I agree with John

If you go for a 140 try to get a 1995 or newer(which I don't think you can for 25K)
But if you go with an older 140 unless you get it REALLY cheap don't buy one without a warranty.The car is very complex and the repairs are hurtful. Mine has had a myriad of AC issues to the tune of 6K(warranty..thank god!!)
I have owned 124 and 126 models and the 140 is definitely a step above those...but at a price
The best bet for drivability and economy at that price range is a mid's 90's 124. You lose some conveniences,luxury and ride...but I think the dollar difference justifies it over the 140
