When I was in the "Grey Market" in the 80's (when I was in High school) we used to rip from Newport Beach, Cali to LAX in a Grand Wagoneer to pick up 500Sl's and ferraris we had flown in from Europe. The Wagoneer was the thirstiest vehicle I ever encountered, and literally spewed unburned fuel out the exhaust!!! Very comfy SUV, but poorly engineered fuel system...
