Title: Need Help
Post by 87442 on Mar 29th, 2011, 6:58pm

Found an 87 442 in absolute mint condition with only 30 K original miles. One owner.  8k

I always liked these cars and really would like to purchase-- so here lies the dilema.

Old car vs new? Its 24 years old and although in great shape, can I realistically expect to drive it for many years to come? I would drive it daily- weather permitting, because I just feel cars should be driven.

Can I get parts for it, if I need to?
Also, gas mileage vs new car mileage. Posted mpg on the original sheet says 18/25-- I know it depends on many conditions.

Forget a small car-- just dont like em- and dont feel they are safe.

What do you guys think? 8-)
