Found a nice 1973 Porsche 914 that is a great driver; looks good, some nice upgrades. Not a perfect car, but pretty sharp. 2.0 motor.
Also found a 1974 BMW 2002 owned by the owner of the body shop I use. The interior is in great condition, and according to him all the mechanicals are sorted out. The car has all of the trim off and has had the body prepped and is in the paint booth but not painted yet. I asked about the car and if I could basically choose a color, to which he said yes. I will go see that car this Monday.
But between the two I'm looking for insight and advice. I know, rust, rust, rust, look out for rust. But in general has one aged better than the other? I'm smitten by the 914's more exotic look and targa top, but the thought of getting a good running 2002 right out of paint in my choice of colors is pretty tempting also.
Figure either or; the price is about the same (5-6k range)
