80s G as daily driver?

If I were to purchase a G from the 1980s (300GD would be ideal) would it be usable as a daily driver? I know that I wouldn't hesitate to drive an 83 300D as a daily driver after it got it's initial maintanance checkup, but I don't know how different the Gs are. Are things like axle seals and the like totally worn out after 15-20 years, or are they built like other Merecdes of the period?

I'd appreciate any thoughts that you have.

If your commute doesn't require you to travel much over 60MPH you should do fine, they aren't know for speed, or at least the 300GD's where... There is a forum member here, that lives in Canada that has a 300GD, and I believe it is used as a daily driver.
