Synopsis

This is the biography of the Mercedes Ponton (the 180 model) which became a pop icon of the pre-war Lebanon and witnessed the transformations on the Lebanese scene.

This is the History of Lebanon seen through automobiles labeled locally: “Marcedes”.

Marcedes: the story of a car, the story of a family, the story of a country.
