What should I look for on used Topaz

I am thinking about getting a used Topaz for the Winter. I will only spend $1000. i was wondering if there are certain problems with certain year cars. I have seen some 1989 to 92 advertised for thuis price. Any issues like head gasket, motor mounts,etc. I can work on the car myself. I will probably only drive it 3k miles/year. Appreciate any info.

John

Tranny mounts are a very weak part of Tempos with auto trannies. The engines are rock solid.
