Reliable Old European
I am looking for a fun classic-ish European car, for around $3k, that beyond regular maintenance (oil, brakes, tires), I would only have to put in about $700 per year in other upkeep/fixing. I'm thinking something along the lines of a Mercedes or Porsche from the late 70's, 80's or early 90's. Preferably something that is on the edge of going classic, and that is worth keeping up and hanging on to for the next 10-20 years, first as a daily driver, and then later as a collector.
Unfortunately, I have little knowledge of European cars, of this year (I'm most familiar with newer Asians), and was wondering if you had any ideas on cars to research?
