Yup, the dude spent a lot of money indeed, but didn't adjust the headlight wipers for the sexy photo-shoot! That's a deal breaker for sure!

Probably because the Ebay seller is not the owner of the car and can't answer any important questions. Owner seems to be not answering his phone either.

Pictures in the Ebay auction are several years old, when the original builder of the car was selling it on Ebay (its in the Brumos service facility in some pictures). It does not look like any of those pictures are current.

That's pretty insightful and exactly why BW is an incredible knowledge store. Thanks for commenting.

To me, a person that is actively looking for a W124 Wagon it's a modified non standard car that may (or may not) be a PITA to run. For me it's a 2000 dollar car.

In the ad, seller answers the question.
Q: do you have current pics? 96champs@bellsouth.
A: The first picture is not current, but the rest of the pictures are current. they are outside of my restaurant. anything else let me know! THanks!

Amazed no one bid, maybe there's too much suspicion with the low start bid or the 3 "Events" on it's history. A deal may have been made offline to avoid the eBay fees, time will tell. To me it's an awesome car and any perceived flaws can be easily corrected...

Interesting. Didn't see the Q/A at the bottom.

As for the auction, it ran the full listed time. So it wasn't ended early.
