Oil leak....

Background info is it sat 7 years, got around 112,500 on it maybe. It does run, no oil in the coolant vice versa.. Didn't change the fluids yet, because not sure if it's going to the metal yard soon. Starting to get rusty, so if this title doesn't work out I'm gonna scrap it. Just would like an idea if it does work out and I just run it into the ground. Have no idea what's been replaced on it before it came into our possession except oil changes up to 80,000 miles. Just a $1600,00 car we got from Philly. 97 C230 by the way

I mean, that engine does look pretty abnormally crusty, so the rest of the car can't look much better. If its running pretty good, and those oil leaks aren't unmanageable, drive it until it dies. At 112k, a mercedes engine should have tons of life left in it, unless its been severely neglected. You should some use out of it.
