Now from a salesman point of view, what I'm about to do is dumb, but I don't want any confusion.
I have a 190e that I bought for $2000, and I loved the look of the car, figured I'd modify it and make a nice little track toy...but after having it for a while, I've found that once I get it modified to what I want...it'd be a completely different car and the money I would dump into would never be worth the resale value, so I'm selling it to find a better platform...anyone interesting in a parts car to fix up another 190e can have her for 2k.
I had it inspected at local shop and have the service paper showing what's all wrong with it if you would like an old Benz for yourself you can fix it up...but as I'm only 16, and the project was to be funded by me, I simply can't afford it. The car does drive, but it has a nasty exhaust system on it...so its a smoker. The car doesn't smell like smoke on the interior, so that's nice. Since I've bought the car, I've only drove it to the service shop and back. It's a smooth riding car and the tires look new...I'd say 85-90% tread left. 117,5xx miles on the engine.
Like I said, it's got a rough amount of repairs needed, but I bought it, and drove it home, It's got a full battery, and new plugs, starts well, and sounds fine while running.
I don't have a digi-cam or else I'd post pics...I'm going to take it to the garage where I work and get pictures of it from underneath and all other angles so you can know exactly how she looks.
If interested on the pics send me an e-mail to Stripe14auto@hotmail.com
and I'll send you the pics as soon as I get them.
Thanks for reading,
