Unlikely. Trading in a used entry level 1987 Corvette and then afterward still having a 90k plus car loan. But anything is possible if that’s a direction you may have chosen. If you are new to this, attending some local same manufacturer car club meetings can be beneficial. You can ask other owners and gain insights on era's pros and cons. And perhaps have someone go with you if nothing else than to have another set of eyes checking them out. That is a big plus, even shopping new, before taking a bigger plunge. This logic can be applied to any make of car you are looking at, new or vintage. Some clubs have tech nights. We would meet as a group and put cars up on lifts in owner's garages. And we did the same at a local car dealer sponsor of the club. Any year welcome. The reviewer on here could at least get ideas on where to look and who others use for repair. I went from being solo with driver quality cars for a while, and getting my feet wet the harder expensive lesson way. Doing some shows, meeting owners etc in clubs made it much easier to enjoy them and figure them out. Good luck.

I already own a 2000 Porsche 986 Boxster that I love but know better than to attempt any repairs on. And even though they are very different, I am really impressed with the way my 31 year old Vette handles; that's a whole lot of rubber put to the road, and it just sticks to it, very impressive... thanks.
