what to buy

        I've been wanting to buy a turbo quattro for six years (since I
bought my 86 5000s Avant) now in my mid-life crisis my wife has agreed. I've
found three 5000CD quattro wagons in local area and near my price range.
There are as follows:

        86 brown wagon 106K km cloth interior, one owner from Montreal (back
east car), no service records, poor paint (looks good but lots of touch-ups
- over spray on wheels) all electrics seem to work,small signs of rust,
Dealer asking $12,999 (Can) + GST 7%

        87 black wagon 106k km showing (est 140k intermitt speedo), grey
cloth interior, one window switch not working, ABS warning light on, noisy
steering rack (replaced two weeks ago), poor paint (bush scratches),
passenger seat heater intermit., no rust, computer clock reading 00:00:00
most service records, A/C works questionable , private asking $10,000 (Can)

        88 red wagon, 166k km, black with grey inserts leather interior,
very clean, new steering rack, recently replaced exhaust manifold (one
piece), all service records, clean , good paint, private $13,999 firm 

I want the red one but it's just out of my price range and i think its too
high anyways but what the list's view of which one i should go for ie. pro
and cons of each year
