Mystic, my sympathies. Awful time to try and sell a car, particularly a high-end one with a fairly narrow focus. I like PAS idea, but you'd still have to insure it and you'd have a headache there anyway, and even MB is having trouble moving them now with their own lease incentives...and you never know how the lessee is going to treat it. Gotta be even more scary when kdude tells you your car's big brother was offered $12,500 under what you're looking for. (Man, if I could get an E63 for under $50K I'd go back in debt for that...glad it's not realistic.)
You could always try one of those essay contest deals, but that would take at least 4-6 weeks to run out and you still might not get enough to run out the deal. Tight economy is painful on all fronts.
I'm sorry roadtripper had to unload on you, too. Generally sound advice, but when it's in a personal context it's pretty unfriendly. Good of you to take it gently and offer a further explanation, not necessary, but good of you nevertheless.
I don't have any ideas for you, but I do wish you well. Hopefully you can hang on long enough that you land another job and the issue resolves itself. If nothing else you know you can get close to $50 if that becomes necessary. At least you have that, a lot of folks would probably envy your position. It's Thanksgiving, so hopefully you can look past this and count your blessings nonetheless.
Take care and enjoy the ride,
