Better Than A Van: 1983 Mercedes-Benz 250 Limousine

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again; if you need a minivan, get a limo. You get seats for 8 people and none of the mind numbing styling and van handling that you get with the typical vanilla domestic market minivan. Granted, an 80s Benz 250S is not a Lamborghini, but it is certainly more interesting to drive than a Toyota Sienna. Plus, this one has an 80s vintage cell phone mounted up front and a stereo mounted where the rear passengers can control the tunes. Stereo controls in the back wouldn’t be annoying with little kids at all. Find this 1983 Mercedes-Benz 250 Limousine offered for $12,500 in Petaluma, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
