I bought a new one in 1970, had a 340, looked like the one in the movie Vanishing Point.

Panzerwagon considers most of them light snacks.
Considering a c63

Was looking around for...well to waste time...and found a C300 with a 6 spd manual sport package and low miles.
So I looked some more and I found a C63 with really low miles.

Things that make you go hmm...

Good idea.

Panzerwagon has the DCT thingy. No manuals for me.

What year C63?

When we had the S55 the spousal unit used to love sitting in the back, all that legroom as it was an "L" model.

With Panzerwagon being an E class, her legs are more restricted in the back. And she sits in the back because my son sits up front.

I've never been in a C class but I'd assume it's smaller still.

Yes.
My family is not one of "Big" people. My son is the tallest at maybe 5'10 and I am an inch shorter.
We would fit nicely...as it would be my DD and my wife still has her Grand Cherokee.
It would be a 100 hp increase and a 600 lb decrease over the SHO with a return to N/A V8 and RWD vs a sidewinder Twin Turbo V6 and AWD.
Not that the SHO doesn't surprise someone on a daily basis.

Didn't read far enough... Good work.

Panzerwagon had 53 K Km and was a 2012.

You find one in good kit, it's worth it.

Because I got mine from a dealer I've still got a warranty.

I'm 6'2" and I can sit in the back. But it ain't first class legroom.

Brent moves his seat forward a bit if Momma is in the car and we abide.

Until she mentions the windows not being tinted as much as the S55 and.........

What did you do/decide?
Did not pull the trigger, it was too far away for me to go check out with my schedule right now.
I will keep my eyes peeled for another, or see if that one is still available here in a little bit. I still have a few months on my SHO.
And I love that forced induction.

Would you have been able to modify at all? Not that you needed to mind you.
Yes. Minor mods.
Tune, CAI.
Those are cons to me that I cannot do more. And part of the reason I may buy it. I know it has been well cared for, performs fantastically and has huge untapped potential.
9" rims with 275's, down pipes, cat back, CAI, Tune.
I already pace Scat Pack Dodges with 470 HP while giving up 100 hp due to the turbo torque curve.

If I can't do it easily I'm not into changing things up anymore.

So I now buy them ready to rock!
