Of course, being a Mercedes, her window seals do leak, but a garage or tarp take care

Of course, I ask "Why not fix the window seals, maybe??"
Of course, window seals in any car can leak if they need replacement.

I would bet the water is coming from another source than simply the window seals. If the windows are "up", they can't leak enough to be much of a problem, at least while parked. I bet the rear window seal is bad, and maybe a few other "normal" sources of leaks.
The seller's suggestion tells me what I need to know about hand the car.....stay away!

Reality check-
I know that there is nothing more expensive than a cheap mercedes, but honestly, how many '87 300TD's do you see for sale anywhere ? I'd give it a look just becuase of its rarity (I am assuming that "North bay" is in califoria somewhere...)
