1992 Mercedes 500E Found in San Francisco

1992 Mercedes 500E

Spotted in San Francsico is a 1992 Mercedes 500E for $11,900. The car has front end damager which should be fixable. It does not have a salvage title and should be saved. Its also in my favorite color of Arctic Silver. This car also has relatively low mileage of only 113,917 miles. I have seen cars with 200k miles go for 20k. This may cost less than 5k to repair and get back on the road.  Hopefully there is no issue with the frame.

Would you buy this and fix?

2016 Mercedes G65

Spotted in the Palm Beach Florida is a 2016 Mercedes G65 for $205,900 USD.   I have only seen 1 other one for sale in Texas a year ago.   This is an ultra rare 12 cylinder  Bi Turbo  G Wagon that has 603 horsepower @ 5600 rpm and produced 738 lb-ft @ 2300 rpm.   Over the years many engines have been installed in the G Wagon but I am surprised the V12 can fit.  Wow!   It can go zero to sixty in 4.9 seconds and does the standing 1/4 mile in 13.2 seconds!    This particular car has already been driven 3000 miles but has some custom features added already.   It has 22″ ADV.1 Wheels and 35″ Nitto Tires,  Fox Steering Stabilizers, and blacked out trim.   I prefer the stock look of these cars but to each his own.   What an amazing car!

Would you choose the G65 for this price?

1992 Mercedes 500E Found in Riverside

1992 Mercedes 500E

Spotted in Riverside, California is a 1992 Mercedes 500E for $8,999 USD. This may turn out to be a great deal but it will need some work to get it back to a show car. It has rust issues and will need hood, roof , and trunk repainted. I would suggest budgeting for a full respray. It has 215,000 miles which can turn alot of buyers away but if properly maintained these are solid engines. The seller has replaced replaced the distributor caps, the high pressure fuel lines and the diagnostic module (cooputer) to prepare the car for sale. The car has already passed smog on 5/2/17. He also has the title in his name and shows it is a clean no salvage car. Registration is current until 3/24/18. The original 16″ wheels are included with the sale but there are AMG wheels (see pictures) that can be purchased for an additional fee.

1985 Ferrari Testarossa Rims and Clutch

Spotted:  Here are 1985 Ferrari Testarossa Rims and Clutch for sale for in Los Angeles, California.    The seller has sold his car and has additional parts to get rid of.  He will not specify a price for his wheel set.   These are single bolt  knock off wheels with a 16.33 inch or 415 mm diameter so they will only fit a 1984, 1985, or 1986 Testarossas.   For the USA , these first year cars with single bolt knock off wheels came in for 1985 and 1986 only.  These cars were also known as  “Flying Mirror” cars due to their high mounted left side mirror for the 1985 and 1986 years.   The seller wants people to make offers and does not state a price.  It seems he wants something north of $5,000 for the set.  Also it should be noted that these wheels use metric sized tires which are almost impossible to find especially for the rear.  

Would you pay $5,000 for a set of single bolt knock off  wheels for the the 1985/1986 Testarossa?  Post your comments!
