Mea culpa mrearlygold, I didn't see your note until yesterday. No thread update email, probably went to a spam folder somewhere.
Yes, actually we did list her for auction on eBay. "Buy It Now" was $17,500, starting bid $12,500. Auction closed last night and did not reach our reserve of $15,000, which was the lowest we would have let someone buy her for.
Did have one person come and see and drive the car yesterday; he was quite complementary. He like most folks we have talked to knew that the average
book value is around $14k. However she, like all our children, is above average, so worth a few bucks more than book.
We are going to take her for a ride today and then put her back under her cover. My guess is that we will have a garage for her for at least the winter, not quite ready to list our NJ house for sale yet, although the realtor is chomping at the bit. Tight home inventory here.
Thanks to all who have looked.
PS Here was the eBay listing: Mercedes Benz E Class Base Sedan 4 Door | eBay
Not sure how long it will stay active. Also got some smart requests for what the condition of the undercarriage was; garage down the road was kind enough to let me take these pictures while she was on a lift.
