This one is almost twice as dear, with a few T&C, and unfinished work.

The first two are well priced, although I would take the 300SEL over the 280. Even though that 280 is in great shape and a great colour, the 300 is the much better car, even taking into account the M103's higher need for things like head gaskets over the M110. the last one could be a good car, but the seller would need to finish most of the work to command a price like that.

I agree to all Bryce.
In the current state it is, the last car is only worth the same as the first 2.

What worries me, is that he seemed to spare no expense or time, but left what seems to be easy things undone.

The headlight wipers is of most concern, they take less than 5 mins to fit!

I would bet they donít work, so he has left them off, so the new owner can try and sort it.

You have gotten very handsome with age Michel.

The hair didnít really suit you anyway

Thanks for sharing these great pics and memories mate.

Iím sure we would all like to see and hear more of Lebanon 40 years ago Michel. I know I would.
Apparently it was the ďjewel of the Middle EastĒ and was a number one tourist attraction for the rich and wealthy.

Have a look at this thread when you have time.
I believe the photo bucket pics are still there.
