Opinions: can an 87 560SEL be practical transportation?
This is my first post and I hope some of you will share your opinions. My current special interest car, don't laugh, is an 83 Chrysler woody convertible. A fun car on Summer weekends but I wouldn't take it on a much of a trip. I was looking at an 87 560 SEL which appears to be in superb condition with under 50K miles. I'm not looking for a daily driver but am wondering whether a 24 year old car, even one as renowned as Mercedes Benz, could be safe, comfortable and reasonably reliable for normal usage or if it would be more reasonable to consider it a vintage Sunday driver.
