W124 300E - Parting Out

After 4 and a half years of joy and pain, I am scrapping my 1990 300E. The head gasket went last week and I just don't have the time to maintain this car anymore. I'm in Toronto, by the way. So, here's the deal:

It's in excellent shape, with about 190,000kms on it. It has the gray leather interior which is in excellent shape (except the usual driver's seat wear and tear. Since I've owned the car I've replaced many, many parts on it. This car has only seen OEM parts (other than headlight mods, etc.) and was running AMAZING before the gasket went. Some highlights:

Nissens Radiator (installed two months ago)
Water pump (installed one year ago)
Air Flow Meter + Distributor + EHA valve
OVP Relay
Idle Control Valve
Rear electric sunshade (new, original)
Dash wood (unfaded)
16" chrome rims (the ones usually on the 1996-2002 CLKs) with good Nexen tires.

Overall an excellent car but after $2,000 in repairs since May I just don't have the patience anymore. By the way I have all service records since February 2006, in case anyone is interested in buying the whole thing as one piece.

The transmission and engine are in excellent shape (good compression numbers, fluids and filters changed diligently) but I don't have the knowledge, patience, or tools to remove these from the car.

So let me know what you need, I'll be posting many of these parts on eBay soon and will be sending the car to the junkyard middle of next week to make room for my new car. A nice, sensible, cookie-cutter, mid-sized sedan.

You have good compression but the head gasket is blown? Usually good compression means the head gasket is ok. Right?

Sorry, when I last checked the compression, the head gasket wasn't blown. This was over a year ago.
