Today's Ebay joke of the day

Mercedes Benz 200 Series Convertible | eBay

While real 3.5 cabs are at and above this amount.
Newport Convertible are the worst looking chops in my opinion.
Bargain priced to sell



Wanted:
w126 Left euro headlight, Someone that can refinish my wood in Grey woodgrain
Helpful Positive responses, Negativity Keep quiet

I have actually owned not one but two converted 3.5 convertibles. If I only still had them, I would be on easy street! lol

For $185 bones, you'd think the dash wouldn't be cracked, and that they'd make an attempt to clean the thing out.

Ok,
Car can be had for a reasonable price. Seller purposely put odd details and price in ad to generate attention for the car which it did.

He had it on ebay in late may and it got no bids. I think the attention it is generating is negative with the price he has posted. I think the car is pretty attractive except for the hacks to the dash. Maybe I just like the colors...

spoke with him he will take south of 100k, but I get the impression, this is one of those deals where outside forces like a wife is forcing a sale, puts a ridiculous price and gets to tell her see "no one wants it".

So he's picking the car over the wife. Maybe he should just tell her that. Sounds like an a-hole to me.
