My suggestion would be to (a) learn as much as you can by reading and going to look at a bunch of MBs, (b) troll the MBCA sites, forums, etc. for a car from an individual, and (c) get to know the difference b/w "a good one" and "an amazing one".
I think you'll find lots of good ones, but you really should be looking for something special - a two-owner car (possibly three), all original, well-treated its whole life, documentation showing its past, etc. I've found that you tend to fall in love with the "special" cars more than you do on just some "cool fintail".
