3000 miles a year? If the thing had a manual choke, you'd never push it in  :grin:

You can do it with a few options, but not many...

Well if you want an R then you want an R, but it wouldn’t be my choice for a 3000 mile a year sub £40k package.
I’d forego the drag racing capabilities and get something that would be a bit more fitting for the limited use and budget restriction. Something that had a 45 on the end but wasn’t a Mercedes. Or even aClubsport with a few options which would be well under budget.
But that’s just me.

Prior to that a couple dozen other warmed over VWs

You can fix that, with a Stanley knife.
