Those are actually awesome. I had one - if you could find one that runs well then you're all set! The body will rot but the rest of the car stands the test of time. For the ultimate in simplicity pick up an early 80s (W123) 240D with a 4-speed manual. 75 (?) hp i think and 33secs to 60mph.

As far as reliability goes...yea i dont think you'll care much because you'll be having so much fun.
that's how those 240 owners end up in trees

you are so freakin JDM!
