Hell I replaced a radiator hose and slapped some epoxy on a hole in a radiator fin while pulled over at a rest stop on the Kansas Turnpike once. Not something I would be nearly as comfortable doing with my Saab.

To me most midrange modern cars really haven't made enough tangible advances to make them a clear cut choice over a "classic" that I can fix myself if needed. Now if you have a car with a backup camera and assisted parking and all that jazz then I can see your point for sure.
MY first car was a 66 impala, piss yellow with a black vinyl top. 283 power slide with a Q-jet 4 bbl
cragar 5 spokes air shock black vinyl interior

Gawd I miss that car
