Buying a used car

I've got 3 muscle car and none are running..LOL
The baseball season is here and the kids need to get to practice so I'm looking at used cars...LOL
A 1997 BMW 740 IL and a 97 Mercedes S320...
The BMW has 230k on it the S320 120k.. Drove the 740IL... flawless.. except for a few door dings the car is a solid 2+.. maybe a 1 in some peoples book. Never been crashed, original paint mostly looking good.. needs to be cut...
The Mercedes is 1000 more in price.. But the 740IL has caught my eye. triple black car with BMW wire spoked wheels... I don't even think I'm going to look at the S320. It wont have the hp of the 740il.. post pics when I get the car home.... Its a 5 person trunk easily...
I want this 39 Buick Super Eight thats around the corner from me but the bmw is a more dependable driver. The wife would shoot me if I brought home a 1939 4 door that looks like the Godfather should be stepping out of it...hahahahaha Its awesome though, I'm going to buy it sooner or later.
Collection is growing... 99 Camaro SS, 79 z28, 1970 Plymouth SS, now the 97 740 IL and will acquire the 39 Super Eight... I don't like new cars although I would like to have the ZL1 and the Volt. I would thin the heard down to make room I guess
