I've been watching this driveway ornament for awhile since I go past it at least once a day. It popped up on CL today, so we were discussing at work. Looks like it has a PS leak or something, but we discovered the high press line is $60 on Epay.


What could possibly go wrong with a $500 S Class?

Hood doesn't close because the hinges haven't been lubricated, and it was probably forced open. That's going to be a pain. Aside from that, it reeks of deferred maintenance. Might be a good parts car.

True. Actually looking at the pic now it looks like it's all askew. I read the ad as it just wouldn't latch, not that it's stuck partially open. It's sitting in the driveway like that, after several months of the hood being closed, so your assessment makes more sense.

We were scheming and thinking grab the car for 350, replace all fuel filters, add a couple glow plugs, and go rack up more miles.
