Ok guys, I bought the car. I went back to see the guy one more time. We went over the car very carefully. He showed me all the records. He has had the car serviced at the MB dealer for the first 2 years and at our local indy shop for the last three. He has not had the head gasket done. He priced it at the MB dealer and was quite shocked, but the car does not need one right now. It surely will sometime. I got a $1200 quote from the Indy shop and that includes milling the head and redoing valves while in there. I also ask them about the car's history.. they said it is an excellent car. They would recommend it. Bottom line: I bought the car for $3400 . I pick it up tonight.
You stole that one! Great deal.
1200 for head gasket and valve job ain't bad either!
