Where to sell my benz? Where to advertise?

I checked on the website and it showed the following price quote:

1995 Mercedes-Benz S Class
Sedan 4 Door S500
105,612 miles

Low Retail Average Retail High Retail
Base Price $26,975 $29,850 $31,650

Mileage Adjustment
105,612 miles subtract: ($625) ($625) ($625)

Is this quote accurate? If so, which magazine/websites/company is the best place to list the car at?

Check eBay as well. You can probably find similar vintage/milage S500s that for $15-17,000. That's tough competition.

It took my sister forever to get $20K for her 94 S500 with 75K miles, no Starmark. Finally sold in the late spring.

95 S420
91 300SE
87 300SDL
83 300SD

Yeah, you can't use NADA to price your car for private sale. After all NADA stands for National Auto Dealers Association, so that's the price you'd expect to pay if you bought a car from a DEALER. Kelly Blue Book is a better guage of what you could expect to get for your car if you sell it on your own.
