Default 1995 honda prelude si, won't start

Hi guys, there is a prelude I found for sale, the only problem with it is that it won't start. The guy says that all the electrical comes on,but when he turns the ignition the car shakes but doesn't start.

It is the non-vtech 160 hp si model

here are pics of the car.

What do you guys think the problem might be? And would the fix be expensive?

ok guys I have been emailing the owner, and this is what he thinks it might be.

"The engine had a problem with the rocker arm or valve arm springs and I never got it replaced that's all I can think of other than that I was driving it and I got home no check engine lights or anything like that and in the morning it wouldn't start. It is turning over but wont stay or start completely."

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
He is asking 1800 for the car OBO.
Do you guys think it's worth it?

any and all help is appreciated, Thank you.
