Consider Classics over technology
March 31, 2017
Newer cars are expected to perform and have all the "bells and whistles." While most are attracted to the "new car smell" and high-performance vehicles, I am enjoying my classic daily driver. Easy to work on if you can watch videos and follow instructions. If you are lucky you can find a classic for less than $5,000. The one thing that stands out to me is that the more money I put into it the more the value rises, unlike most new cars. If you are in a higher tax bracket and vehicles like this do not float your boat, then more power to you. I have put over 2,000 miles on my 79 450 SEL and maybe $300 in maintenance and repairs. Worried about finding old Mercedes parts? Well just go to Ebay etc. I find parts for less than $60 including water pumps, oil filters and so on. I would sell it to with the right cash offer and probably just do it all over again.
