    FS: 1992 300TE, Pajett Red / Black, 98kkm, BaT - Japan import (Medford, OR)

    My guess is this one will end BaT’s RNM streak... https://bringatrailer.com/listing/19...ign=2018-11-26

    Commentary has been sluggish. Reserve is surely north of $10K.
    It looks like a cool wagon, but I think it might be swimming against the current.

    As of 345PM EST, today's Sales to RNM are running 1:1.
    2014 MB E63S, 2008 Tundra, 2006 Lotus Exige S, 1989 FJ62 Land Cruiser, 1996 Ford Bronco, and some other interesting and not so interesting vehicles.

    Seller smoking and/or BaT not adjusting people's expectations quickly enough. I would have thought $12500 would move it. $15k max. There's nothing special enough about that car that makes you overlook the other wagons that could be had for that money. I looked at this wagon for $15k, and I know it's a LOT more fun to drive.

    https://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-...eBackLink=true

    That's a chain driven 4.2L naturally aspirated V8 with 340hp and over 300ftlb of torque mated to a 6speed manual, ladies and gentlemen. The same engine in my Allroad has about 190k on it with no signs of going away.

    You notice the link to the 2017 writeup on BaT for the JapSpec Wagon had a $7500 price in it. Someone thought it doubled in value in a year? OK

    I remember seeing this car on CL a while back and talking to the seller. Part of me regrets not buying it, as it wasnt very much and I like these a lot.

    Kills me to bid on something I know in the back of my mind I could have owned for $7,500 via CL


    CHM78
    @Cesaro401 +1. I remember this on CL and thinking “hmm…how could I fit this in my garage”
