The 944 is at a mileage when they do recommend to replace the timing belt. For normal vehicles though the recommended replacement mileage is around 75K. If the 944 is not a Turbo; then replacement fenders and bumpers are pretty reasonable to acquire. How well does the car look like it was taken care of? If the interior is thrashed and the paint faded, stay away, unless a you are building a purpose built race car, or plan at throwing a lot of money at the car. They are great "drivers" cars, with little in driver aids that today's cars come with.
