I'm in St. Paul, MN, and a lifelong lover of most things cars. I've tended to lean European Sports car (currently own a hot-rodded TR6 and a last of the breed original MINI Cooper), but have been a dyed in the wool classic FoMoCo personal as well. I'm seriously considering a MkII and need to know if I should seriously have my head examined? :-) To that end, are there basics details I should be looking for in checking out cars? I'm going to be purchasing on the lower $$ end of the spectrum, but hardly basket case examples as that's beyond my means and patience at this time.
Any bullet points would be greatly appreciated.
