Good luck with your decision Mike-I can see there's not much pleasure to be gained from accessing the unaccessible and removing more and more to tackle this particular problem, with even more waiting in the queue behind that one. Owning and running cars should at least include a bit of pleasure for the time and effort and money put into them!
I am beginning to think along these lines.
Occasionally this type of thing comes up for Auction, hardly likely to depreciate much, and plenty of room to work on things should you wish/need to do so. Added to that, pootle around on sunny days, have lunch at a country/seaside pub/cafe and generally enjoy a bit of motoring in the summer. Thats not to say a yellow 1924 Citroen C-type would be much different in the fixing/running expense sense, but well worth it for the happy days out it would provide, and the heads it would turn, and the smiles it would put on faces.
This was up for auction in 2014 at an estimate of £4,000-£6,000
