A 30+ year old mercedes that needs some help or my Civic which had one prior owner who lived by the beach and neglected some pretty basic maintanence in my eyes (minor rust and terrible paint).
So they're both candidates for restoration or at least all those fun unseen costs.

However, I have no real problems with a spartan interior. As long as a vehicle is mechanically sound and not rotting away on me, I think I'll be cool.
