Question which colnago

There is a blue colnago on ebay full camy record; it is in italy with shipping it will cost at least 800 bucks if I won the bid at 620. It is a vintage 1970's. A guy is selling a 1995 colnago decor with campy chorus for 800 and I can have it now. Both bikes are nice steel with cool paint jobs. I figure it is better to get the newer bike with more monern components even though they are chorus instead of record. This may not be enough detail, but if you have any thoughts, I would appreciate your input.

My opinion: Unless you're into retro bikes, get the newer one. Better to see the bike in person and check
it out rather than depend on pictures. I've owned a number of Colnago's and I see no good reason to
take a chance on an old model unless it's something very special.
