this reminds me of our quest for our first Benz. I looked in the papers and looked. Nothing. Then a '77 280SE showed up. It was listed as "excellent".
I called the seller. "yep it is perfect, excellent". Wow I thought. I packed my one-year old daughter and wife in the car and drove one hour and forty-five minutes.
I saw a car that should be it but I knew it couldn't be the one cause the right-rear door was crushed in.
I found the owner and asked him about the door. His reponse "Well it is kind of perfect for the year and mileage". I would of locked him in his own trunck if my wife hadn't pulled me away. Almost four hours for what?
