Exclamation '87 300SDL dilemma

ok. so I currently have a '79 240D w/ 228,000 that i purchased all of 3 months ago...
the car needs a restoration, but I'm a senior in HS & need to have a project that can double as a daily driver...
the car is great esp. w/ the 4 speed...
but the rust is starting to worry me when i'm driving it daily.
our local benz dealer is sitting on this 87 300sdl that was traded in also in august... its tripple grey && in amazing shape
the only rust is on the surface of the body unlike my car which has pan issues along with frame/wheel well rust.

the dealership wants $2500 for the car... && it drives freaking amazing...
but the issue is it has... :: gasp :: 528,696 miles on it (1 owner)
yes... I meant to hit a 5

interior is mint... only thing it needs right away is both front windows refuse to stay up... what ever that takes to fix the problem?!?

um... should I go for it just because its a piece of history, and fun while at it... or try and get it cheaper
or pass it up completely and hope my 240 survives w/o breaking in 2


please email me or IM me
