comment Repair very old car or buy newer used car?
I agree with the other two comments - it's too opinion-based to be answerable. Personally the heavy rust on your existing car would put me off - fixing rust with filler is only ever going to be a short-term bodge, so it'll probably need more attention next year...

comment Why check oil when engine is at operating temperature?
It's generally considered bad form to open your first post by claiming an experienced mod's answer is BS - but kudos for immediately saying why! ;) You are partly right in that the oil does expand when hot, but allowing those few minutes doesn't allow ALL of the oil to flow back to the sump - some will be left coating the moving parts of the engine (by design - a dry engine is a very bad thing, and most of the wear on a typical engine occurs during the first minute or so after starting from cold, as the oil starts to circulate)
