$2500 sounds like an excellent price, depending of course on the amount of
hail damage and general condition. The price of this car in good condition
would be around $6K to $7K.  I have the same car and here's what I suggest
you look out for:

- Hydraulic leaks in power steering/brake systems. Check the hydraulic
  pump and the rack.
- Rear differential axle seal leaks. Loss of oil can cause costly damage.
- Rear trapezoidal arm mounting bushings (as discussed in this list lately).
- Check out the usual stuff as you would in any car (road test, all
   accessories operational?, CV joints, oil leaks, etc)
- Evidence of regular maintenance (receipts, etc)
