Why can't other automakers sell classic cars like this?!
Mercedes-Benz has something special for its classic car buyers and sellers. Called the All Time Stars, buyers can see cars for sale and make purchases in-person at the Mercedes-Benz Museum. Mercedes says that "a team of sales consultants are on hand to provide detailed information and extensive descriptions of the vehicles in order to offer as much transparency as possible." According to the German automaker, the All Time Stars program's goal is "to extend the brand's executive quality commitment to the purchase of classic cars."
Each car has a 160-item checklist for inspection so that the consultants know what's been done to the car. All of the classic cars are divided into three branches. The Premium Edition is for cars that are in "rare original condition with very few miles on the clock and vehicles that have been lovingly restored by the experts at Mercedes-Benz Classic." The Collectors Edition is for cars in "excellent condition both technically and visually." And the Drivers Edition is for "vintage vehicles and modern classics suitable for everyday driving and for people who want to tinker." We think other automakers should do something like Mercedes-Benz's All Time Stars.
