When I test drove mine. I test drive the **** out of it! Breaking and cornering like crazy. Check that cars fluids, also move the car forward and look if it's leaking on the floor. Check to see if you can hear anything weird under the engine like ticking and what not.

Ok, I'm glad were on the same page just checking the usuals. If anything I might end up getting it in the next week of so.

just look at overall condition, look under it and well as how it was maintained on the inside and how clean the engine is. If its average or dirty (as most are at that age) then you can conclude that it was treated normally nothing special. If its taken care of then it may be worth more of a look as it would mean its well maintained and what not.

I would try to find a car thats not been kept outside either.

If I may add.........Hold a dollar bill at the tail pipe, tight so as you don't loose it. If it sucks in you will be looking at a valve job soon.
