    Dropping the price to $17,000

    I have been driving this car once a week back and forth to work. With the new transmission the car drives like a dream. It's never been this good! Soon it will be buttoned up and put in the garage for winter.

    I will entertain reasonable offers. If you have a Polaris RZR, truck and/or trailer let me know as I may be open to trades.

    I am surprised by the lack of comments from The Collective about this car. It would appear to be in nice condition with plenty of maintenance records supporting work that has been done by the current and previous owners. At the risk of sounding naive, is the evidence of rust a major deal breaker? Thanks!

    I sent a PM to the seller a week ago since he's local to see the car and I've yet to receive a response. Maybe the seller isn't really interested in selling...

    He may just not visit the forum as often I believe there is a number on his website ? If not maybe someone else can get you his contact info or try to google it.

    Let me express my deep apologies for not responding. For the life of me I cannot seem to get notifications to my email inbox from this site. It is incredibly frustrating as I have tried many times. L James I am responding back to your thread now.

    Everyone else I encourage you to reach out to me on the form I created for this car on my website.

    I don't recall that this has been an issue with other people. My guess is that your ISP has targeted my ISP as a spammer. Have you tried another type of e-mail address, such as a gmail, yahoo, hotmail, etc.?

    Hey Gerry!

    Thanks for chiming in. I didn't expect you reach out on this thread. Let me know if you want to take this to another forum (no pun intended =).

    I have a gmail account. Oddly your message just now on this thread gave me an email notification. The two above that did not. Private messages do not either. For what it's worth, this is what my General Settings tab looks like in Google Chrome.

    Took the time to scan & OCR every receipt by all four owners. Available with and addition to the physical paper copies. The digital library is more extensive as I went digital with my receipts pretty early on in ownership.

    Vlad,

    I did have an opportunity to drive Frank's car over the weekend. However, it was not I that purchased this solid vehicle. It is a great example of a 500E mechanically. Definitely a great driver. It actually felt faster than a 68K mile 500E I drove last Feb in Edgewater, NJ.

    My holding back was a result of personal preference regarding the color. As you know, I don't like Black cars. Too difficult to keep clean. I was hoping to make an exception for this one. At the end of the day, I want a silver/ black car. I did miss a nice example that recently sold in AZ. The one in Florida seemed a bit pricey, but good history.

    The other issue is the rust. That is clearly represented in his ad as well as his dropbox photos. As long as you understand it's there, it should not be a surprise to you.
    Rust is not an issue I want to deal with. For the bulk of the rust, you can replace the parts with new and be done with it. But when there's apparent rust, you don't know what you may find when you dig deeper.

    Frank does seem to be a straight forward honest guy. The service history is meticulous with this car. I wouldn't doubt anything he states about what has been done. He does have some nice parts that will convey with it as well. Would definitely feel comfortable dealing with him had the sale moved forward. I'm sure the buyer will find that he's purchased a solid mechanical example when he gets it.
