The feel and sound gets old after a while - about ten years each car for me :-)

I think all of us who have had old and new versions, especially at the same time, appreciate the newer versions. But I'd say go for the old one if you've never had it. You won't likely make money, like so many other things that's not the reason to get an old car, but unless you get ripped off or are unlucky in abuse, you shouldn't lose much. The trick is not to go into denial about the costs - enough people go overboard you can often find real nice stuff at reasonable costs, as long as you keep away from inflated markets. Some of the show car people are just nuts, arguing about whether there should be welds showing above the 911 license plate holder and what-all. Of course, if you've had and know what you want and your expectations are in line with reality, all the better.
