Exclamation Found legacy turbo, need advice!!

Okay, I found a '91 Legacy Turbo, here's the details.

First of all its a Canadian car, 1991, 176,000km( or 110,000miles), 5 spd, red, asking price is $5900 canadian( or $4000US)
Clutch: replaced at 100,000km
2nd owner
T-belt: done at 90km
Paint: he says its faded around the hood scoop and might need new paint.
New tires
Rust: some small rust bubbles around a wheel well, but very small.
Suspension: new struts awhile ago, original springs.
Brakes: says they're good
Sunroof has 5inch long crack in it, Clarion stereo won't work, maybe a lose wire.
Dealer maintained with full service records.

To me it sounds like it nees some work and the price seems a like much. The bad paint thing, i was thinking maybe a good compounding, polish and wax would make it look like new.

My question is what do all you Subie experts think? Should i drive 3hrs to look at it, or wait??

You think I should buy it? I might go look at it tomorrow, its just that theres a bit of rust around the wheel well and the paint according to him is getting faded and needs new paint and that worries me, cause I don't want to buy a problem. And the mileage, well i guess its a subie, so it should last for at least 250,000km.
If I had just sold my car things would be different, but I still have to sell my car, and that might turn out to be a problem, but I really want to get a 5 spd turbo!!
