Hey everyone! I'm going to look at a 1990 SC 5 speed on Saturday, and just wanted to get some advice on anything I should be on alert for. The guy is selling it for $1000, the post says new motor, rebuilt tranny, and new clutch, but is there anything that is a common issue I should look for? I drive a modded 01 focus so this is a lot different then what I'm used to. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Doesn't look bad! I think the links above are a very good start. These cars are not very rust prone, in context. But do check the rocker panel areas carefully.
