Just have it checked out, how it runs, belt, probably a timing belt, tires, alignment, all your normal stuff.

If it were mine, I would have the timing belt changed along with the tensioner, idler (if equipped) and water pump. Also I would change all the fluids, filters and install a new set of spark plugs. I would be most concerned with the timing belt due to its age.

Also as Rowefast suggested, have a look at the tires and maybe check the date codes. Tires older than 6 years can be unsafe.

Right on Bob, thanks for the more detail on the timing stuff.
