  1. At about 24:30 when it lists 4 types of Mercedes it shows a 300D and a 300SD and both are “Turbodiesel Sedans” What’s the difference? Just curious, I tried looking online and I can’t find much

  2. Binge watched all 10 episodes in 2 days! Fantastic production, extremely interesting sit down overall that I can’t recommend highly enough. I would argue that even if you’re not all that interested in the mafia you will find interesting insights into human nature, society, history etc throughout this conversation. If you are all that interested in the mafia then you are definitely in for a treat and it is a must buy!

    You really can’t get this kind of thing anywhere else and I’m very grateful to all involved for making it happen!

  3. As someone whose family was very friendly with a lot of tough guys from the Giordano Crime Family, (St. Louis) along w/their allies, the Syrian Mob, led by my grandfather’s tight buddy, ‘Horseshoe’ Jimmy Michaels, by way of my family being a stronghold family in the mobbed-up Pipefitters Local #562, St. Louis… This really, really takes me back, & the entertainment value is off the charts! I can even remember when the Old Man Giordano died & Jimmy lost his Cosa Nostra protection… Wasn’t long til he was blown up w/a car bomb off of Reavis Barracks Rd. Also, the President of the union, also my grandfather’s friend, Ed Steska, was murdered while on a phone line traced to a made guy in the Giordano Family. So much emotion being brought back up with this!

    About the Mercedes Benz 300D & 300SD.
    The difference is that the 300D was like an E-class and the SD was an S-class, it was larger and had different chasis.
