Depends on price, that rear quarter looks like more than surface rust to me, and I have seen a lot. I believe it goes deeper than he knows, like also down under body trim(ground effects panel). Look like its been sitting awhile. The engine & trans needs checked out these were drove hard and put up wet, See if it has working sport & tour modes. These can be hard to get good used parts for and new parts are pricey. The other option is performance upgrade parts or after-market, which you get what you pay for right.

Looks like its going to need tires as the back looks flat, Look at it as a fixer and do not buy it if it needs to be your only daily driver. These are around cheap in my area and I like them but after getting a good look I change my mind and keep looking. I do think if the price is right then if you can keep it from going down hill and on track up-hill these cars will come back up in value likely sooner then later. It will be a collectable. May take 10 years to hit the big spike upward but it will and there will be even fewer to find.

There is a bunch more and many under $1000. If that one is not comparable in condition and they are asking as much money I would look elsewhere. They are around. These I put to show those up for sale and I am not sale anything, its just to show they are still around and for your to compare to the one your thinking about buying.
