Okay...how does this 'private listing' work ?
Surely not 'everybody' makes a 'private listing' bid ?

Mercedes 300DTD from our friend Lidak246
More poop du jour from our seller. Stick on wood, maaco paint job. Check out the right rear wheel. Its a W126 rim, holes are shaped different, lug nuts don't show (W124s from factory dont use the really long lug nuts) Notice the wrong offset!! He also painted the bumpers.....

I used to think that he had new floor matts for each car he listed, but after looking at this one I think he just puts the plastic on the old ones that say "remove protective cover." What a rip off.

Too bad eBay doesn't allow you to find out how many times a certain VIN car has been listed. This one http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1987-W124-300TD-TURBO-DIESEL-STATION-WAGON-WARRANTY-FL_W0QQitemZ230048643042QQihZ013QQcategoryZ6330QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem has been on at least three times under 2 or 3 seller IDs.

People must be wise to this con artist. Also the market is against him now because I think prices are down because diesel is now more than gasoline in many places in the US.

I've looked at a few of his cars..
They look a lot like cars i work on. I am a pretty good detailer. But i dont try to sell them for 10000 dollars more than they are worth.
Find a filthy car clean it up.. Save some money. although filthy people are usually poor maintainers of autos.

Yea.. this guy is picking up filth piles at auctions or junk yards (maybe runs a junk yard) and paints them up dyes the leather and rug.. cleans it up (but not too well.. notice the dirt in the black steering wheel and trim?) puts some parts on it from what ever car will fit and sells it like its some sort of classic mint car.

Where does he get those prices anyway?

I love the pictures.. makes it look like a real collector advert.
I dont get why the manuals need 3 or 4 photos from different angles...

I also dig the mix and match wood and the odd wear differences in the seats.
The headrest is worn but the seats are perfect?

He's Back

Our friend from St. Pete is back only now he has his own website and is still trying to sell the W124 POS wagon. Watch out! This site came up at the top of my Gmail as a sponsered site. http://www.mercedes300tdw124.com/ Looks like the old eBay listing just switched over to his own site.

This is why used car dealers are considered the lowest life forms.

I'd be confident in guaranteeing the engine/transmission too for 500 miles/5 days
