    Check for rust underneath if the car is from the North East salt belt.

    If the frame rails are bad, it'll cost thousands to safety.

    Be sure to take it for a nice long test drive. Keep an eye out for overheating. These are not known for this problem, but once it develops it can sometimes be difficult to clear up if it goes beyond the thermostat. But I second pcb. These are fairly simple cars but, you want one that has been maintained.
