'53 Chevy Bel Air sedan vs. '68 Porsche 912?

Hey guys! I'm currently looking for a car, and I have always wanted a '53 Bel Air sedan. Surprise, I've been offered one at a good price - as well as a '68 912. My question is about gas milage. The '53 gets roughly 20 mpg, and the 912 gets about 30. 912 requires a new suspension pan, Bel Air needs a paint job and rattles a bit.
For regular use, which one will be better? Obviously the Porsche has the better mileage, but I've wanted a '53 Bel Air for ages.
Edit: whoops, looks like I need to clarify! I love them both, but the '53 was my first car-love. It's not all about the gas milage, but when it comes right down to it and I have to choose between them it gains importance.
