1988 Mercedes Benz 560sl on 2040-cars
East Palestine, Ohio, United States
I'm selling my 1988 Mercedes Benz 560SL as I'm out of garage space.
This car is in fantastic shape and draws comments every time I have it out.
I'm in my 50's and I have no clue how fast this car will go as I've never came close.
I've never abused or beat this car !!!
The car drives perfect and has been meticulously maintained.
I've owned the car for 5 years
Every filter (air, oil, power steering, fuel) was IMMEDIATELY replaced as I bought a complete MANN filter kit
Every fluid replaced.
New exhaust from the cat back
Fog light lens'
Dome light lens'
Cap, rotor, wires and plugs.
Last year when I got it out of winter storage it had a hesitation (drove me nuts) took it to the garage and replaced the injectors and pump ($2,000.00)
Fresh Mobil 1 oil every year when it came out of storage.
This car is 26 years old and has some wear:
The dash is cracked
the radio stopped working (I have another Becker that's included).
The paint is pretty weak (it does look fantastic from 10 feet away)and there's some slight bubbling at the lower trim (see picture)
The leather interior has some wear as pictured but the seats welting is in fantastic condition.
I welcome you to come and see the car before you bid (or send a mechanic)
The car is in East Palestine, Ohio (near Youngstown)
I'm not a car salesman and I want to be as honest as I can be.
I EXPECT THE SAME FROM YOU.
IF THIS CAR IS NOT AS DESCRIBED, I'LL GIVE YOU $300 FOR YOUR TRIP HOME.
Payment: I require $500 via PayPal at auction end.
I will accept a check and IT MUST CLEAR BEFORE I SIGN THE TITLE OVER.
Shipping: Thats up to you, send a service and I'll help them load the car or fly in to Pittsburgh or Youngstown and I'll pick you up and you can drive it home.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Greg Hyde 724-622-3994 from 10am - 7pm eastern standard time only.

The Internet has shrunk the world in terms of the way people communicate by making it possible to send an email from Oslo and have it show up in Cleveland almost immediately. But that instant contact has wrecked the work/life balance for many. They get home from a long day at the office, yet they can never fully put their feet up and relax because another hour or more of checking and replying to emails awaits. However, German automotive giant Daimler is putting an end to that churn, at least while its employees are on vacation.
About 100,000 Daimler employees in Germany are eligible to opt-in to a new program called Mail on Holiday, according to The Atlantic. When the workers go on vacation, they can switch it on, and the service auto-deletes all of their incoming email. "Our employees should relax on holiday and not read work-related emails," said Wilfried Porth, board member for human resources, to The Financial Times as cited by The Atlantic.
Mail on Holiday puts a thumb on the scale of work/life balance in favor of a little more free time. The system means that Daimler employees shouldn't even be tempted to check their email on vacation because there's nothing there - and it also avoids them coming back from a relaxing holiday only to find a mailbox packed full of hundreds of unread messages. These days, people are absolutely obsessed with their work, often to the detriment of their health, not to mention spending time with their families and friends. On one hand, Mail on Holiday sounds like the sort of vacation breakthrough we'd need to truly unplug and unwind, but on the other hand, it makes our skin crawl just thinking about the lack of communication.

If there's one thing we've learned from the latest video from Drive, it's that the combination of Chris Harris and David Coulthard will produce some very quotable moments. Take this exchange, for example.
DC: "We are by some way the slowest."
CH: "But we're in a class of three cars, apparently."
Here's a chance to acquire a celebrity-owned vehicles, and this time at a discount instead of a premium. So the celebrity in this case is Consumer Reports, that magazine that could be equally adored and abhored by car enthusiasts. CR buys all of its test vehicles and usually finds willing second owners within its own ranks, but its opening its small used-car lot to the public. On the forecourt are four roadsters: an automatic 2012 Audi TT 2.0 TFSI Quattro S-Tronic with 6,600 miles for $36,500, a manual 2012 BMW Z4 sDrive28i with 8,400 miles for $45,000, a manual 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK250 for $39,500 and a manual 2013 Porsche Boxster with 7,000 miles for $48,000.
Those numbers mean a savings of $9,000 to $10,000 before haggling - each car is listed with an "Asking price" so there could be some wiggle room if you show up with pockets full of dough and eyes full of serious intent. Since the money CR earns from the sales go back into the magazine's budget to buy more test cars, however, it probably won't take any oddball trades, so you can forget about getting any purchasing help from that track-day AMC Javelin project on blocks in the back yard.
The vehicles have been taken care of and spiffed up for sale; buyers will take delivery at the CR test track in East Haddam, Connecticut and get a tour of the facilities. While you're there they'll even take you on a lap around the track so you can feel how your car handles when driven by one of its testers. They will probably not help you with advice on which toaster and dehumidifier to buy - you'll still need to get a subscription for that. Have a look at the video below to see a day in the life of a CR test car.
