Well trust me, driving a very very old mercedes is not cool..Well from where Im from, people tend to call them hoppdies...Hmm 2500, try looking into a civic I guess...Not sure what you can get for 2500, maybe you shouldnt look at the looks, and more of miles and stuff...Because for 2500 you should be worried about how long its gona last, inteast of how cool it is, u know..

I say we buy all go and buy the g35x..

For your first car, just find a, sorry for the language but, just a pretty shitty car. Usually the first car someone owns always gets wrecked.

But wtf, you say you're poor but you're looking at Mercedes and New Jeep's..?

Same car as mine just 3 years older. To tell you the truth $350 for that car is a steal. However, if I was in your position, I wouldnt get it. Hell, I wouldnt have my car. If ANYTHING at all goes wrong, (which being that old its bound too) its going to be very expensive.. Because everything is special in it, and even takes special tooks to work on.

In your position I would look at a 6th gen honda civic if you like to upgrade (bodykit, lights, intakes exause etc). For a first car though, thats not smart.

Smartest idea for a new car would be a new suv. Why? Because its cheap to insure, and will win against a car in a crash, and in any crash your much more protected.

Look into the following

Nissan Pathfinder 1988-1997
Toyota 4runner 1988-1997
Ford expolorer 1990 +

I mean dont get some tiny thing like a jeep liberty, but get a decent old pathfinder, and your set to go, or the 4 runner, just because awesome reliable car, that goes anywhere, lol trust me, anywhere, (my friend has awesome system in his, and we were just goin around 4x4ing with the music blasting showing off, was really tight)

I mean ford, eh, but you cant beat the looks of the old 4runners (or new for that matter).

4runner ftw in my opinon here, but the pathfinder is just as reliable and kicks just as much ass, not much of a different between body shapes either, just the older 4runners, you can take off the back top, and you cant with the pathfinders

i cant explain just right, but the 4runner... man there is just something about it that makes you love it, lol..

edit-
hell no

no way that benz is right the 190's are only 4cylinder, that says 6, and anything that old will have well over 150k miles, i mean my 1991 has like 159k. so no way that has 25k... dont even think about that car, lol

Yeah, I can see you guys are really hurting for money

Personally, I wouldnt ever drive an GM car, unless it was given to me. Like literally I didnt have to pay for any of it. Because I would NEVER pay for a junk car like that. They wont last past 100k miles. Thats why Nissan, and Toyotas are the only way to go. Long lasting, great made cars.
