Risky Buy Of The Year: 1996 Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG

This car is an interesting piece of used German metal. And I’ll start by admitting that I had the pleasure of owning and daily driving a used C36 AMG for a few years…and it wasn’t a bad car. The AMG tuned 3.6 liter M104 inline-6 is melodious instrument and it belted out 286 horsepower into a 5 speed slushbox that snapped off shifts like a SIG Sauer. It didn’t have the same steering feedback of an E36 M3 (had one of those too) and it wanted you to drive it more like a muscle car than a sports machine…but it wasn’t a bad vehicle at all, and I would recommend one to someone looking for a cheap future classic from Stuttgart. However…would I recommend one that needs to be towed home because the key was broken and the paint is covered in a vinyl wrap? Only if the price was…wow. That’s cheap. Yeah. This is a strong buy. Find this 1996 Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG offered for $1500 in Denver, CO via craigslist.
