'Doug's Mercedes For Sale In Ireland' was the third album from African Car Reverser that reignited their career, stripping away the pop and disco sensibilities of the poor selling second album and going back to their garage roots.

It might well be in mint condition but for €32K you'd want to be able to drive it through the city center.  But I suppose if you like your Mercs and it is a vintage car of the yuppie era they'll get a few takers.
