I am a newbie here, so thanks for the advice in advance!
I am looking at a 1991 350SDL with 135K. It is a 2 owner, probably an 8 on a scale of 1-10 clean. All records included. Any idea on what this car should bring price wise?

Most diesel owners will probably tell you to walk/run away from these cars do to the fact that a lot of those motors go bad. Start using oil and oval out the cylinders and bending the connecting rods.
They call them rod benders.

350SDL

these are very nice cars w/ a fatal design flaw. a sweet one might go for upwards of $10k, but just know that you ought to try to discount any price for what you would anticipate a replacement engine would cost you. i bought a really nice one and of course the motor blew (as i had anticipated) and i had a 100k mile replacement engine installed. last week i took a little roadtrip and got 35 mpg....i just tell people it's my (german) honda civic... good luck,gary
