It looks like I WILL be purchasing an SLK32 from a private party out in California or Montana. Do any of you have any advice re: dealing with a private party like this? The car is at a dealership right now; they will call me later today with the results of the buyer's inspection. Assuming that goes well and we move forward, the seller will produce and have notarized a bill of sale for me. I will send a check or wire the funds and as soon as they have cleared he will send me the title and authorize the dealership to release the car from the dealership. I've never done this before and some of this sounds like I'm being a little too trustworthy. What are your thoughts?
