It’s doubtful I would ever buy one because, well, I’m cheap, but I have a real weakness for Mercedes. As nice as the new ones are, though, I’ll take an older one any day. I must not be the only one, because Mercedes-Benz USA is making it easy for everyone to buy one. Next month, the company will be opening the new Mercedes-Benz Classic Center in Irvine, California, where you will be able to buy classic models of the cars. The store is modeled after a Classic Center in Stuttgart, Germany that has been a success since 1993.
Budget conscious buyers will be happy because models will be available starting at a bout $25,000. If you aren’t so constrained by dollars, Mercedes-Benz will happily take a million or two from you for some real classic eye candy. If they don’t have what you want, they will search for it. The shop will also offer appraisals of older Mercedes and restoration services.
