I was engaged with DT’s Technical Editor CFlo in a spirited battle of “who drives a crappier wagon” (spoiler alert, it is CFlo) when I said with a twinkle in my eye, “you know what DT really needs?” “A 225 degree fahrenheit ethylene glycol enema?” “No…well…maybe…but what I was thinking is that it needs more classic Benzes that are grounded to the ground and powered by BMW inline-6s”. “Oh yeah.” Find this 1968 Mercedes-Benz 250S with BMW power offered for $9000 in Morgan Hill, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

Car is for sale only, will not expect any trades. Asking price is $9,000 FIRM there is a lot of things I didn’t list that comes with the car. plenty of photos if requested. you can contact me via email but text would probably be the best for a faster response, if i don’t I respond then it means I’m working and will get back to you when I’m available.
Come and take a look at the car and drive it (money in hand) you won’t be disappointed that’s for sure.
I don’t drive the car as much anymore since I have a new project. This car deserves to go to a good home, where someone would enjoy driving it.
