300d Buying question

I've been looking hard to find a nice 300d to use as a long-term daily drive. I have seen a number with 200-300k miles in the $2000-$5000 price range. Recently, I came across a well-kept, single-owner euro 1985 300d with 95k miles. They were asking $8000, but have come down to $7000. That sort of seems like a lot to pay and I would certainly like to pay less. However, I'm thinking that may be that isn't such a bad price for a 300d in such good shape and with so few miles. I've never owed a Mercedes (only trouble-ridden Land Rovers!!). I'd apprecient hearing what 300d owners think about this price. Thanks!! Rob
