From what I can see it has an airbag light on, turn the key on and try the horn. If the horn doesn’t work you will need a new clock spring under the steering wheel most likely.
Bring an electrical tester, test battery voltage then start it and test charging voltage, should be 14 and change charging and 12-12.5 not running.
If anything less than those numbers you’ll need a battery and alternator. It looks like it has less than 12 already.
Make sure reverse lights work and that it starts in park and neutral. If any issues there it will be neutral safety switch. Easy enough fix.
if you have a obd2 tester check it out to see if the monitors aren’t set and to see if any codes are pending.
98 is the best year, I have one with 457k on it. Bought it from the original owner at 209k for $1700 11 years ago.
It is now rotten beyond repair but it still runs very well. I never treated it properly either, up to 15k between oil changes at times but not every time. Usually between 6 and 8k. Has same clutch since 214k but it’s starting to feel wonky.
If it’s rust free, $1800 wouldn’t be a bad price in my area even if it did have some issues as long as it runs good.
