Car Catcher: JDM-Spec C123 Benz Coupe

Photos courtesy Bring a Trailer

This left-hand-drive 1985 Mercedez-Benz 280 CE hails from Japan, a mecca for all sorts of automotive unicorns. It checks all the right boxes, from the Euro-spec bumpers and headlights down to the 182-horsepower, 2.8-liter inline-six. It comes in the best '80s Mercedes color scheme of Astral Silver over Galaxy Blue cloth. The car shows wear, but its current high-bid of only $4800 means that someone could be getting a great deal on a car whose values are only going up. If you're interested, hurry: There are only 5 hours left on this no-reserve auction at Bring a Trailer.

Nope, it went for $7000. Pretty good deal, considering.
