Today's amusing craigslist 'bargain'

1985 Mercedes Benz

You'll probably have to jack it up to get the back doors open, but hey, for $4500 you can't go wrong...

Well, $450 might be closer to reality.

enjoy.

I think you guys are forgetting that this car has tinted windows and heated front seats - $$ add-ons/options.

That's the easiest to see through 5% tint I've ever seen. It's also not as dark on the front. I though it was 5% all around??
