What a blessing that nobody got hurt, and supposedly a great action performed by the driver.

You NEVER EVER just buy a car and take it for granted to be safe. Always have it checked out by a real mechanic.

Do the math, the car is 26 years old, things don't get younger. And hardly anybody changes his brake fluid (which is hygroscopic), it should be done at least every 3 years.

Just look at used car adds, supposedly there are no bad cars. The all run great, have highway mileage, all services done (but of course no proof/receipts) and if something is broken, it is 'known' for this vehicle and part can be bought for $5 on eBay.

Any car 25 or more years old is officially an antique.  All antique cars should have the brake lines and hoses replaced before they are operated.  It is difficult to inspect these even for a "real mechanic'.  I own 3 of these old cars.  Rust and corrosion is not visible behind the brackets and fasteners and rubber parts can and do deteriorate from the inside.
