First of all don't pull up to look at an SC with a import car. If you do the SC won't start. Second is Tell the SC you love domestic cars and would never drive a import.
everything else can be fixed so don't worry about it.

Honestly there isn't anything your going to see that won't be obvious. With an SC you have to test drive them and listen,feel and judge. These things are known for all kinds of problems EXP. Cam sensor, crank sensor, dis module,vacuum leaks, ETC ETC. These are problems that you could ask about but then your at the mercy of someone who is lying or may just have no clue what you just said.
Best thing to do is just test drive the SC and See how does it idles?Does it buck underboost? Any hesitation? These would be signs of trouble. Other than that you won't see or know anything is wrong. That is unless there are major problems.

Check door hinges they almost all sag. Check a/c and heater. Heater core requires dash removal. Make sure everything is in working order.
