Are 1980s' 911 Targas a good investment?

I am looking to trade my 2004 BMW Z4 3.0iSE (with 55,500 miles) for a 1986 Porsche 911 Targa with 129,000 miles on the clock. The car is £17,500 - will it be a good investment?

An air-cooled 1986 911 could be an investment if the car is right. But you need to get it very carefully inspected by a Porsche expert to be sure. 129k is a lot of miles under its wheels. See:

I have £10,000 to spend on a modern classic convertible. Could you advise on the most 'collectable' car on the market? I was considering either a Mk1 Audi TT or Mercedes-Benz SL.
I am thinking of buying a Mercedes-Benz SL280 as future classic. There are some low mileage ones around, but can low mileage be an issue?
