I'm new to this forum and I think I need a reality check. I'm a full-time student living in Berkeley, California
. I own a 2006 Mini-Cooper S which I love, but I recently passed a '66 Mustang coupe the other day and it reminded me of my childhood watching my dad work on his and now I have the bug...bad.
Things have started breaking on my lovely Mini, which is not cheap seeing as how it's owned by BMW. I have convinced myself that at least repairs wouldn't be a surprise on a 40+ year old car. My friends all think I should go for it.
I'm a full-time student now with a very limited budget and would appreciate a reality check or just your opinions. My dad has owned MANY classic cars and I know what a money-pit one can become.
