I think you'll find this car is a bit odd. It seems to have an MB engine, but
the chassis number is 300 or so before the MB shipped. Also the 'private
plate' is actually Irish - perhaps to conceal what the real registration letter
would be - it's 1/1/87, if I'm thinking of the right car, and the MB engine
didn't ship until 10/87.

They may not fail me for very long. I don't like the use of the Owner's Club's
name in association with such blatant lies. Technically, of course, it's
accurate - it is in _exceptional_ condition.
Exceptionally _BAD_ condition ...
