Or even a nice B23 / LH 2.0 car.
LH 2.2 is awesome. My '87 with 340K miles has gotten zero love in the decade I've owned it. Touch the starter and it roars to life. Like new compression. Uncanny. 1987 was a so-so year for wiring. Mine's been OK, but the insulation isn't as long wearing as the later cars.

It's actually functional as an airbag. A friend just had his '93 get smashed head on up to the A-pillar and the airbag actually did some good. Of course, I was in a pretty good collision in an '85 245 20 years ago... so I'm not sold.
