After working on my 85 300D for about a year on and off, I have started to think that it will probably never be as good as it is now while \I still own it. Maybe someone else should continue the TLC?

I was offered $1500 last Fall when the car had significant rust (but not on sheetmetal). Paint is very good and engine has only 60k miles since rebuild. I have spent at least $3k on rust repairs and other upgrades, never mind the hours of work I have put in. Just to break even dollar wise, I would need to get $4500. But really would ask $5k which also happens to be the agreed value it is insured for.

More than likely, I will just keep driving the car (mainly in summer) and give my 72 SL a break.
