Well, it's that time. I sold my 73 450SL on Sunday, and although it was somewhat sad, I know that it went to a good home and will be well looked after. I didn't get what I was asking for her (price will not be disclosed), but I was satisfied and that's all that really counts. As I was told at the beginning of my project "You will never get back what you spend on one of these." was to hold true. To offset my losses, at least I had a learning experience that to me was worth every dollar.

I would like to thank you all for your assistance over the past 4 years in your guidance through sorting the car out. Without your help it simply couldn't have been done.

I wish you all the best in the future both in life itself and your love and dedication to these fine automobiles.

Keep up your good work!

Loren

Someone bought one of the best 107s in NA. It was a pleasure sharing your experience. Check in once and awhile.

Wish you well Loren.:thumbsup:

All the very best Loren. Hope the new owner treats that car well!

PS: At least now I won't feel so bad about my not so clean engine compartment ;)

Why not buy another one and start the adventure all over again? I hear it gets easier as you go and there are so many of us here that would surely love to have you stick around.

I think I'm gonna cry. No...I am crying. That was simply heartbreaking news. Sort of like when your first pet dies.
