To Much?

I'm considering buying a 1993 Mercury Sable GS, the car is in real nice condition-
125,000 miles, all the options. Has the 3.8 motor that had new head gaskets put in this past fall. The tires are like new, newer brakes and exhaust. The car runs and drives very nice. They are asking $2250.00 or b.o.
I'm also looking at a 93 Taurus, with 164,000 miles (Ouch) Also in real nice condition.
It also has the 3.8 motor that had new head gaskets put in by the recall. Also in the past
2-3 years it has had new brakes, exhaust, radiator, (all the usual matainince things)
They are asking $2000.00
I would like to hear what others think about these cars, if they are asking to much for them and also what I should look out for before as far as trouble spots on these cars.

Thanks in advance! :

Thanks for all of the replies, I'm definitely leaning towards the Sable, but I have one major concern with the Sable, the owner says that the car has aprox 125,000 miles on it, however the odometer shows over 200,000! He claims that since about 115,000 miles the odometer has been inacurate, that it jumps ahead why to far. However the speedometer seems to work ok, has anyone ever heard of such a problem with a odometer or is he feeding me a line of bull?
