat rag top diesel.
I'm also wondering if converting a 300CD is feasible. What say you?
