3 hrs (allowing for traffic and in no hurry) from airport if you come down I-55 S. and then take the US 67 S. exit straight into Poplar Bluff. I have driven it in 2.5 hours many times and I have driven it in 4 hrs when I left the city on wrong day and time. Us 67 at Fredricktown or Farmington not sure which, but there is big sign for the highway and at that point you are about 65 miles from my house.

Send me an email if you want to come down and see the car.

Video is made, will try to figure out the transfer to laptop, it may be ready by to night or tomorrow. This is a first for me.

... and they protect as well also. I got a call just last night for an accident, Accord cut in half by a Suburban, the dash-forward was roughly 2 car-lengths away from the rest of the wreck.

THAT's why I drive Mercedes. Worth a little more fuel.

If her W124 was only 8 years old and only had 23,000 I would be keeping it, but at 19 years and 204,000 it is a tinker car regardless of brand and type.

I have the movie made and am trying how to figure how in the world to get it in the computer. When I do and get it up to Photobucket for viewing I will post a link here.

Here is the first file I have been able to get up loaded, man is these files slow to up load. I will be putting a couple more up today, but the one with the walk around and starting the car while hood up is 441 MEG file and Photobook only allows about have that size for each video file. If I can figure how to break it up I will up load it, but looks like I may have to redo that photo shoot.

Link to interior view.

More interior of gages while engine running.

Well unless anyone wants a 441 meg move sent to them I am redoing the video today if I can (so foggy out now can't see 30 feet) and will do it in two or three clips.

I believe so, but he said a friend on the forum told him about the car. However the buyer sent me a PM about the car so he is a member, but not sure how long. I just talked to him on the phone this morning and he said he would take the car. He is near Wichita Kansas, so it would not be like driving to NY or CA for sure.

Yup, Old Navy owes me a commission. Daniel, also known as Greenuncle, is the lucky new owner. I believe Daniel is planning on making this his highway cruiser, and it will be his first "modern" Mercedes. This is his third purchase from a forum member. The first was me with Trigger, a 1982 300TD, and the second from Mr. Kenny, a very nice W116 300SD.

I really look forward to seeing this one.

When do I get my cut, Old Navy? Also, I do believe he's planning on having it shipped.

Cut!!! Obvious he does not know my wife.

She already is talking about tinting the windows on the new car, etc.

Me I'm kind of leaning toward buying a extended warranty for the car and never have to worry about the thing myself. I checked here local $1300 to $1500 for one of the better warranty packages, but will need to check on the internet for some other's.

As I said here and in the video's it is not a perfect car by any means, but it is one that would be great to restore or spend a few bucks on and have a very nice daily driver with lot of years of service to the new owner. However I told him like any 20 year old car it needs someone who can do the tinker work, other wise one of these old cars will eat you up in repairs.

Yes, many thanks AGAIN to Tyler for feeding my seemingly bottomless addiction. You are a prolific matchmaker and surrogate father to many.

Thanks Old Navy for working with me to get this puppy shipped out. I am looking forward!

Daniel

Well the only looser here is me I guess, seeing how much I put into the car after buying and then almost killing myself working on the car. But most of us here will never come close to making a profit on the sale of a car, but that is life I guess.

My selling price was based of the amount of money I put in the car, not what I paid for the car or even market value. I based it on repair dollars spent, and this morning realized I undershot the mark about a $1000 at the very least. It was the cost of transmission that got me, I was thinking $1300 but correct figure was $2300, seems age and senility has again raised its ugly head. I was thinking $2600 was not to bad for almost 2 1/2 years of driving, but this morning that figure jumped to $3600 and that is not counting the original cost of the car. Now I don't feel so good about selling the car, except I will not have to look at the car that I almost killed myself over in my garage a few months ago.

Oh well it's only money, and you can't take it with you when you die. And I am not leaving any behind for the guy that might replace me, or a unappreciative kid.
