I have the opportunity to buy a 1992 190E 2.3 with 113K on it. A guy I know buys cars from the Boca Raton, FL area and ships them up to Michigan and resells them. Mainly he just deals in Cadillacs, but last shipment he had the 190E. Word is (reliable sources) he only paid $5k for it. He sold all of the other vehicles he had in the last shipment and the 190 is all that is left. I really don't think he has put forth much of an effort to sell it. I went over to his place and he let me take the car with me. "Drive it around for a couple of days and let me know". I think I could get it for $5600. The car drives like a dream. All of the power accessories work. It shifts great. Almost seems like it is too good to be true.
What do you guys think I should do? Any tips on what I may want to pay special attention to?
(Larry Delor, you know who I'm talking about. When we spoke I don't think we knew that I could get it for $5600.)
