I personally enjoy a little work and I will admit you need to know what your looking at when buying .
however in my experience spending more money doesn't necessarily get anything better!!
This obviously depends on so many variable factors though.
Buy on age and condition is great advice and I totally agree, but my no means assume anything better just because of the asking price!
I think its better advice to say be cautious don't spend all you have on the first one. Just in case its not for you!
