Icon5 '97 Lude worth it?

Hey all,

I'm looking at a '97 prelude (non-SH) with ~180k on it already for $2000 CAD. Worth it?
Stated no known issues but at the same time no est time when the timing belt was last changed.
Looks clean in both the car itself, and under the hood.

Anything I should be looking out for?

*Not looking to race or anything like that, but just love the look of the lude since I was a kid.

Thanks in advance!
Cheers,
JT

Don't buy it, its an auto. This car will cost you a lot more than $2000.
