Which should I weigh heavier? Age or mileage?

I’m debating getting a ’91 with 100K miles Seems to run good.
For the same price I could get one about 5 years older, but half the mileage. (example.

I am NOT a mechanic, so “easy to fix” is much less important than, “rarely breaks down.” I’d rather have fewer, but more expensive, repairs.

    I’ll be following your search for this with some interest, Hal, since I have a business idea that’s not terribly different, revolving around a retrofitted stepvan/box truck.
