This next car comes as a tip from Cory who writes: This is the modern equivalent of the W123 and these W202 cars are all over Europe still to this day. Yup, the basic package of the W202 was rugged and durable, particularly when compared to the overly electronicated throw-away Daimler-Chrysler era cars. When the W202 becomes old enough to be collectable, expect oddball Euro imports like this one to demand a premium.

Tip from Carter.

Another day, another clean and nice car donated to a charity and sold via eBay…seriously, who looks at a car this nice and says “it is worth nothing to me other than a tax write-off.” The write-offs aren’t even that good anymore, since they closed the loop hole where you could declare anything you’d like […]
It is always interesting when car buyers/sellers get heaping piles of advice from internet back seat drivers and pundits. The advice is always well meaning and usually centers around adding value to the car, such as putting appropriate wheels on it, or suggesting an easy engine upgrade. In the case of a certain V8 swapped […]
We just couldn’t resist posting another vintage Mercedes and this time we are going to push the higher end of our budget with a 2-door.
