Re: 1990 GT

any leaks, rust (door jams, under wheel wells, floor, trunk). take any notice when test driving it to the likes of ticks and rattling.

See how the car reacts when you gun it and such

If you look at a manual, make sure the clutch pedal releases easy, fairly early, and without chattering/shuddering

Pop the hood/look around under the car check for leaks/rust spots (esp. the front floor pans, I had one in my 89 rot out above the brake lines on the passenger side...)

Check for an unusual amount of rubber buildup in the rear fenderwells, it can be a sign of how frequently the car was abused..

Take it for a test drive before you buy, don't just look it over then take it.. be sure to drive it, get on the gas a bit, make sure the shifts are good (if auto) or synchros don't grind (if manual) and be sure to look behind you if you gun it a bit, see if there's a plume of smoke following you, that's usually a bad sign..
