Stick It to the Man: 1997 Mercedes-Benz SL500

Who doesn't love a good story about "stickin it to the man," right?  Unless you are the man, in which case you'll have loads of money to cry yourself to sleep with...anyway, I can't think of a better way to "stick it to the man" than to buy something for $10k that he paid almost $100k for when new!  Like this 1997 Mercedes-Benz SL500 offered for $13,400 here on eBay buy-it-now or make-offer located in Ford Pierce, FL with 1 day to go.

  1. Looks like the owner has perfected the Florida-Certified Pull-In Parking Technique, wherein the driver continues forward progress until just before the scraping sound stops, indicating that the tires have nearly self-chocked on the concrete parking block...and the lower air dam is now in need of surgery.

    These were the last good looking SL in my opinion. Blocky and formidable.
