Vintage Benz (or others) owners?
DH and I have been getting by with one car for the past 4 months since he began a new position at work. He based from our home office and flies all over the country. The only traveling and/or driving he does is to the airport. That being the case, we decided we'd just have one car and I'd drive him to/from 2X a week (company pays for gas and mileage).
Now that the kids are back in school and involved in activities 5X a week, it's getting harder to do so we're looking at buying a used 2nd car. It'll get about 100 miles a week at most. DH figures this is a good chance to get a impractible little car, either a 1973-1979 Benz convertible or coupe.
We've had fun cruising Ebay for the right one. This isn't a really expensive car (we're keeping it under 4K) and it doesn't need to be museum quality. DH worked on F/14s for 8 yrs, so he's up for the mechanical upkeep.
I just wonder what we're getting ourselves into. Any other vintage car owners out there? Benz folks esp
