The rubber on the inside of the windows starts to leak; as I said, the windshield rubber was worth nothing. So you may end up seeing that parts you thought would last a whole lot longer just don't last at all.
It must have been somewhat protected as the rubber molding is all in good shape, tires are like new. (In fact the spare still has the original sticker on it) I can see your point if it was in Florida, but up here is PA, the weather is not anywhere near as hot as the south. No rust on the body and the undercarriage almost looks new. Time will tell, but even if I have to do a few "replacements", I have saved enough to more than cover those.

IF you're not using it on a regular basis...sell it.
Doesn't pay to have something just sit around and rust.
