The G-Wagens of yesteryear were little like their modern, elegant offspring. The old fogies were raw beasts better suited for an excursion than a trip to Target. If you want a little of that rugged G-Class history in your driveway, you’re in luck. Hitting the auction block at the Auburn Fall 2018 RM Sotheby’s auction is this 1984 Mercedes-Benz 240 GD in all its sparse glory. The vintage SUV packs a 4-cylinder diesel, so you’re going to have to remember you want the green pump at the gas station. Get that right and you’ll enjoy speeds of up to 70 mph, which is a steady enough speed to keep your jerry cans and equipment strapped to the roof. The highlight for us is the olive green paint job, which makes this thing look like it spent time in the service.

We’re sick of the quarantine beard, so we’re going clean shaven again. We’re doing it with a Henson razor. Precision-machined out of aluminum by a boutique aerospace manufacturer, this razor feels and works better than anything else on the market. It presents the blade at such a precise angle you can barely feel the shave. It’s uncanny. Most guys (and gals, they have a women’s razor) prefer drugstore cartridge razors because they’re plug ‘n play. Honestly, the Henson design ensures perfect positioning every time, and it’s cheaper and better for the environment long-term. Switch today.
