Clarion G80 Sound System Restoration

Posted on 17 views
Clarion G80 Sound System I have a 1983 Mercedes 500SEC euro spec that was fitted with them AMG body kit and trunk spoiler, AMG Rear Speaker Shelf, Rial Wheels , as well as the visually impressive Clarion G80 Sound System in the center console. When I bought the car, it needed everything. It sat in a barn for over a decade and needed some major attention. Unfortunately the Clarion system was not working. The previous owner said it did work before being put away for many years. When it came time to start troubleshooting the sound system, it became obvious that it was going to be difficult. The Clarion G80 would power ON which let the different modules glow green but the tuner display, the tuner, and the tape deck did not work.

Lamborghini Countach Wing Found in Los Angeles

Lamborghini Countach Wing

Spotted for sale is a New Lamborghini Countach Wing for over $10,000 USD. Due to the rarity of the wing the seller wants upwards of $10,000 USD. He believes that the rarity of his wing should command a much higher price compared to an aluminum wing. He is basing this on the last sale price of an aluminum wing. This wing was purchased from a shop that was closing down. This wing was stored in a factory oem box and never mounted on a Countach for over 30 years. The box is currently missing but seller is working on locating it. This wing is fiberglass and not aluminum like the other Countach wings.

I am curious as to the value of this particular plastic Countach wing?

Is it worth more or less than an aluminum Countach wing?

Which is more rare?
