The red car is a collector car, and is in a totally different league than an 80k mile car, which is also no slouch.

The premium is only 28%, which is low.
However, that does not mean you should buy it.

Do you like red ? If not, skip.
PPI for both is worth it, considering this is a $50k purchase.
Drive both. Buy the better car.

Also, try to negotiate both down, and buy from the more motivated seller.

When you put 20k miles on both, you now have a 56k and 102k mile car.
The red will still command a serious premium, while the grey will not.

Given supplied info, I agree the red does seem to be a better value.
