Sell my 03 cooper s for a 69' w114 diesel? Advice wanted!
I've recently paid off my 03 mini and have been wanting to get into something bigger. I've always had a special place in my heart for Mercedes, and have grown and obsession with the 69-70~ ish bodies.
My question is, should I sell my mini (selling for 7k) to purchase the Mercedes I've found ($3000). 112000 original miles, everything works, starts right up, 7/10 interior. 8/10 exteior. It would be my daily driver. I know that owning an older car has a negative stigma when it comes to reliability.
Any thoughts, advice, and first hand experiences would help me decide and is much appreciated.
