The post stinks and the car needs some work "Needs: rear side window, dash reupholstered, better wheels, and i would do valve-seals and adjust air/fuel mixture. Would also need all the proper care necessary when buying a vehicle that sat for a long time".

What do you expect on the post. He is east of the Mississippi. A long way! Looks interesting though for someone on that side of the world.

Grumpy seller.
What do you expect? I live in Colorado and every time I sell a car I'm bombarded with people who don't want to pay what I'm asking. They just want to buy the car and turn it over and make a quick grand (or more). Its even worse in this ecomony. When you sell a car yourself you just about have to be prepared to give it away. I sold my '92 W140 for $1500. Any lower than that an why not just hand over the key and the title and tell them to take it free? I can only imagine how bad it is in New York where there are literaly hundreds, if not thousands of people scaning the paper and Craigs list to see what they can get for nothing. These days book value means nothing and everyone wants to make your loss their gain.

I don't know if he realizes that he spent more time ranting over a "disclosure" than he did actually describing the car.

the seller is a member here, and the car is in Brooklyn. Had original Clarion set-up (Stolen), badged as a 1000SEC, and is well documented on this board. If I remember right it has tri-y's, and the wheels are not original (Also stolen).

In that case

In consideration I deleted my commentary, which doesn't change my opinion of how poorly the ad presents the car & seller. That documentation from a year ago: http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w126-s-se-sec-sel-sd/1460700-sec-amg-questions.html and http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w126-s-se-sec-sel-sd/1453689-1986-500sec-amg-cl.html

i understand his pain, craigslist is full of bums who call or mostly email and waste your time. doesn't mean you should write an article in your ad about it. it seriously throws off any serious buyers. I wouldn't call him even if it looked mint.

"No real engine mods, Tri y's and a euro motor, Richard (RJMBurgess) helped me out several months ago when I was a little discouraged and was considering selling the car. We determined that the cams were not AMG, the mods from AMG were strictly suspension and cosmetic plus a ton of interior goodies which no longer exist. Aside from that, car has no cats, pretty much just a muffler in the rear".

$5K is a lot to ask for a car with not much AMG in it and in that condition and no comments about the attitude :)

I'd be happy to check out the car if anyone is interested. Has the Clarion install across the dash, very rare and only done at the top coach houses... :thumbsup:
