Any vintage Benz owners?

Hi all Im a young guy in Ohio and own several old Mercedes.. oldest is a 1937 170 WWII German staff car. Then of course Pontons, Heckflosse. Wondering if anyone else is into them, or has any 170 parts they may sell? Always nice to hear from someone else xkreal@aol.com

1972 MERCEDES-BENZ 250 SEDAN

I own one of the finest (if not THE finest!) 1972 Mercedes-Benz 250 Sedans on the planet. It is truly near showroom new and is in "show condition". I need a front licenmse plate bracket to make it perfect, does anyone have one with the mounting brackets and bolts for sale? If so I need this to make the car perfect. As I am getting anoth one, a cabriolet I will lose garage space for this one. I'll sell it for $7250, for someone who knows a bargain when he sees one. It is detailed to win at any car show, it's THAT nice! It has Mercedes period alloys on it but I have the original caps in perfect condition. Call me: 315-789-3670

Hi - I own 10 M-Bs from the Pontons to 2002 and am right here in Ohio. Sold everything else but my Miata which has been driven under 5000 miles in 15 years and it's too cute to let go. I am pretty sure all these cars will fit into my casket when leave this world. Consider joining MBCA if you want to meet some like-minded car nuts.

Don:
Nice collection you have. I as well as you, love Miatas. I have bought and sold 133 of them to date, keep a 2006 for my summer toy. Having owned Ferrari's, Aston-Martins, I feel the Miata MX5 is the finest all around sports car ever made, period. Unless you want to impress your friends at the country club with an oil dripping, smoking tailpipe Ferrari or Aston-Martin, it doesn't get better than a Miata MX5. I've collected Rolls-Royces and Bentley's for years, sold all of them. The Mercedes I have is a genuine beauty. I'm tiring of cars, I'll be 70 in March. This car would make a novice Mercedes collector a beautiful car for cheap money. $7450 puts it in someones garage, it is worth much more. You couldn't paint one for this money. It is one of the nicest 250's on the planet, period. 100% rust free, interior as if no one stepped in or sat in it. I want to sell it, keep my Miata MX5 for the summer, simple as that. Someone who knows a bargain when he sees one should call me on this 1972 Mercedes-Benz 250 Sedan. None like it for this money...will suit the fussiest buyer, no doubt about it.
