WTB -- Mercedes Coupe

I'm afraid this is going to be the Benzworld forum equivalent of a "Dear Abby" letter.

I'm working in Afghanistan but live in Dallas. Last Saturday was my 17 year old daughter's birthday. With unbelievable fortune, I found a 300CD on eBay for a bargain and bought it.

My daughter just finished driving school and doesn't know a 450SEL from a Kia! But she fell in love with the car as soon as she saw the pictures. I'm returning from Afghanistan on Sept 1st and was going to drive the car in.

Then, with unbelievable fortune, the car got hit and is totaled. Quite frankly, I suspect suicide. Virginia cars have a difficult time thinking of life in Dallas and, in a moment of desperate confusion, I think the car pulled out in front of another. It appears to have been a painless death. It was hit on the driver's side.

I can't do anything for the car, but I'm trying to do something for my grieving daughter. Does anyone know of a Coupe for sale at a reasonable price? Something suitable for a first car, let alone a first Mercedes?

If so, feel free to write me in my forum mail or my personal address: LarryJHall@Hotmail.Com

Distraught Dallas Dad

Dear Dallas, Dear Dallas, you have no complaint ...
You are what you are and you ain't what you ain't
So listen up buster and listen up good
Stop wishin' for bad luck and knockin' on wood.

Good luck on your search

RE: WTB -- Mercedes Coupe

I just joined this site so for all I know you've found a live-&-well 300CD. I do have one I'm finally letting out of my steely grip, so if you are still seeking let me know. I recently listed it on eBay & it didn't sell; I was surprised because another very similar sold at $3050 a day or 2 before & my reserve was (slightly) lower.
