Mid Week Match-Up: Best Car For Summer

It is Wednesday, which means time for the Mid Week Match-Up, but it is also summer, so combine the two and you get -- the best cars for driving around in the summer for less than $10k.



There are two things you need in a good summer car -- convertible top, functioning AC, power, style....whoa, that's more than two...irregardless, for my money I'm going to buy a used SL class Mercedes-Benz like this 1990 Mercedes-Benz 500SL  here on eBay offered for $8,500 buy-it-now located in Los Angeles, CA.  Not a bad price for a 322 horsepower V8 powered German classic with 42k miles on the odo.

  2. A buddy in OKC just bought a black 500SL with just over 100K miles for $4K! Definitely the buy of the year. Bought it from the shop that did his service work on his other MB's. Now, the trick is not to spend a dime on it and just drive it and enjoy it.

  4. A real summer car is one that will give you a fun ride, but may leave you by the side of the road - but that's okay since it's summertime. http://www.ebay.com/itm/1975-Triumph-TR-6-/162552981704?_trksid=p2141725.m3641.l6368

    And please, with all due respect to the illustrious author and this great site, let's all try to outlaw the word "irregardless", just use "regardless". We live in a society.
