New Member with (new to me) 500SEC


My name is D. A. Slone. Growing up I was called by my initials pronounced DAZ.

Later D.A.Sl became Dazzle and the one came along as One which is now my on-line poker name DazzleOne.

Make life easy and call me Daz. OK?.

My new car is so new it is still on the truck. Just bought it off eBay ... check out eBay Item number: 200329279063 while still on the site.

1983 Mercedes 500 SEC Lorinser NO RESERVE ...

The pics shown in the eBay ad are from early 2004 when the Seller first bought the car. I will be submitting updated pictures and posts on what I find as I restore it. Here is a current one of the instrument display showing the current miles. Interesting to see that the speedometer says DECI - MOTORSPORTS. Anyone know what DECI stands for?

This site gave me a lot of info, as a guest, while I was checking out this car. I figure to give back as I unravel this grey market Lorinser and post my findings.
In any case ... at $3383 purchase price how badly can I get hurt. The aluminum trunk lid alone, with the built in spoiler, was what? $2600 in the day?

I don't think I am going to part it out but it is always an option depending on what I find. Get your wish lists ready ... lol
