Anybody? It looks like a fairly solid runner. I think the guy wants to us it in a demolition derby. Maybe I'll call and see what he wants for it, but I dont have room for any more cars.

I'm already saving a 220d in Bozeman, Montana. A remarkable machine, the 220d sedan; with no power steering on mine, it is a dream to drive at speed and it is a good MB diesel for me to start learning on. If I'm alive a couple of years from now I'll be looking to tackle a MB twin-turbo six or seven years old. I love my 220D, but I don't think all the 220D's should be saved; "....into the gentle night..." and all that.

Sure looks purdy. Why kill the jewel if it runs good?

I almost bought a 220D 700 miles away for $2900. There was one advertised around here (seattle) that needed a paint job and had a marginal interor that sold for $3000. Did he say what he wants for it?

No response yet, but if it's really cheap, I'll tell you after I get off the plane and drive it back here.

hmmm... I wonder where its really at... 360 is not a Seattle area code. Looks like it might really be central Washington?? I'd be interested if I didn't already have two 220d's needing work (including a tie rod ;-)

BTW, use this site to backtrack phone numbers....

Doesn't give who it is, just that it's in Silverdale.
