You guys will enjoy this one
Technically this should be in the Cragslist thread but it's just so ridiculous I thought everyone would want to take a look.

"I have worked on 1000s of these cars" - Sure you have bud.............

Wow, that thread is full of fail. 30-40mpg? Just because it's Diesel doesn't mean it will get good mileage, but people buy it.

What a tool.

I read that as 1200 first and thought, hey that's not too bad.

just don't email those pictures around...

"I have worked on 1000s of these cars and have owned dozens of them"

Yet, he has yet to realize it is a 300sd?
Well I'm convinced, my payment (cash) is in the mail.:rolleyes4

That is a beautiful W116....too bad he thinks its a W123. :D

Based on what I've seen similar condition cars sell for on EBay, I think he'll be lucky to get $5k for it.

Looks pretty good though. If it was for sale by a reputable EBay seller, I'd be awfully tempted.

Hand painted Pin stripes were very popular in the early 80's, but GREEN? Blechhhh. Not on Astral silver with black leather.

I'll tell you right now, a 240TD couldn't haul 5000 pounds around town, it can barely haul itself. "Needs nothing", looks to me like it needs a antenna.

I see surface RUST on the door, I seen better for $9K, this car is WORTH $4K, This guy know's jack squat about this car...

BUTperhaps you misread the listing. Nothing was said about hauling 500 lbs in a 240D, he said: "The ONLY time I saw one of these engines fully blown and unrepairable was a landscaper using a 240D wagon to haul a 5000lb landscaping trailer (for 3 years)"

This guy has been breathing diesel fumes for too long.

$1200=good buy

$12,000=good bye

Let's something got into his head....

JordaanDMC-12 05-03-2009 01:34 AM

Georgia, Texas and California????
What I don't get is...

The car is in Georgia, has old Cali plates and a Texas inspection sticker on the windshield for the year 2000. :/ How does he have an inspection sticker from Texas if he has the blue Cali plates? Even if it was registered in Texas, you have to surrender the plates. Did he ask for them back or what???

From the pictures, the car looks clean... Bozo the clown should have vacuumed it though before taking the pictures of it, but w/e.

40 mpg pfffft..... 12,000 is waaay to much, MAYBE if the car had like 10,000 original miles or something, and even then.

Looks like a decent example but not twelve thou worth imho.

Yeah, too bad an MB mechanic doesn't know an SD when he sees one.
