watch out deer

I was suprised to come across my own car in this forum! I inherited it from a family member. Do you think it would sell faster if I removed the deer whistlers? Having trouble finding the right buyer here in Tulsa, OK - I thought the deer whistlers would give me an advantage so I left them on.

FTL, is that you in disguise? That is way to funny!

LOL, I went to look at the CL ad but it was expired. My '86 US 560SEL came from PA with deer whistlers on it. I worked like hell to get them off and remove the residue from the adhesive.

Anyway, GLWS. I like red.

I like it too. Kinda strange not seeing Palomino Interior on a Red car too.

Having lived in East Central Michigan near Lake Mich., those Deer Whistles do work to some degree, but if you are into the "Deer in the Headlights" portion of the encounter...then not so much ...BUMP,Crash, Dammit!. Mich would let you have the deer if you hit one. Small condolence for wrecking ones car or truck. Rather see the Deer Whistles on the MB than a Critter Getter front bumper as on so often sees where deer abound.

BTW Whistler, I used to Live in Tulsa, Out by the Airport. I'd remove the whistles.

i think there are two things working against you-One, red is a sports car color and an SEC is a touring car. Two, it's been color changed (it used to be blue?) and that is almost always a 25% deduct. Having said that, I think the car looks good.

If you turn the deer whistles backwards, the deer will run to you. Great for easy hunting...

It used to be blue?????

Inner fender wells are blue as well and probably inner firewall too. Too bad I like that color Blue. Hard to tell if Lapis Or Midnight, or Nautical, but blue none the less. Pretty car though.
