Age old dilemna

Whether to put more $$ into my '86 300E or....? I've owned it since '89, now with 182,000 miles and I've never regretted keeping it "nice". Within the last three years I've done front struts, rear shocks, a/c compressor with conversion to new "freon", rear suspension work, yada yada yada. Now, I'm looking at two front springs (one broken), engine belt tensioner, rear control arms, .....and other work totaling about $1,500. None of this addresses an engine using 1 qt per 1000, and a tranny that leaks a bit. Have I reached the point of no return? I would love to be able to rationalize keeping it.

Your thoughts. Help!
