Looks like good confirmation that the, ahem, "prototypes" are actually just 119.960 toobies.

Other than the full 4 caliper "Silver Arrow" big brake kit few months back for $15 each, very happy with today's pick. The little story behind this 1995 SL320:

Few years back, my brother found it by chance while driving around. Low mileage car with front end damage: no fenders, no hood, no bumper, just the engine... $1700 is what the garage owner wanted, mismatched hard top. If I needed engine or this low miles 722.5 transmission, I think $1500 would be wroth it. But not as a restoration project.

Well, as off today, the private lot at local pick-a-part became anything goes lot. Imagine what car it was... The very same $1700 SL320 from few years back. Some things has been butchered while in the private lot, but $73 bought me all these spares:

But most importantly the seat cushions! These literally look almost new, and soft!!! Just did 2 step Lexol on them, could not be happier!!! Beautiful soft original perforated MB leather. Now my SL500 interior will be near flawless!!!
