Lookin to buy a mercedes ADVICE please!

1995 W124 E200
CL: 1995 Mercedes Benz E300 Diesel

Video: video 2012 09 10 19 09 32 - YouTube

No moisture in trunk, behind/under wheel wells good, axel seals felt spoungy, but cracked. Power was not quite what i expected. Shifted nice.

1980 W116 300D
CL: Must have removed, wierd, Owner claims "About 20,000 mi. on new MB crate motor. OM617" 130k on body
Clean Engine
Corrosion under the battery
Dirty line in middle of pic, oil line to oil radiator IE: "The oil is fed to it's own radiator, right next to the coolant radiator. The oil return pipe ruptured on the highway, and the engine seized up."
is this manufacturer seam seal? or rust seal?

Seals felt spoungy, slightly cracked
more seal

Small spot of rust not pictured on front driver door, will try for more pics, tranny good, shifted great, R/D/R/D

What do you all think? im getting records from the same mechanic for both cars today, convenient that previous owners went to the same mechanic. Any TROUBLE spots i should be aware of on either car? both have around 130k, so id imagine routine maintenance would be the same.
