Default thinking of buying my first Supra

I have found a 1986.5 Supra that i am thinking on buying. it has 122k miles on it. It is acutally extremely clean. The headgasket has been replaced at 60k and so has the timing belt. The car looks like it has been taken good care of. And has just had a lot of parts just recently replaced. The current owner has had the car for 16 years. so he knows all about it. But somethings that it looks like it will need are tires and the timing belt done. What i am curious about are some common failures or problems on these MKIII Supras? Ive know and read all about supras all my life. Ive just never been this serious in buying one. I have been a BMW enthusiaist ever since i had my first car, a '91 325ic. And one of the first things i had to do to it was the timing belt and it wasnt the easiest job ive done on a car I had to remove just about the whole front of the engine. The engine in that BMW was an m20 with a SOHC. I know that these supras are DOHC. So, how hard would it be to change the timing belt?

So there is my story and my delima.

id appreicate some answers! thanks!

you would have to take off the crank shaft pulley and that would probably be the hardest part of changing the belt
