the G320 on the site looks quite nice
comes with some cool stickers too like Plymouth Road Runner and Isky Cams

That G320 on there for 18k seems like an affordable one.

The only 320 I see on there is in BC and it’s 22.5

This is Adams Garage with a new name.

The listing I am referring to is

http://sodo-moto.com/listings/1994-mercedes-ge320/

Adam Chovanak is the owner and he is one of the original clubgwagen members from the late 90s. We competed in the NW trophy challenge back in 2003 and I have purchased a G500 from him which was a great car for a friend of mine (also a clubg member) Momo. Recommended!

That 320 for 18k that needs minor body work looks like a good little project !

Pics show us doing repairs on Adams 280GE cabrio which had hub bearing problems after the rally.
Harald and Alex assist. Harald winching me sideways after I slid down the muddiest hillside in Tillamook Oregon. Harald guiding thru the trials course. etc. Felt real bad for Harald that trip, he got super sick from the 280GE's exhaust fumes and we had to pull out early. The Brown's camp base location had gotten completely flooded out. We scavenged a bunch of pallets and put our tents up more than a foot off the ground but still woke up submerged in brown water. It was a mess!

Hard to believe this was 17 years ago!

Man - good times! (of course minus the fumes and Harald getting sick...).

Great being back in the ClubGwagen community and getting out with my now much older kids on the PNW trails in gwagens.

Also - really appreciate the quick responses from AlanMcR / Thunderguy / Otiswesty. Correct cluster resolved the command errors on the silver G320. Just listed this and the 500GE here before I noticed this thread...
