In Reply to: 3.0 coupe vs. 2002 Advice?? posted by laldog on March 08, 2000 at 20:33:17:
I also have been a long time 02 owner and several years ago I had the oppoertunity to buy a 71 2800cs and a 73 Bavaria that had been in long term storage here in So Cal. The coupe has some minor rust that I saw and after doing some homework, if you see some rust on a coupe, there is lot more than you can't see. I passed on the coupe after I discovered what body and trim parts go for. Coupes are toys for rich people, if you buy it, you better have deep pockets. I bought the rust free Bavaria instead, same mechanicals as the coupe, but not as sexy.
