No problem, David. Send me your RTN and I'll wire the cash from my Nigerian account.

Best of luck,

That's the Benz that first made me aware of them years ago. I thought, "Oh man, to be able to have a car like that someday..."

I'm just not feeling the love here guys. What's wrong? I don;t ask for much out of this world. This car would make my life complete and all I get is a cold shoulder and some rubber checks. I need to start hanging out with a better (read richer) crowd of people.

If I do not get this car I am not only NOT going to move to canada but I'm going to start breeding and razing more liberal pinko commies to piss you all off

The reason is haven't pitched in is because I would hate for you to overpay for that SWB.

Keep shopping.

That car is scheduled to be at the Kruse International auction in Ft. Lauderdale in January of next year. Looks like the owner is trying ebay first.

Guys, that's silly money, but what an impressive piece of engineering! I'm scared of having the money to keep my fleet running, much less a complex car like that.

Unhappy Buyer Beware!

As someone who lives in South Florida I wouldn't trust ANYTHING that a seller says down here.....Nice pics, but this is the scam capital of the world...

I have a friend who is interested in that car. He did not see it on ebay but knew about it from Kruse. I think the car is legit. But then maybe that seller lifted that information from a Kruse cataloge or maybe a website. My buddy was planning on seeing and possibly bidding on it in at the Kruse International auction in Ft. Lauderdale.
