Look at a car in Ohio

I have a deposit on a 930 in Twinsburg Ohio, and I wonder if anyone on this forum has seen the car or is close enough to look at it for me before I go back there myself. I am in Cali. The dealer is doing some smog testing work before I travel back there.

Car is at Switchcars in Twinsburg. '86 Garnet Red Metallic.

Thanks in advance.

Tom

Tom;

Think your best bet is to contact the Ohio Zone rep and e mail him and ask for help. Also you could try the 930 forum over on Rennlist.

Tom-

That you, from wayway back on MercedesShop.com? 2.3-16 days? Some reason your name jumped out at me and I remembered it.

If so - hey! Been a few (dozen) years heh heh. Still got yours? I've been thru a laundry list since 8-).

You had 2 904's!?!? Crykies!

I've posted your query to some bud's of mine in an Audi forum, there's a few OH'ers that may be able to help.

Hey, long time no talk. Unfortunately, I sold the car in '04 to buy a new BMW M3.

Love the M3, but really wished I had kept the 16-Valve! Beautiful little car!

I hear ya - wish mine coulda been a keeper too, sold it to fund 993tt brakes & lowering kit for my //S6

was a good 40k run with it at least

I miss most of my cars I've pitched, my 930 left in Nov after 4yrs & 20k 8-/

boohooing aside... I've got 2 guys within 20mi of your prospective 930 willing to lay eyes / hands on it as needed

however

one can't do it until next week and the other can't do it until the following week - both are out of town, go figure

that work for your timing? Let me know and I'll get you in touch with them - both great guys, known them almost as long as I've 'known' you 8-)

gotta love the powah of forum communities

great to re-connect with you though! Hope your 930 comes through - amazing machine, and a FABULOUS community here... I miss these bastardz...

I appreciate the arrangements. Right now the ball is in the sellers hands. He needs to get the car to show less than 1% CO on an idle smog test. Then things will happen pretty fast. But it is possible that eyes on it might be useful next week.

I have independent info that the car is "immaculate" from the mech in Fla that did a top end service last year. Also a concours scoresheet showing a score of 115 out of 120 at a Porsche Concours in Fla this spring.

I'm pretty convinced its a great car.

Thanks! Tom

Krasuskyp:

I have PM'd you my contact information to use IF your guy goes to Twinsburg next week.

He may not need to go, depending on the sellers success in getting the CO in line.

Tom
