     I purchased this wagon on eBay from a great guy here in Florida two years ago. He only sells top notch cars, and this one has been no exception. It has been a fantastic car, but the time has come to get a newer car for my growing family, and this one sadly has to go. It is about as close to perfect as you can get for a nearly 30 year old car. I'll start with the two known issues - 1) The glow plug light does not come on when you turn the ignition. Very minor, you just have to wait a few seconds before turning it over in the morning. And 2) The rear window wiper is working intermittent. I just noticed this the other day while driving it, checking everything out. It could just be the switch I'm really not sure, I never use it but it could be an issue for someone else. Other than that, the car is perfect. Even the cruise control works !(rare) The A/C, windows, radio, clock, tach, odometer, vacuum system, all work properly. The engine and transmission are in great working order too. It has been very dependable, and I would have no problem driving it any distance. My wife sometimes drives 250 miles a day for work, and she has used this car more than a few times to do so with no issue - other than not wanting to give me the keys back :) The great thing is that it's driven on nearly a daily basis, hasn't been sitting for years like some, and is routinely maintained. I am not the original owner (obviously) and I do not have service records dating back to 1985, wish I did, but I've maintained this car through a local German car shop and could pull service records of what I've done per request. I have one key and two proper blanks that I will include with the sale, along with a spare oil, air, and fuel filter.
A deposit of $500 is due within 48 hours of sale and full payment within 7 days or she goes back up. Thanks for looking, feel free to message me with any questions or to set up a time to see it in person. I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking. Just keep in mind that yes, the paint looks fantastic at 5 feet away but it does have a few scratches and chips - it's nearly 30 years old!

btw - If you are out of state, shipping is on you. If you want to set something up yourself, I'll assist in a reasonable way but I'm not going to do it for you. You can message me and we can work out the details if you're serious.

2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Coupe

Thu, 31 Jan 2013 14:58:00 EST

Mercedes-Benz upgraded its SLS flagship Coupe and Roadster for the 2013 model year, and the changes are marked with them new "GT" nomenclature. Both SLS models arrive with a retuned naturally aspired 6.2-liter V8 delivering 583 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque (the horses are up from 563, but the torque remains the same) mated to a revised seven-speed AMG Speedshift dual-clutch gearbox. Rounding out the mechanical upgrades is a redeveloped AMG two-mode adaptive suspension. Physically, the revised models are differentiated by their new "GT" badging, darkened headlight/taillight buckets, red brake calipers, unique wheel colors and high gloss finish on the front grille, exterior mirrors and hood/fender fins. Inside the cabin are new red seatbelts, Alcantara upholstery and contrasting red stitching.
As it is nearly impossible to experience the aluminum gullwing beast on public roads, Mercedes invited out to Southern California's Willow Springs to wring out the 2013 SLS GT Coupe on a racing circuit.

New Die Hard movie wrecked 132 cars in $11 million chase scene [w/video]

Sat, 16 Feb 2013 19:01:00 EST

It would seem the act of dying hard brings with it lots of wanton destruction of the four-wheeled kind. According to John Moore, director of A Good Day To Die Hard, starring Bruce Willis, There were 132 (cars) that could never be used again. Another 518 required a lot of work. And damn right there were some good cars there... That's the fun of it."
Please join us in one great big collective sigh. Done? Okay, let's continue.
"With Die Hard it's about how audacious the action is," says Moore. "So you have to drive over a Lamborghini. An actual one. And yes it hurts me. I'm a car fanatic." Yeah. Sounds like it hurt really bad... though not as bad as the final tally after all the carnage had been counted: "Someone showed me the numbers on the car chase and soup to nuts, you put it all together it was like an $11 million sequence."

Gullwing America turns SLS AMG Roadster into stunning 1955 300 SC redux

Thu, 14 Feb 2013 17:01:00 EST

Gullwing America specializes in what it calls "retro styling meets modern technology." It's next demonstration of that is the convertible above, a stylized recreation of the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SC (inset) supported by the structure of a 2012 SLS AMG Roadster. Commissioned by a client in Eastern Europe, the resulting car is called the 300 SLC.
The hand-formed aluminum bodywork required just a few changes to the SLS AMG Roadster, namely reworking the headlights into a stacked arrangement of LEDs and relocating the pop-up spoiler behind the cabin. The retro grille and long, straight hood evoke the past, the custom exhaust, height-adjustable suspension, 21-inch wheels up front and 22-inch wheels in back, however, stray a little further from history. The 300 SLC will come with a hardtop and be one-of-a-kind, making it even rarer than its inspiration, of which 92 were made.
If you have any more questions, they can probably be answered in the high-res photo gallery above and press release below.
