I know that rusty W114 wrecks aren't worth much, but have they really sunk that low?

Baaaaaa hahahahahahaaaa :bounce: :laughing6: :laughing6:

I thought our kiwi mates would be all over this one already, but it seems to have gone unnoticed...

sheep jokes aside though, that is a pretty strange 'trade', The sheep would be worth more than the car.

Perhaps the seller is trying to pull the wool......, if you what I mean.
At $800- he is trying to fleece someone.
Just thought I'd get in for my chop.
Enough bad dad jokes, for now.

I often wondered why the forum sponsor always had a couple of merinos on the premises at Lyell Street. I had assumed it was for the odd order of sheepskins.
Customer: "Do you have a set of sheepskin seat covers for a W116, in stock?"
JG: "Not exactly, but I can get some made, real fast. Sandra, get out the sewing machine."

Now that theory has been debunked. They are clearly just for the occasional trade-in.
