In a town about 30 miles away there is a sweet little 71' 2002. I talked to the owner who said he would reluctantly give it up for $3,000. It is a light orange color with a new paint job. The guy owns a body shop so it is pretty nice. My concern is that my dad won't like it. He hates old cars because he doesn't like to get his hands dirty. I have a friend with a 76' 02 that runs great, but my dad thinks it will have a lot of problems even though I told him 02 engines are practically bullet proof. How do I convince him that I know enough about working on this type of car to own one? I'm very mechanically minded and enjoy getting my hands dirty. I also know about a 02 parts magazine. I'm done convincing myself, how do I convince him?
