That's my problem as I search for my W123 and W201. I simply can't afford the retrieval costs of traveling out there nor do I trust shipping it. It's for these reasons that I too am stuck looking for cars in a city that just has no market for these cars. I've only met one other member on these forums currently residing just outside of San Antonio. That's it, just one.

Unless you go see the car in person to inspect it, asking pertinent questions at that time BEFORE you put any money down on it - you'll never know it's actual condition.

Spending time and a lot of money to see an aged, remotely located used vehicle for sale, is part of it. Or, roll the dice buying it, shipping it sight unseen. The vehicle you receive, is never the one as descibed for sale.
