Take it to a mechanic for a buyers inspection first, the car could have problems that will bite you in the ass a few weeks down the road... seriously, its worth the money. If it all checks out, go for it!

pretty much like a state inspection. Tell them your wanting to buy this car and you need it looked over. shouldn't be more than $15. It's $12 in missouri

if ur just gonna look at it check for leaks in the engine compartment and check the oil and other fluids, timing belt wear. testdrive of course and check how its shifts, if breaks feel good, if suspension feels good. but the best way is to take it to get tested. hope that helped.

yeah if thats cool with him i say sounds like a plan. also u can look up ways to inspect used cars on the internet and make ur own checklist and run through those once u "borrow" it.

You really should have the suspension inspected. That turned out to be one of the main sinks on my 94'. At that age, probably all the bushings are toast, and their are a ton of them to replace. The ball joints, control arms, and tie rod ends may be worn out as well. Check the rear calipers and see if the park levers still work, and eyeball the trailing arm bushings while your back there. Look at the torque mounts on the engine too, they might be torn. Basically, if it's rubber, check it.

I hope I'm wrong though. Good luck with the buy.
