Every 1980s Mercedes needs a new transmission.
Cost of this equals value of car.
Market recognizes this and prices the cars accordingly, i.e. ready to be totaled.
They're stricly cars for "enthusiasts," i.e folks willing to participate in these economics.
Yes, a new transmission is cheaper than a new car, but a new(er) car is always more exciting.
Only people owning these cars believe they're better than the new ones. Those who've owned the newer ones know better.
