      I always like when old busses with questionable history come up. I know practically nothing about them but always enjoy reading what's wrong with them from those that do know.
      signatures are annoying, right?

      Did you follow the story about a year ago with the $135k red/white 23 window bus that people figured out was made from several different ones? And IIRC it had a forged VIN. It was interesting to watch it unfold.

      jesus christ. link? I didn't think bus prices could even get that high.
      edit: apparently they go WAY higher than that. Why would anyone pay a quarter million for a vw bus is well beyond me...

      this is the thread:
      https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/vi...er=asc&start=0

      Honestly the buyer is a bit of a moron. Did 0 research and by sounds of things didn't even look at the vehicle, then sued the auction company and won all his money back plus legal fees. I am struggling to believe this story. Talk about dumb luck.

      My memory of the time is a little foggy because there was so much change at the time and chaotic in many ways.

      I'll make a new thread soon but thanks again to DerBaldGuy for posting the GLI! The deed is done and I'm currently crashing in Columbus for the night before finishing the trip back to PA tomorrow.

      Not only was the seller excellent to deal with but the car is as good or better than expected and worth every penny IMO. It started right up from cold without complaint, no smoke, no noises, etc., and the A/C does actually work just like he said. It has it's fair share of rock chips but for 260k miles the car is in incredible condition. Already ordered a variety of general maintenance parts as although the PO did a few things (heater hoses, rebuilt the shifter, motor mounts, and front brakes) and there are some records, it's unclear when certain things like the timing belt were last done. It'll definitely get suspension of some sort but that's TBD for now.

      hell yeah! congrats! Love those 16v's

      Does that car have those automated seatbelts? Looks like they're 2 piece belts or something along those lines? I remember my 1993 mk3 golf had some weird seatbelts that were attached to the door...

      Oh yeah, that was one of the most memorable. I didn't know the buyer got his money back and fees.

      Good lord man you stole that thing. What a beauty. So happy to hear this worked out and look forward to your thread.

      It has the passive restraints. The shoulder belt clips on at the door frame and you can either leave it clipped and the seatbelt opens with the door or unclip it. Then you put on the lap belt separately.

      One of the most non sensical "safety" features I have ever encountered. The shoulder belt never sits right on your shoulder and it is easy to forget the lap belt altogether.

      My '91 has them as well but luckily I was able to find a complete setup to change to standard belts. They should be on the way to my post office now.

      can't remember the last time I saw one of these anywhere... $1600



      https://nh.craigslist.org/cto/d/conc...170034833.html

      72 MB 250C - Rough to be sure...could there be any money made at $3500?



      https://nh.craigslist.org/cto/d/sale...169762311.html

      '68 Merc Montego Convertible for $7350 seems like a good value for an ice cream run car

      Only thing worth money on that 250C are the bumpers if someone us backdating a 74+
      My 280C was very nice looking (needed tuneup and mechanical refresh) and I couldn’t sell
      For 3500 for months! Still wish I had it back

      I wouldn't necessarily call him a moron. Everybody can't expected to research everything about every purchase they make. Nobody has that much time. Just like people can't be expected to read the terms and conditions for everything they sign. People literally don't have enough time for that. He was obviously new to buses and if you're buying a vehicle from a reputable place, you can make the assumption that they won't sell you a cobbled together pile of junk. Or at least, you should be able to. Which is where that story turned sour, because it turned out that Mecum did absolutely zero verification that they weren't selling something cobbled together that had been vin swapped at some point. If he had bought it from a private seller, then I'd be more inclined to agree with you.

      Yeah W114/5 are really the black sheep of vintage MB's-- that thing has too much rust to make any money off of.

      Thanks. It needs a brake job and the linkage need to be looked at. The P.O. said he had it rebuilt but it doesn’t feel solid feels really loose. The interior is in really good shape( no cracks on the dash ). Probably what surprised me the most was there is no major rust anywhere on the body.

      LOL. The Mazda MX-6 in V6 5-speed is a pretty cool car though. On that note, I search for the Mx-3 V6 from time to time, but they are unfortunately pretty hard to find anymore...

      Listed on FB Marketplace, but probably on Craigslist...

      Is this a scam? $2,200 for a 65k mile 3000 GT VR-4 seems low, honestly...

      Yes, that 3000GT is either a scam or the dealer is advertising the downpayment he wants as the price.

      Yeah that GLI is insane, minus your typical mechanical sorting nothing sticks out as needing attention. Honestly looks like a lease return you'd find at the VW dealership back in the day. So clean.

      I don't know if this is a good value but this looks like a great car to take the family out for ice cream.
