Volvo convertibles are very nice. They are safe, stylish, and hard to find used. So, when a customer asks for a $30,000 Volvo convertible, I tell them about the list of people I have at my desk that keeps getting longer. Used hard top Volvo C70 convertibles are hard to find under $30k. But...
...this morning as I was walking back from Speedway with my wake up cappuccino, I passed a nice looking hard top convertible that might fill in the gap until the price of Volvo hard tops drops (no pun intended). It was a 1999 Mercedes SLK230 roadster.
This two door hard top convertible is quite the looker. It's Mercedes version of the Mazda Miata (if I can say that without getting into trouble). It' a small luxury convertible with enough bells and whistles to keep most people happy throughout the year. And while you might think that a Mercedes would be a costly purchase, you might be surprised that we are offering the convertible for a reasonable $17,990.
