Selling the SL...

....and I will be back. I've always had a soft spot in my heart for a 113 car so I'll be looking in the spring. Funny, I never see 230/250/280 folks here...too bad.

The 380 is on Ebay now. If interested PM me for special treatment.

Thanks Pete. As you can see I need to adjust and tighten up the passenger side, rear side moulding.

Beautiful car Rick and I know you put a lot of work into it over the years. I sold my 107 three years ago next month and this week I just bought another one (hope to have it delivered this weekend). I never left the forum because of my love for these cars and the great discussions and information here -- so, stick around, your input is always good. The 113's are beautiful and they have really increased in value of late -- I was looking there as well.

I look forward to reading about your new MB.

At 260k my 107 really started smoking and had been hit twice in parking lots. So she now sits in the side yard as a backup. Could not see putting $20k in a car that in pristine condition would be worth $15k. So I bought a 113 There are two sites for pagodas only, will PM you with details.

Daniel. Beautiful car! Any work that needs to be done?

Darryl, I look forward to your PM. I've been checking out the 113 group now for quite some time.

Thank you -- I don' think anything is needed -- it's a 1987 with 56k miles, new tires, new a/c compressor (R12 system); within the last 1000 miles its had a new water pump, thermostat, brake fluid flush, air filter -- which were recommended by a MB dealer and the PO had it done, and it has a newer soft top -- but you know these cars, there is always something. I added a couple of other shots.
