A real RS pump will have an unmolested ID tag number on top.
The correct number is: 0408 126 019. The number above that is the serial number.
The ID tag on the governor section shows: EP / RLA 1/51 R.
The pump section shows: PED6KL 60/120 R3 X.
The date stamp on the pump casting will be a 72 to 74 date.
This MFI Pum was built in the 52nd week of 1972.
Spotted in Boston is a Mercedes 190E 2.3-16V Found in Boston for $11,000 USD. These cars seem to be climbing in price. Only 2000 examples were built. This example seems like it has potential to be a good buy. It has 160k miles but looks to be in good condition. One interesting upgrade is that the seller has installed 500E Brake Calipers and Rotors on this car. Everything is said to work as it should. I have never driven one but I heard they are pretty slow in stock form. There seems to a pretty good following for these cars. I would like the opportunity to drive one especially a race version. They were very competitive with the E30 M3 on the racing circuit in the 1980s and 1990s.

Spotted in Los Angeles, California is a 1996 Porsche 993 Turbo for sale. This car is at auction with only 4 hours to go. It has a clean title with only 27,878 original miles. I am curious to see where this car sells at. It is red with black interior. The door inserts are red and the gauges have orange faces. Do you know if these are factory options?

Here is a 1990 BMW Z1 Convertible for salein San Diego, California for $135,000. I have always liked these cars with the doors that drop down into the sills when open. The price is shocking but this particular one is a Museum quality Z1 finished in its original “Traumschwarz” paint. I dont believe there are many left of the 8,000 examples produced that has less than 1,485 original miles like this one. It is believed that there are less than 10 examples in the USA. This car also has the ALPINA badge on the trunk but it seems it is on decorative and not tuned by them.
These cars are rare in the USA. Would you want one? Post your comments!
