It should sell, if

it's this color!

[http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=4525618653&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT]

I actually thought about driving down to have a look at this one when it first came up. I thought it might stay in the low teens, as in 13 hundred. WRONG AGAIN!

Cracks in dash, ripped seat, bad tires, "virtually no rust" (does that mean it only has virtual rust or not?), hasn't been driven in years, ..........

I believe each of these cars are the final production year for that model.

Maybe so

[QUOTE=Brian Carlton]$3850.???

All I can figure is that it must be some sort of flashback. High bidder’s mom used to own this car, color and all. He used to take Bobbie Sue to the drive-in movies in it and it’s where they both got to “second base” for the first time. Later, he married, Shirley, who now goes about 260, and nags him and the kids constantly. Just trying to reclaim a bit of his lost youth, and since he’s a controller for XYZ Industries in Atlanta, money is no object. At least I hope that’s it.

I can’t even imagine the other bidder’s story…………. and I’ve got a pretty good imagination.

edit-- Just noticed that both high bidders have ZERO history. High bidder has been a member for about 3 years, his car finally showed up! #2 joined yesterday.....

Obvious shill bidding....
I can't tell you how much I love that color, though. Color alone is worth a grand! (it's a pea-soup love thing.....)

If I'm buying, the cherry showroom condition ones should go for about $1800.

If I'm selling, add another zero...

I'm looking for one for SWMBO right now and I'm concerned that they are really too hot for me to handle....but that one that someone here got for $1800 out of Dallas and drove home....man I wish I had found that one..

Wow!

Closed it out at $3850. No last minute "rush" on this one. Interesting to see if it shows up again next week. Won't be hard to ID with that color.

Yo, ferreed, did you check out the local wagon today?

There's a 80 wagon in tampa in parts cars on ebay last check was $665- runs and drives, comes with a third seat. Very dirty and has two rust spots. I may pick it up/ clean it/ fix it/ resell it- whadda I need with FOUR MB's????? Three of which would be wagons?????
BTW My '80 wagons has Unknown miles- perhaps around 300K but runs great with no big problems has A/C and heat, lives for I-95 and the junkyard. Flawless dependability for the last three years- $2400. The wife's '82 bought from the original owner ( a doctor with 4 MB's) at 126K- $3000. Again- those are Florida prices for one living here and willing to look hard.
