look for rust.... the 5m is probably tired but not definitely dead...they seem to be more stout than the 7ms in the later cars

It all depends on what you are going to do with this car. If this is going to be an every day driver, you'll have a handful of things you'll want to check and replace.

The 5M is pretty stout; mine lasted 240k miles before it blew the headgasket. I've heard other people have had weird issues with the EFI system/wiring.

Check/replace the rear differential mount, rear crossmember mounts (Super Pro sells a nice set), the blower motor has been a common thing to go bad, the rear seal (driveshaft seal) on the trans tends to leak after a while, it's a $5 seal that is worth replacing.
