I will post a thread in the For Sale section soon. Have decided to part with my much loved 1984 280SL. This car is extremely well-documented here on the forum. Stay tuned for the For Sale post.

FWIW, I am keeping ,y 1979 280SL, PetesMGA's former pride and joy.

Very nice. I like the cloth interior. I wouldn't be surprised if it found it's way back to Europe if someone doesn't grab it here.

Before Petesmga sold it to Chief quite a few years ago......Pete brought that car to Watkins Glen for some laps with the Lotus club of Buffalo.

I was chasing him around with The PIG....had a blast.

The car is a great runner.

These cars are very popular on Bring a Trailer. I've been watching them very closely for the past year. There are a lot of people (girls too) who are nuts about them. Standard shift R107's are hard to come by and quite desirable. If you haven't been following them on BaT, I would advise to start doing that to learn the right methodology and presentation. Or maybe you've already got a new home for it. Good luck. I sold my 1988 560SL fifteen years ago to my best friend. I told him, someday I'll be back into 107's. Now I have two more. Never could get them out of my system. ;)

Must have been a difficult decision, Chief, given all the history and emotions attached to the car.

Sometimes you just gotta pick your favorite child.
