Hell, I'm just as curious as you are but no need to be a dbag about it. My cars stay in a garage a few miles from my house and I truly have not had the time to investigate. This clearly is not the car for you sir. Also, in regards to value, I have priced the car according to what information I do have and believe this is a more than fair price.
I was drawing a parallel, better yet, making an analogy. There was no question about the AC on this car. You took the comment out of context.
No one is being a "dbag" about this. You're making claims, people have provided the means to substantiate them (or not) and you have yet to respond. You just now explained why, so that's certainly helpful. Sorry to hear about your knee. I hope it gets better.
As for value, I have made no assertions about the price, however, others have. I'll withhold my judgement in that area until the questions that have been brought forth are answered. Otherwise, it would be unfair to do so.
As for being a potential buyer, no, I am not. I have been looking for a nice early 1980s Euro W126 chassis car, but the AMG aspect holds no interest for me other than for the few I have seen that have claimed to have AMG modifications. This thread has generated a wealth of knowledge to that effect, to which I am most grateful. It might even warrant being made into a "sticky" for just that reason.
I do have some curiosity in seeing how this particular situation plays out, however.
