When you turn the car on, the "CHECK" in the gauge cluster will blink, and the brake light warning light in the roof panel will stay lit until you tap the brakes. This is normal.
There is also an amber ANTI-LOCK warning light on the bottom row of the cluster. If this is on after you start the engine, then the ABS isn't working. The E30 ABS is pretty simple (but effective), and easy to diagnose and repair.
If you like the car, go for it.
