I saw that, and I'm thinking not. It doesn't match the photo of the odo.

I'm thinking it's maybe just over 88,000.

Wonder what it'll go for. Right now the rims and Recaros are all you'd be paying for, the rest of the car is free. I have to admit I'm tempted, if only it was closer.

$3050.00 Seems cheap to me. Which probably means it'll take another $5K to fix the 'two bushings and a tune up' issues :) Still, if it had been local I'd have jumped on it for that price.

ChuangTzu, if you ever decide you want to sell it, let me know, I'll be looking in 6-12 months, and will be happy to pay double what you paid.

Great buy, keep us updated!

I hope to hold on to it for a while, but at some point I may decide to move back to Europe and I'd rather send the car into loving hands rather than throw it in storage for an indeterminate period. You'll be the first to know. =]

Well done! I watched that car and was tempted to tell my son about it. I hope it proves even better than it looks, and it sure looks the business!

Congrats!

Just was wondering.. what's up with the two other 107's in the pics? There's a red one and a black one also...

Good driving home! If you stop in Houston on the I-10 give me a call - and we can race down the highway for a few miles!

Regardless of what he says about the seats in his listing, I'm quite sure those aren't the seats fitted at the factory.

Thanks. No kidding. :D

Let me offer another congrats. I was watching the auction end and couldn't believe you were the only one to snipe. Are you driving it back or having it shipped?

Congratulations ChuangTzu

I'm glad I posted the link. Knowing what you went through with your last SLC it gave me a warm and fuzzy reading that you purchased the car and that it's in good hands. Best of luck. Having an SL with a 500 engine myself, I know you'll love the driving experience.

Best of luck!

Apparently he's selling some of them on ebay right now... I just talked to him, he has like 40 cars.

I don't have enough time : / Gonna have to ship it...

Though that would be a helluva drive. =]

The fax used that code from 1991 to 1997, as best as I can understand it. From 1972 to 1984 that code was used for heated front passenger seat, which is the one that applies to my car. I wonder if the Recaros are heated though...?
