Back when I had coupes I used to get things from him. That was at least 15 - 20 years ago so it's been a long time. At the time he a lot of stuff for these cars and knew them pretty well.
I wrecked the cars I had due to rust and used a lot of the mechanical parts for 113's. I still have a lot of stuff left over but it's all used pieces for the most part.
 All of the parts for these cars are very exspensive with chrome being the worst and there's a lot of that on a 111. They're actually nicer cars than a 113 with the same drive train.

If you buy parts from John....don't be in any hurry!   I've been waiting two months for him to send me something for my 280SE 3.5.  While he hasn't charged me yet, I have practically begged him to send me my items.   I do believe him to be a good, honest person...just SLOOOOOW!
