Well for that price, I would go for it.
I would start by checking the battery cables and ground straps. The most important ground, other than the negative battery cable, is from the tranaxle to the body.
It may seem obvious but is the battery good?
I don't have any books for the generation 2 cars but I will see if I can find anything.
Feel free to ask here or by PM if you have anymore questions.
If you do buy the car the best investment you can make is a good service manual.
These are not the cheapest but by far the best.
Good cars and easy to make wicked fast.
