That roof is hilarious,  great find.

The best thing anyone could do is put a new solid roof on.

7k..... then to make that a Gud un....

Well done in walking away instead of buying a money eating monster

It felt good walking away as the last thing I needed to do was get a personal loan before I build a garage- its a great example of never look at the clock for condition - its an original car but once you cut the roof skin off its had welding and needs welding on rear wings so sort of invalidates the low mileage factory capsule  premium. Now if it was a G60 I would of been tempted if it had recro lol . 

The old gent was telling me oh you just finding things wrong with it to knock me down on price - I said honestly chap I not going to talk money with you just sort out that timing belt chap youll see it mentioned in your service book, and off I went in me 185k G60 driving as fresh as a daisy after refurb knowing mileage dont matter to me .

Rare car this only 1 of 7 to come to the uk- ouch spent 20 k in 1 year on drive train.   Good story here if you read receipts how he took to an none specialist and then took it to a merc specialist that sorted it all out after the bad repairs.

Badly fitted wings, wonky headlights, rusty tailgate and structural welding, I'd run a mile! Our local European valeters do a far better job than they have of that, £6 for a wash only.

There's a 6 cylinder diesel estate where I live (vented front wing) and I've always liked it, same colour as the above. My FiL had an E Class saloon as well as a 190E and it's an itch I'd like to scratch sometime.

Nearly bought a W124 diesel estate at one point - but I would not go near that if the body has not been touched, and it would be hard to make back the money on the engine/mechanicals if you can't see any of it.  They are notorious for rust on the chassis as well, so would need a very thorough inspeciton up off the ground. Lovely cars though when all is well. Oh and the engine looms can bio-degrade and need to be replaced, the whole lot.

But they are lovely cars when sorted and all is well.

A good read of the reciepts show that the bosch garage messed up the welding to the rear beam mount - also the timing chain. 

The second garage the specialist took if for a road test and after further investigation realised te welded area was flexing and causing the geometry to be well out - also investigated rough running and timing out- i think this broke the owner doing this twice .The body work is a mess all right - but been 1 of 7 pre merger AMG makes it very collectable so I hope she is put right. The 500 sec amg wide body is the daddy w and also the 190 e evolution is a 120 k car now. Be very interesting to see what It goes for as they are going for big big money in the USA. 

This is probably one of the most desirable pre merger amg cars built  - Schumacher owned one  .

Its actually a pretty decent car the calibra! 700 quid wow. Special edition too the se6? Damn I am sure calibras probably need the same attention as a corrado in 2022 as well.

When I open my garage and show people my car for their first time they normally say “wow” or similar 

I can’t imagine my disappointment never mind theirs if I opened my garage and that was in it
