What better way to celebrate Black Friday than with a car that carries the work “black” in its name? Here’s a 2008 CLK 63 AMG Black Edition up for grabs, brought to our attention from our reader Den. This is the kind of car that will help you get your gift shopping done in record time. The CLK 63 AMG Black Series was a 507 horsepower beast, akin to a DTM car for the street. With a removed rear seat, adjustable suspension and wide fenders, this car was all business. With so few sold here in the US, this Black Series for sale in San Francisco with just under 40,000 miles represents a rare opportunity.

If ever there was a car made for Miami Beach, this Volkswagen Karmann Ghia would fit the bill. It’s pastel paintwork just pops and as much as I don’t like white wall tires, they compliment the look well. In a sea of drab automotive colors, mint green is a perennial favorite of mine. It makes me yearn for some of the bright colors we would see on 1950s Detroit iron. Sure, it might not seem current to some, but it certainly is interesting. This particular Karmann Ghia has undergone a complete restoration and would prove to be a unique choice to help stand out from the rest of the air-cooled VW crowd.

It’s not every day a car gets edged out of a particular marketplace due to legislation, but you are looking at one example right here. The Volkswagen Type 2 pickup. After World War II, France and West Germany placed a duty on imported US chicken. The US government’s response: tax a bunch of goods imported from Europe, including light duty pickups. Thus, in 1971, it would be the end of the road for this workhorse of a people’s car, the likes of which would never been seen in dealers this side of the Atlantic again. Thankfully, the T1 and T2 VW vans are a bit of a cult car, with the pickup variants enjoying a bit of the popularity. As a result, it’s not terribly uncommon to come across one of these trucks stateside. This 1969 Double Cab pickup has undergone a complete restoration, which begs the question: do you dare mess up a good thing and test its utility?

The Eurovan may be the least-loved generation of VW vans, but it’s grown on me. Similarly, non-poptop campers have become a new object of desire, bringing simplicity and sleek looks while still providing significant capability. This teal van has a convertible bed out of the rear seats as well as a table in the middle, with a rare drivetrain combo in the inline-5 and manual. All told, it looks like a great deal to be able to tackle all kinds of adventures for well under $10k.
