Which car would you buy?

I may be purchasing a 1987 Camaro with around 80k miles on it. It is manual and looks to be in good condition. I'm wondering if this car will be able to stand daily use of 5-40 city miles. It's selling for 2500. Should I instead buy a dealer 1999 mustang? It's like will last longer than the Camaro but I'd really prefer the camaro. So my question really is, is a 1987 Camaro for 2500$ worth the money if it may just break down within a year or so? Would it even break down if treated correctly?

Additional Details
I used 5 miles a day as a minimum to school and back sort of thing. I will most definitely cruise around in the fancy cars.
Here are the mustang spec that are given

1999 Ford Mustang S351, 8 Cylinders, Manual Transmission, Great Conditions, 19 xxx

Buy a Honda those will last you well over 300k if you take great care of them. It's never good to buy older cars unless you're good with cars and can fix them up if something goes wrong with them. Don't buy any of them buy a Honda

get the VIN #'s and check the history if it had any major issues/accidents, etc. then i would decide from there. i would tend to go newer and less miles just you have better peace-of-mind. check to see what the camaro has- does it carb or FI? (carb is cheaper to maintain) disc brakes or drum brakes? (disc is easier to maintain), did the car pass the emmission? (this is required, can be costly to repair to find issues on why not passing the emmission).
