I was told that this car was sold by 9am today - These things do not stay mate :)

I do not know who bought it though. I guess another crazy guy like us :D

Doesn't surprise me. Particularly when you see another one not nearly as nice going for $7000 on the same website!!

Here is a 300D (http://www.autotrader.com.au/iteminfo/adnumber_WY2533127041_loc_locRZSQregtAVSCdistRZSQA VSCstateRZSQ9AVSCregRZSQ_off_0_sect_Automotive_sor t_otRZSQ1BJDZfdRZSQSearchDisplayPriorityIndAVSCotR ZSQ1BJDZfdRZSQFirstPublished_sqt_0_srchby_srchbyRZ SQmkmdlAVSCmkdlsRZSQMercedes-BenzMRFX300D_stpg_1_subs_Used+Cars_) asking for $15000.

Maybe the body is gold plated.

Not quite, I see many each day - not all mine ;)

I do have one which I bought a while ago, as a potential spare parts car. I tow started it and it ran fine, although I was unable to start it using the starter motor before towing it. Reverse gear is shot, but I have a W123 280E tranny which I can provide with the car.
The car cost me $400. I have renewed the registration until June/July.
I am asking $600 for it, plus $100 for the 280E tranny.

I doubt that I will get the time to work on it anytime soon and it is sitting in my driveway. I had to exterminate some paper wasps today, they has set up home under the bonnet. A nasty surprise for any prospective purchaser.
