Fifty Shades of Brown: 1989 Mercedes 190E 2.6

Driving a classic car should be first and foremost enjoyable, but secondly and almost as important, transformative in that it takes you back to a time when that car was present on the road - today's car should theoretically do both of those things quite nicely.

This 1989 Mercedes 190E 2.6 found in Elmwood Park, NJ with an asking price of $4,999 comes with the uprated 2.6L M103 (boasting a 30hp step up from its M102 predecessor) which brings power to a respectable 160hp, should be plenty of fun either as a weekend cruiser or a daily workhorse. Finished in two-tone Light Ivory (623) over a Brazil (173) MB-Tex, this W201 is a fitting color combination to transport you right back into 1989 when you could have any color you wanted as long as it was brown.

Clocking just over 71,000 miles, this 190 presents very nicely and should be as good a candidate as any for an inexpensive fun time behind the wheel. These have been known to go forever, and with parts readily available we think this should be at the top of your list if you are looking for a second or even third car to have in your stable.
