- Terms & Conditions
We handpick the cars we offer for sale, keeping in mind the vehicles history, current condition and value. We go out of our way to source vehicles from the southern states, such as California, Arizona, Texas, Georgia, Florida, New Mexico, Nevada, South Carolina, Virginia, etc. We believe this really adds to the value of our vehicles and sets us apart of the competition.We DO NOT buy vehicles at salvage auctions, and none of the vehicles in our inventory have salvage titles, TMU titles, etc.
We have a 30,000 sqft facility that offers repair and reconditioning services. Our technicians have extensive experience and knowledge of European makes as well as other unique automobiles. If we need to carry out a repair, we know where to get quality parts for said vehicle and how to properly preform the repair.
If you are concerned about shipping the vehicle to your home, don't be! It is our pleasure to arrange shipping for your vehicle, to the destination of your choice - completely free of charge to you (other than actual cost of shipping).We ship typically ship over a thousand of vehicles a year, and we are a licensed shipping broker. Unlike a shipping broker though, we do not charge a commission - you pay what it costs, and not a penny more - all of the money spent on shipping goes to the party that will deliver the vehicle. This cuts out the middle man and allows us to ship vehicles at the lowest cost, saving you money. Compare this to the typical $200-$250 surcharge a shipping broker gets on top of what it actually costs to ship a car and it our commitment to our customers becomes clear
*All photosincluded are of actual customers and vehicles we have serviced, sold and shipped in our facilities, photos are limited to vehicles that Dave personally sold and dealt with!
We have sold thousands of cars on eBay, and enjoy a 2500+ 100% positive feedback from our customers.

From helping you select the right vehicle & answering potential questions to taking care of documentation and shipping. Should you have questions or concerns even after receiving your vehicle, we are always there to help!
Recent service performed past 1,000 miles
You are looking at a well kept, great looking sporty luxury convertible.The vehicle has been made and assembled entirely in Germany, and consists only of Germany made parts! This convertible has a good sport car feeling to it. Because it's a convertible 5.6LV8 engine, it has nice performance to it. Burgundy exterior color gives the car a certain kind of unique classy appeal. It's a very rare uniqueconvertible. The car comes with a black soft top and color coordinated hard top as well.
Starting in 1985, the Bosch KE Jetronic was fitted. The KE Jetronic system varied from the earlier, all mechanical system by the introduction of a more modern engine management "computer", which controlled idle speed, fuel rate, and air/fuel mixture.
There are no reported manufacturer's defects on this vehicle.
The engine is very strong and provides the power you have come to expect from a Mercedes and runs extra smooth. The transmission has the Mercedes mark on it as well andshifts like on a new car, no skips or slips on shifts.The suspension feels very nimble and comfortable at the same time.
The A/C works well and blows cold air!
As you can judge for yourself from the pictures - the interior is clean while the seats show almost no wear!
All the electrical options appear to be in working order. The engine compartment is clean, and free of any leaks.
This Mercedes is equipped with a climate control system. The power locks, windows all work and are in working condition. All the power controls and buttons work a 100%.
The car also comes with VERY nice tires.The tireshave plenty of tread life left.
Now over 25 years old, this car is attracting new owners due to its iconic good looks, simplicity, and vault-like build quality. Total production from 1986 through 1989 came to 37,218 units and prices rose a whopping from $48,200 in 1986's to $64,230 in 1989.
Q:Do you offer financing on your vehicles?
A: We do not offer financing on most of the vehicles we sell, due to the nature of the cars, as most institutions do no offer financing for older vehicles. You can however, in most cases, get financing from credit unions, if you are a member of one. There are also lending institutions that specialize in older unique vehicles - some of the ones we have worked with in the past are: www.lightstream.com, www.jjbest.com
Q:I looked up the KBB private/dealer value for your 1992 Jaguar XJS with 29k miles on it and it only comes out at $4,500, how come your asking price is so much higher?
A: KBB, Edmunds and similar resources provide calculated market value information that is based on data supplied to them from state resources, such as the DMV and Tax Office. They then have formulas to account for possible options on vehicles (which is why sometimes an option of premium sound system can increase their calculation by $300 on a vehicle that is only worth $3400). In general most older vehicles that are sold on the market are sold with high miles, in less than ideal condition. Many of these are sold privately with a declared value less than actual sale price. So while KBB and other resources work pretty well on vehicles 10 year old and newer with average miles, they would not work for the example above and in similar situations, even for newer vehicles. a 1992 Jaguar XJS in average condition with 240,000 miles (the average mileage of a vehicle that old) might be worth 3,200 KBB has no DATA know the value of same vehicle in pristine condition with very low mileage on it - the actual market value of this vehicle is around $14,000 give or take depending on condition, color combination, etc. And of course similar car with even less miles on it - lets say just 15,000 miles is probably worth $20,000 or more
Q:I am interested in the 2001 BMW 740, have you personally driven it? Have you had it checked?
A: Unlike most dealers, we don't just flip cars for high turn over. We invest time and money into every vehicle we sell, starting with getting good solid cars to begin with! Every vehicle we get, goes through an inspection process in our service facility. We will check the vehicle over and address the problems on the car. Some of the things we check are - brakes, suspension, road noise and vibration, engine operation, transmission operation, cooling and lubrication system, steering and alignment, presence of significant leaks(not moist oil spots that accumulated over the past 5 years) soft top operation and more. This DOES NOT however means we will fix every wear and tear item on the car - for example, if the vehicles brakes are at 45% and preform fine, we would not touch them, if they are at 35% but exhibit noise or shudder, we would address the issue, if they are at 15% we would replace them because they are low enough to warranty the replacement (to put that in context, brake pads fail PA safety inspection at 2/32â€ or 1.5mm, typical new pad thickness is 12mm or around 16/32). We also extensively test drive our vehicles. However, it is impossible for our salespeople to personally test drive ever vehicle - that's why we employ qualified mechanics that do. Further, the fact that we test and repair problems on the vehicles we sell should not be misconstrued as a warranty of any kind - we do our best to repair any problems the vehicle might have, however these are used vehicles, and it is up to you, the buyer, to satisfy yourself as to the actual condition of the vehicle. The final burden of buyer diligence is on you, and we will do our best to assist you in any way we can.
Q:I just love the classic 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer that you have to sale, can you tell me its previous history and where did you get this car?
A: While our sales people/staff will love to tell you everything they know about a particular car, they often simply might not have the answers you are looking for. Most often, our vehicles are sourced from new-car dealers trade ins. We work with dealers all over the US and have a first hand pick at some of the vehicles that interest us. This often comes at a premium, but we cannot afford to pass on the clean cars our customers expect us to deliver. We also source our vehicles from other wholesale sources and some of them get traded in to us for a vehicle we sold. Our sales people are not related to the vehicle acquirement process so sometimes they might not have an answer - that doesn't mean you can't ask - they will let you know everything they know about the vehicle!
Q:I want to stop by and check out that green 2006 Range Rover that you got, sometime this week.
A: We welcome inspections of any kind, however, please keep the following in mind - we have 2 facilities in different locations. Vehicles get moved into and out of storage. You will need to set up an exact time and date to view a vehicle - the vehicle would need to be pulled out and your test drive coordinated with a sales person. If you are planing on looking at a vehicle several days or more out, we strongly recommend you leave a deposit for us to hold the car - that way you wont be making plans that you would need to cancel in case the vehicle is sold. We DO NOT hold vehicles without a deposit.
Q:I want to secure a vehicle, and put down a deposit on it - is my deposit refundable?
A: Discussing the terms of your deposit to secure the car is up to you and the sales-person. As a general rule, deposits for cars in the automotive business are NON-REFUNDABLE, since vehicles are not easily stock-able - this specifically applies to used cars. This does not mean however that we would not refund your deposit within good reason. We do not refund deposits where the customer does not show good will to follow up on the purchase - in other words, if you put down a deposit on a vehicle, wait a week, and change your mind because your wife does not like the color of the vehicle, or if you found a vehicle that you like more - don't expect a refund. We think it's fair, because we would never sell a vehicle that we have a deposit for to someone else, and if we are holding a car for you, we are losing customers that would potentially pay more than you did.Terms, Conditions and General Guidelines concerning our vehicles
Please realize that though we make our best effort to describe every vehicle accurately, there will be normal wear and tear for the age and mileage on the vehicle - simply due to the fact that these are previously owned vehicles.
