What are some more specifics about the car. I bought mine cheap as well, but have spent well over $2,500 in repairs. Now keeping in mind that I spun a bearing and needed a new/rebuilt engine. Remember to 'focus on go, not show.' These are great vehicles to own and with the right kind of maintenance will be the best acr you've ever owned. I recommend checking out mb190.tripod.com which is full of any and all info about these cars.
