Boxy and Beautiful: 2004 Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG

Boxy and Beautiful: 2004 Mercedes-Benz G55 AMGTear up the urban jungle in this high-powered SUV!The Mercedes-Benz G-Class was born from a rugged, off-road military truck, but today's versions of this legendary SUV are more likely to terrify unsuspecting sports cars than to traverse rugged terrain. That's especially the case when it comes to the AMG-tuned G-Class SUVs, which is what Dallas Motor Collection is offering up for sale with this lovely 2004 Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG.Although the G-Wagen dates back to 1979 and the second-gen model went into production in 1990, the U.S. market didn't get the G-Class until 2002. At the time, the G55 AMG represented the pinnacle for this SUV's performance with a 354-horsepower, 5.4-liter supercharged V-8 under the hood allowing for acceleration times of 0-60 mph in 5.2 seconds. The G-Class may have had a throwback design, but it was ahead of its time when it came to performance. And those side-mounted quadruple exhaust outlets leave no guesswork that this was the ultimate performance SUV of its time.The best part about AMGs is opening the hood and seeing the small plaque on the engine cover, which was signed by the craftsman who hand built the engine. Mercedes-AMG continues this impressive trend today. As the G-Class continues to age, it's getting more difficult to find these in such great shape with low mileage. This particular G55 AMG shows just under 100,000 miles on the odometer, and the interior looks as clean as it did back in 2004.This is a super-clean example of a 15-year-old G-Class, and it's hard to beat that classic look, luxurious interior and powerful engine. This G55 even comes with all of the original documentation and two key fobs. Don't miss your chance to own one of the fastest off-road SUVs ever created!Read more about Mercedes-Benz:\- Mercedes-Benz G-Class At 40: Off-Roading the German Way\- All-Terrain Benz: 1965 Mercedes-Benz Unimog

Indonesia prays on anniversary of 2004 Boxing Day tsunami

Indonesia prays on anniversary of 2004 Boxing Day tsunamiThousands prayed at mass graves Wednesday to mark the 14th anniversary of the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami, one of the worst natural disasters in history, even as aid workers raced to help victims of the latest killer wave to hit Indonesia. The annual memorial came after the long-buried remains of dozens of Boxing Day tsunami victims were found last week in Aceh province, which was devastated by the 9.1-magnitude “megathrust” earthquake. Nearly 170,000 people died in disaster-prone Indonesia when the quake struck Aceh, a predominantly Muslim province in the northern tip of Sumatra island, sparking massive waves that also slammed into coastal areas as far away as Somalia.

Oil set for strongest third quarter since 2004, Iraq hints at OPEC extensionBy Amanda Cooper LONDON (Reuters) – Oil rose was on course for its largest third-quarter gain in 13 years as prices rose on Wednesday after the Iraqi oil minister said that OPEC and its partners are considering extending or deepening output cuts aimed at reducing a global supply glut. Brent crude futures were up 48 cents at $ 55.62 a barrel by 1020 GMT, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures rose 54 cents to $ 50.02. “An improving macroeconomic backdrop should spur oil demand growth over the next couple of quarters, and if OPEC increases its adherence to production cuts, higher prices will come,” ANZ Research said in a note.
