Sometimes less is more. Just because you can throw everything on the car, doesn’t mean you should. At a point, there are too many designs and too many colors to even take in and it becomes a jumbled mess. Today’s car, a 1999 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet, might be one of those. It starts off great with a wonderful shade of Ocean Jade Metallic and then goes all downhill from there. You’ll see what I mean.

Crazy to think that $20,000 isn’t considering a large sum of money for a car anymore, but it will still buy you a handful of really cool used stuff as long as you are okay with it being 20 years old. Hard to wrap my head around the fact that the R230 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is in fact that old, but thankfully it doesn’t look its age. Today’s car, a 2003 SL500 up for sale in Chicagoland, brings a whole lot of flash with its Mars Red paint, but thankfully you can drive away while still being under that $20,000 limit.

I’m always curious about how much of a “project” people are willing to endure. Naturally, this becomes just a math problem really fast with almost everyone undervaluing their time. However, sometimes our ego gets the best of us and we think we can fix things much easier, and a lot of times cheaper, than it actually ends up being in reality. Today’s car, a 2002 Mercedes-Benz SL500 up for sale in California, is one of the “projects.”

Back again with a car that I’m unsure how even rolled off the assembly line solely based on the odd color combination. This 2011 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet is finished in the smooth Orient Red Metallic over .. Metropol Blue leather? Yes, this is a dark red over dark blue car and I suppose it isn’t too crazy, but why just not go with black? Something different I suppose. The good news is that it isn’t all that expensive.

Just when you think you hit are ready to swing for a home run, here comes a curve ball in the dirt. Today’s car, a 1986 Mercedes-Benz 300SL up for sale in Italy, is one of those curve balls in the dirt. Maybe more than one.
This car had all the ingredients on the surface to be ideal for me. A Euro-spec car in a rare green color, a brown leather interior, and a five-speed manual transmission paired with the M103 inline-six. Then everything fell apart once I looked a little closer at it.
