95' E320 with 150k miles .... $800 .......
So yeah, this car sorta just fell in my lap... if it were a few months ago, I would fix it and flip it.... but....
i have no desire to keep it. It was a customer's of mine and his kid was driving it daily til daddy took it away. I dont think the kid like's me much anymore
the car drives great. Besides oil and maybe plugs it doesnt need much mechanically. there is surface rust. no major rot or damage. It does need a window regulator.
this is a great cheap daily local driver..... i would trust it on long trips just not daily trips of 100+ miles one way each way.

Bill, have you owned one of these yet? It ain't no Audi or bimma.
In all honesty, they are great cars, a friend has had many of them over the years, had one with 400k on it.

Those in my opinion are the last of the "real Mercedes" wherein they were built like a bank vault and so far ahead of anything available from other companies. Today, a Mercedes is nice, but the competitors cars are a lot closer in quality.
