No major drawbacks from what have have in your stable now. You are used to a sportscar so you know the limitations inherent with any of them. Judging by your stable, I take it you are no stranger to locating hard to find parts. You can't go down to Pep Boys and get parts but I've never had any problem locating any part I've needed.
The one thing is not to expect the same kind of power out of a 308 that you have with some of your other cars. You are not going to light up the tires off the line like you can with your Vette. It is a high speed road car, not a dragster. The engine doesn't start making any real power until your revs are well above what you are used to in an American V-8. The overall handling, balance and "feel" of the car is quite nice.
As for rust, you need to check all the usual places. Bottoms of the doors, rocker panels, etc. A pre-purchase inspection by a 3rd party is always recommended.
