Gunnar Brustad, who owns Norwegian bus line Brustad Busstrafikk, went with his son to the Setra Customer Center without knowing that the new ComfortClass 500 unit waiting for him was very special.

Mercedes-Benz 600 Owned by Saddam Hussein Surfaces

Ferdinand Marcos, Fidel Castro, Pol Pot, and Saddam Hussein. What do these guys have in common? They all had a Mercedes-Benz 600 to drive. Zac Estrada over at Jalopnik wrote about  the Mercedes-Benz 600 owned by Hussein, perhaps among the most infamous personalities in modern history.
