watch out for this ad on Ebay. Not only is the seller, promoting the car as Rare he is promoting it as the last 126 Made.LOL I gently emailed him to point out that maybe he has been mis informed and I know he did not intend on False advertising. So anyway if your on Ebay shopping watch out for this add. If they are mis informed or Maybe Lieing?lol Could be the millage is also misinformed, maybe even wrecked?

Man, that is one windy ad. I have posted a lot of auctions and the goal is to get my point across without spending 2 hrs to do it.
This guy gives history lessons with his......gm

well I am sure all that information looks good. However I am not a mechanic, so I know little about Cc's and all that jazz, but I do know when the car was built and where.lol If I knew more, I wonder how many other things in that ad are fictional?lol I did email the guy, but he has not emailed me back as of yet.

What a bunch of frickin' crap. This guy really is long winded. Even if I was looking for a 560 and I really liked that car I still wouldn't buy it off of him.

Notice how he says the car is meticulously maintained at a MB dealer, fluids changed every blah, blah, blah. Then goes on to say that there are no records!!!!

I just hate the word "meticulously".... people use that word so often that it has losts its real meaning.

As you are a new member to the forum, Question: all your postings seem to be on the negative side?

As to your comments to this Ebay item. Question: sounds as though some one with real MB knowledge burned your low bid!!! and you are ticked off?

I reviewed the Ebay item and this seller has all the correct details and photos to effect a serious sale?

Post some photos of your Florida 1988 salt-rusted 300 E and see what comments you might get on this forum!!!

Other then that welcome to the forum.

Yeah, whenever I'm used car shopping I always stay away from Florida cars. They only have 2-3 months per year of warm weather, lots of rain and it snows 8 months of the year... No wait, that's Canada I'm thinking of, where you get salt rusted cars not from the warm ocean breezes, but from the Morton's salt factory dumping half of their inventory on the road.

Or somebody wanting the buyers to think that way - if it really is a real charitable organization, they'd let the buyer know where (to what kind of cause) the money is going. In the lengthy description, I did not see any indication that the seller is a certified charitable entity.

Watch out, indeed.

I don't have a problem with the history lesson, but I do have a problem with generic sales pitch.

Check out the Lexus he's selling, same language in both descriptions.
