Before and after. My old E320 wagon spotted 6 years later

Sold in 2009 with 150,000 miles on it, still on the road in 2015 with 207,000. Needed a transmission in that time as well as some front end parts and an AC compressor. Still running great. Cosmetics on the other hand...

Do not understand how some people can treat a nice car like that. No respect.

Want to bet that the oil Tyler put in the crankcase and the filter is still there.

Well, the new owner is obviously a purist, and doesn't want to queer the authenticity of the vehicle...

That's why I just burn all my old stuff rather than pass it on...

looks like a moose vomited on the arm rest.

This is also why I almost NEVER sell any of my own personal cars to anyone local.
some people can brake an anvil in half just by looking at it.

Looks kinda like the guy from Kentucky - the holy roller, King of Beer drinkers, that dropped out of sight here?

Nah, Joe (wasn't that his name?) was better looking than the guy in the car. Met the "King of Beers" at a ChadFest some years ago.

As for the wagon, shame, shame, shame.

The guy had to know he was being played for a bit in the photo session, right? The $400.00 Samsung Smart phone looks eerily out of place on the console of the beat-to-h#ll car. Looks like it's now got 207K miles on it. Before mileage looks like 150K or so. Look at it this way - for 6-years he got a comfortable car that has withstood his care. All on a budget for the 60K +/- he's put on it. A good 'n cheap ride - dollar for dollar.

This is a good example of how quickly things can go downhill when they are not taken care of.

I always tell people that once you sort them out a used Mercedes is the cheapest car you will ever own.
