Trying to join the club!

Ok, so I've been trying to find a decent 5th gen for a while now,and I think I may have the one. But because of my lack of experiance with preludes, or pretty much any car I figured I'd post this up here and see if any body can help me out.

The cars a 99 base 5 speed with a new japan high compression engine swapped in, the new engine has 100,000km on it and the car as 260,000. The guy says he crashed it into somebody and had to replace the whole front end, so it's got a 2000 front end on it. The thing i'm worried about is if the transmissions still going to be good in it or not, as it hasn't been replaced. The guys asking 8000 cdn for it, which doesn't seem unreasonable, but at the same time, if it's been in an accident and ****, I don't want to buy it and it end up being all ****ed up.
I will be getting a pre buy inspection done on it at a shop.
So ya, main questions are about
what I should watch for when buying a new prelude
Is the transmission going to be ok with 260,000 km on it
and is it even worth buying for 8000 when it's already been in an accident.

Sorry about the long post, and thanks for any help or advice.

I would say a 99 lude with 161556 miles on it is not worth 8k let alone with it being in a wreck. Check out kbb.com and autotrader.com to see what they go for around wear you live
