It seems like folks on here love to buy cheap cars on Craigslist, because y'all know enough mechanics-wise to fix them if they should break. Cars on Craigslist tend to scare me, thus, I don't browse Craiglist for cars much. However, this evening, I finally waded in to the sea of bargain beaters, cool projects, and witty, grammatically incorrect ads that is the Omaha Metro Craigslist. Here's some of the stuff I found:
2003 Mercedes SL500- surprisingly cheap, even w/ high maintenance costs
Beautiful old SL560 (minus gold trim)
Jared Rose Bait (needs work)
And finally, the answer is always low-mileage Miata!
