RE: Is this for real? Someone says they have a 280SEL AMG.
I have been surfing the web. There is no, NO mention of that model anywhere, anyplace. This is what "The Razz" (Benzworld member) said about his car - By his spelling ability I think the guy might have been duped
into thinking he was buying an AMG. Hmm...?
"It doesn't have the AMG on the valve cover. But she is a screamer. Most of the emissions equipment was removed. It was I guess a lower end AMG model since it doesn't have lether seats, as well as not much lether inside at all. Tho it does have heated front seats.
The car was origanly sold to an older couple in Az. ( hence the posable non-lether seats ) The second owner was a friend of the family that took the car over when the older couple couldn't drive it anymore. That person had no respect for the car, the cloth seats are THRASHED, from what I could only guess as being WET MUDDY DOGS. When he moved to Idaho he had most of the emissions equipment removed and cut the O2 wire completly out. I'm still having some idle problems, But I'm getting warmer on fixing that. Between the distributer, the weard idle screw next to the block, and the fuel mix alan key in the Plenum/fuel injector combo thingie...
IF and when I get a job, I'm going to replace the seats with lether ( LOVE LETHER ) replace all the wood trim, replace the dash ( cracked as all get out ) the lether door trim. I'm going to have the car totaly repainted ( same color, I LOVE THAT COLOR ) Going to have the origanal rims ( still on the car ) re-done. I'm looking to prity much restore the car, to better than origanal condition.
The other day My son and I got the front 2 windows working ( sooo haaapy ) he was a big help, handing me everything I didn't need at the times I didn't need them.. He's the BESTEST helper in the world.
I may see if the dealership that shipped and sold the car is still in busness. I want to get more history on the car ( and I have the phone number too )..
And to Gary, Your Welcome, I'm glad I could help.
To JDC1244a,She's a mule when she doesn't like somthing. Tho she will insure it once it's got plattes, since all we have to do is drop covrage on the van.
To Jessie, I know you were joking about the devorce."
