Fence?

John, I'm glad to hear that the guy from the city is being somewhat reasonable. Hopefully there can be some sort of mutual agreement between all parties. This happened to a family member of mine who had at least a dozen MB parts cars on his lawn, behind the garage. The resolution included some downsizing, but also building a wooden fence to mask the cars from the view of the complaining neighbor. With all of the cars lined up and squeezed together against the fence, the neighbor couldn't see them. Perhaps your neighbor will be that reasonable? It could be worth a shot.

Best of luck... which I could come help.

Talking I'm a happy camper...

Got a chance to stop by and meet John and his brother Jason today. They sent me on my way with almost all I need to bring my '81 to where I want it.

John - made it back with the glass in one piece, but I had to take a hose to the fender to get rid of the hundreds of ants still hanging on. They did seem to stay in the fender, and not crawl around in my trunk!!!

After I left, was wondering if you had any functional climate control units to sell?

Don

yup. plenty.

glad the fender, bolts, Headlight doors, and the perfect rear window with all the trim intact made it to your home!
126 parts aren't too difficult to transport are they?

Also what is the closest Airport to you ? If they have given you more time let me know. Or if you need and extra set of hands to fence it let me know.

Probably been asked before, but if you get a list going, or once you have time, please let me know if you have a working cruise control amp for an 83 300

Thanks, wish I was closer to help out

How is the black leather interior on the W124? Maroon seats in the W124 wagon? 4hrs is a long drive but if you are offering for free I might make some excuse to drive up there.

Hah I spent the better part of an hour looking at satellite images of your town looking for your house. Quite a number of the citizens of your town horde american cars, but no benzes to be seen.

THEN

I remembered I had your address. Not sure how the city ever saw you! Your cars are properly shaded by trees as they should be

Hmmmm.
I wonder why the neighbor got their knickers in a twist.
Are they about to put their place up for sale?
Clearly not MB owners!!!
In time I am confident John will find out what the real situation was.
We can all be sure that there was no wrong doing on Johns part.

No body in their right mind complains like has gone on about a neighbor !!
