1985 500SL 130K (Horst)
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. =]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!

Apparently he's selling some of them on ebay right now... I just talked to him, he has like 40 cars.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...
I don't have enough time : / Gonna have to ship it...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!
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...?Wait.... What?!? Fax?
