Oh man...My first Mercedes. I hate to let her go. I don't want to let her go but thank California Smog standards for this. I got it about a year ago. I drive it A LOT! But smog testing is coming up. My best friend owned it before me and he removed all the smog equip. Needless to say, it will NOT pass smog. So I was thinking of driving it to Maine where there are no smog req. and leaving it at my mother's house so we have a car to drive when we go there in the summers. I have every confidence that it could make it there and back many times over. I really don't have the time to drive it there and then spend any time there. So, I've decided to take a stab at selling it. My heart is heavy.

The motor is very strong, and many things like water pump, P/S pump, and other stuff like that have been replaced. Anything AC related has been removed. No heat. Cruise doesn't work either. Hmmm...lets try this a different way. Oil Changed Regularly. Both drivers side doors work perfectly. Passenger side work from inside only. Gauges work cept ODO and TRIP. All the lights cept reverse work. Rear seats are deflated. No radio. Moonroof requires a little manual help. Good rubber on 14" Bundt's!

The car handles great, and like I said I drive it a lot. I've been over 100 mph with plenty of pedal left once or twice. Corners are a dream! I routinely drive through the windy mountain roads of Southern Cal. as well as power trips to San Diego (186 mi, one way). I don't have a bad thing to say about the car and It would please me just to keep it. Gotta do what you gotta do.

I'll say $1500, feel free to make an offer though
I would consider delivering to just about anywhere.

dubnluvn@yahoo.com or 805-653-1944 until 11pm PST 7 days.


the scoops are functional, hand beaten out of aluminum.
