That looks quite nice. Missing some trim, respray?

Almost seems too nice upon first glance...

yeah, something's a little off with this one.

though the ad states can be delivered with new seat covers as the originals are worn, they look quite nice in the photos.

I would agree. 199,000 is nothing for a well cared for M110.
Chinese Red?

Wow! Another one? That makes it official, every 280SL 5 speed from this era was or has been imported into North America (or it sure seems so of late).

Put it back together? Sure honey, no problem.

You know what the hardest thing to get for that car is going to be...the 280SL badge for the trunk lid....the 113 models don't fit 'cuz they have different hole patterns...of course they've already bondo'd up the rear deck anyways so just glue on a 280Z emblem and nobody will notice...lol...oh yeah and just tell them the chrome trim molding was missing from Paris....And did you see that Humongo AIR pump next to AC compressor...that's gotta pull 25 hp off the motor...probably sounds like a diesel at idle...

Another example of 107 porn.

Definitely fapworthy. In slightly dimmed lights: only a little.

For some reason, I sort of like the color. Different from the ordinary, subtle.
