Go for it! I had a chance to buy a pristine '60 convertible for $10K twenty years ago and regret that I didn't do it. I drove a '57 Sedan de Ville daily for a few years. Worked like a champ except for the vacuum operated windshield wipers. Oh ... and the four months of down time waiting for body parts after I was t-boned (plus they had to send the bumper to Kansas City for rechroming ... wouldn't fit in any tank around here). Barely felt the bump and the other guy's car was in pieces all over the road.
