1990 Mercedes-Benz 190E - £800

You didn't think we'd leave this out did you? The 190E is one of our favourite classics and while we love the W124, the 190E is more affordable at the moment. That said, prices are rising fast and there are fewer and fewer around at this money. That means you'll have to make a few compromises. So while this 1.8-litre model looks pretty tidy in the photos - albeit in Berlin taxi beige - it does have the usual 190E rust patches on the arches. Aside from that, the front tyres are oddly the wrong profile, causing them to catch on the wheelarches. But with an MoT until August 2017, it still looks like a lot of Merc for the money.

Had L reg one with a sun roof and loved it . Sadly sold it in 2007 for £350 silly me- should have kept it in a barn! MW
