Post Grateful New Member: 1986 560SEC


My wife Susan found this car for sale on the side of the road for $1800. I have been looking for a car to restore for a while now and I could not believe that one of my most favorite cars was just rotting away less than a mile from home. At first I was skeptical but after checking the car for rust, (minimal) or obvious accident damage (none that I could find) and owner"customization", (none that I could find), I decided to contact the owner-talked him down to $1300. The car needs lots of work, but that is the whole idea!!! I am grateful to my wife and for the friendly experts on this forum. My hat's off to all!
