and thisDon't let this sour experience with old cars ruin your taste for them. Old cars can be fun and rewarding, you just have to be smart about purchasing the right one. I've bought my fair share of shit cars, but I still love older cars and plan to own many more in my life.
This is how I justify the cost of the Discovery. It's a toy and I have more reliable transport when needed (the train, for work), you have the Yararse.(I can also remind myself that if it was a modern hobby car it'd be costing considerably more if it went wrong.)
