The Hammer

From Petrolicious – For three decades, this six liter family-friendly juggernaut has been pinning drivers in seats while ruthlessly smashing Saturday errands, earning the nickname, “The Hammer.” See the behind the scenes gallery and read more about this 1987 Mercedes-Benz AMG Hammer Wagon at http://petro.li/AMGHammer
