In this VINWiki video, we catch up with a story that spells out quite the interesting ride. When Alex Palmeri of Legit Street Cars was searching for the ideal machine, it would be one that needed work. Normally, people searching for these mechanic specials are looking to get a deal. I’m sure that a good deal was part of the equation but it seems like Alex was more interested in buying a car to make YouTube videos of. Therefore, he would come across the perfect Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG.

Now, the way that this story unfolds, the original owner thought that the machine needed some major work. However, when diagnosing the machine, eventually, Alex would come to the conclusion that this story wasn’t that true. Instead, he would be able to easily fix it for about $100. This is actually a lot more common than one might think. However, the inverse could be true as well. It’s probably more common that someone thinks a problem is small and ends up being massive.

By following along with the video below, we hear about the highs and lows in the situation. I guess that it turns out that Alex ended up getting quite the steal with this machine that only needed some minimal work.
