For many, owning a car like a Mercedes C240 is enough of a confidence booster to help a person with social and sexual issues function in society as a normal human being. It's a car that can make passersby swoon with envy and think the owner actually made something out of him or her self. But every so often, there comes a person who thinks differently and would rather be remembered for something other than for just one drive by. Meet David Ngo, a tuner from Arcadia, CA, and the owner of this heavily modified Mercedes C240. To him, leaving a car like this stock is as wasteful as a fully clothed, drunk college girl during Spring Break. That's why he more or less modified every single part of his C240, including the entire engine setup, making people not only swoon for it but collectively scream, "What the f*#k?!" when it rolls down the street.

David's addiction to tuning the Mercedes began after making some small modifications. "The car was never meant to become a heavily modified show vehicle," explained David. "My intentions were to leave the car stock, but once I got rims and an exhaust, the ball kept rolling." And roll it did, to upward of $55,000 worth of modifications -- at least. You see, David lost count at $55K and didn't bother to bring his abacus out for some primordial calculations. Instead, he kept spending the dough, which is one of the biggest reasons you still haven't won a first-place car-show trophy.
