Help Me Find My next Classic Car!
Today, we’re trying something a bit different and we’re opening up the floor to a reader with his own dilemma. It’s on many enthusiasts’ minds: what should I buy? What are the pros and cons of each? Can I get help from other enthusiasts?? David B, of Canada, wrote in with an interesting question. What car should he buy?
“Petrolicious, I love your site and I wasn’t really into classic cars until I found your site and now I’m hooked.
“I’m currently trying to find a classic that fits my style and budget. I’ve narrowed it down to a Porsche 914, Datsun 240Z or a fairly uncommon car here in North America: the Puma GT Tubarao.
“I know the pros and cons of the 914 and 240Z, but the Puma has really peaked my interest. I know it’s not a super fast car but it looks fantastic and could one day with some cash possibly carry a Porsche flat 6 in the back. My friends are trying to steer me towards one of the other two due to the fact that Brazilian cars have a bad reputation for quality and to ship one here takes time, effort, and cash to import.
Thanks, and I look forward to your reply.”
