Default worth it?

I was coming home last night from looking at a 90 K-5 Blazer and on the side of the road was a 1992 Bonne SSE for sale. It'* a nice looking car, has a little rocker panel rust and some is starting on the rear drivers side wheel well. It'* white, has a red cloth interior and it runs great. It sounds good, smells good and all that. It does have 300 thousand miles on it, which after meeting the owner doesnt really get to me. He'* an older guy, but just from my description is it really worth 2 grand? I'm thinking of offering him like $1200 but I dont want to insult him. Any input??

Rusty early 1990'* Pontaic with 300k miles. I expect the brake lines, tranny lines and fuel lines are all about to fail... and that is just the beginning. I wouldn't take it for free if I had to keep it running safely.

Hey now guys, I'm trying to sell my "early 90'* Bonneville with over 300K miles" for $1000. I think it'* worth the price because it still does run great. Nothing is about to fall apart on it and everything. NOT worth just $500, depending.
