Nice 108 on Ebay

If this car is as represented it is an amazing car.

Hmm...

Is that a high mileage badge on the grille?

I thought he punted on the mileage question. For the real deal, you would expect something like "I have every record from day one and they authenticate the mileage."

But I looked again, and that's an MBCA badge. Now the only things that bother me are the hood gaps and the grille-hood gasket sticking out. Definitely a neat car, I wish it were close enough that I could get a look at it.
