Following up from my post yesterday, Sadie the W123 is just a quick brake bleeding away from being ready for purchase. After a small skirmish that lead to the vanquishing of several brave but foolish spiders, I was able to remedy the leaking transmission. The battery needed some charging but she fired up. And holy sheet did she cough out some sooty water and other crud.
But this car always amazes me with how well it runs after not starting/moving for months. I guess someone has expressed interest in buying her with my neighbor. That decision is up to him so if that falls through hopefully I can make her available to anyone interested on here.
