Thinking about jumping in....

Hello, my name is Lou. I have been interested, from the sidelines, for about 10years in getting a 560 SL. I have owned 15 or more classic Mustangs, from beaters to a restored, original matching numbers, '65 2+2. I have done most of the work on these myself, so I do know the way around the engine compartment, underneath, and where the ATM machines are. :-)

I have been poking around reading the good, bad and the ugly about the SL's. So while excited to be in the market, I am not sure about the kind of the funds needed. I found a nice local car for sale, rides nice, handles well, has all but the last 25k miles of service records (newer owner did his own work on it).

I see one post that says drive it and it will last forever, than the next saying he has 20k in it over the cost of the car. So, tell me straight, I can take it, should I make the jump? What can I expect?

Great site, by the way.
