WTB 190 or similar

Im looking to buy a 190 or something similar to that but I really want a 5spd. The problem Im running into is that I can only find automatics and that just isn't gonna work. If any one has anything let me know cause the buick I've been driving since my GTI got totalled sucks.

Here's one that needs a bit of work, but you might be able to get it pretty cheap.

The only other model you might find with a stick is an earlier (1986-1989) 300E. They're even rarer than 190 manual models, though.

RE: WTB 190 or similar

You can also keep an eye on http://www.craigslist.org/ and ebay. Just keep an eye for one in your state and be ready to pounce on it when it showes up.

I don't know if you are in a hurry, but they are out there.

RE: WTB 190 or similar

I'm selling a 1985 190E 2.3 5spd :)

Located in Seattle. She needs a bit of body work -- runs excellent, but was driving down the highway and someone cut my dad off so he ended up with a minor fender bender on the front end. Will need a new hood and maybe new headlights, but that's all. Instead of fixing it he bought a new Benz, and rather than have this car sit around he'd prefer to sell it to someone who really wants it.

$950 and it's yours! I'll post photos and details tomorrow.
