Gotcha! I hope I'm not naive and honestly wouldn't trade this 1997 C-280 Sport for anything. I was just curious about the term and had never heard it before. I'm not sure that even if things were okeydokey I'd buy via eBay!

Thanks for the reply,

Good question, I've never heard the term either. Why don't you post the eBay link so some of us can take a look?

I believe it's been answered by several...and I do believe most of them have been drinking...something stronger than beer.

I'd like to now close this thread...

Thanks to all, and good driving...
