The W212 is actually an E63, been sitting there for weeks. It's at a bodyshop. Readhead has been given a love tap, and the ATS in the background is the first wrecked one I've seen (light rear impact).

Retro rod Mercedes Ponton:
Guy wanted $36k, they offered him $28k. I think I like these better in original condition rather than slammed with chrome rims.

He should have done older style alloys and not such low profile.

EDIT: Pawn Stars offered him $20k, not $28k. After their offer he dropped down to $28k but wouldn't go down any lower, and Rick wouldn't go anything over $20k so no deal was made.

Yikes. I vaguely remember this car. He should have taken the 20 and ran - not going to be easy to sell that. MB people won't like it, I doubt custom car people will want it, will take some time to sell.
Would be so much better as a resto mod - put correct tires and wheels on it.

That's a cool presentation. I can get into the sentimental stuff too. Makes me feel good about choosing Hagerty. I appreciate the driver quality of the car, too - not overdone, not a heap, just something fun.
If my dad was still around, I'd love to find the 60 Ford wagon he had back in the 90s, and give it to him - he sold it on a whim and regretted it soon after. I still have no idea what happened to it - not many red and white on red and white Country Sedans out there, but it was never seen again.

I had J.C. Taylor for years, and I had a good experience with them on the one claim I had in twenty years. When I sold the first two cars and cancelled the insurance, and shortly after bought another Studebaker and wished to renew, I was turned off by the attitude of the woman I spoke to on the phone there. I decided to try Hagerty and thought they were great. They actually seem like 'buffs' there.

Yes, there is definitely a car enthusiast contingent there. I chose them because of the "agreed value" idea - I didn't want to spend a few hundred dollars having a relatively low value car like mine appraised. I've never filed a claim, but the rates seem fair, they support the hobby, and nobody seems to say a bad thing about them.
