if you do end up getting it, change every last fluid in the car before you start using it. After 4 years of nothing, the fluids will break down, absorb moisture, oxidize, separate, or otherwise go bad, which is a bad thing everywhere where there is fluid.
I.E. engine and transmission oils will not protect for shit after breaking down for 4 years, coolant will have left deposits everywhere, brake and clutch (if it's a manual) fluids will have oxidized and absorbed a lot of moisture thereby greatly reducing their effectiveness...
I agree also that that's a high asking price for that year and for the fact that it's been sitting for so long with no maintenance. Take it to a shop, ask how much it would cost to flush/change all the fluids and fix what's wrong, and take that price off the top and start offering from there.
*edit* hah Ryan, beat me to it!
