Ford or Nissan - or neither?

I'm in a quandry --- my car has reached it's life's end (91 Honda Prelude - needs timing belt, brakes, tires, and has small oil & coolant leaks) and now I'm in a spot where I need a car but have very limited funds at the moment. Currently my 2 choices are a 1994 Ford Taurus w/ 180,000 miles (new tires, recent maintenance work - although don't know specifics) for $300 or a 1997 or 98 Nissan Maxima w/ 260,000 miles (yikes) for $2000. The Ford was previously owned by a co-worker's mechanic then used by his son for 6 months. The Nissan is owned by a salesman - most miles were highway (I'm guessing 75-80%) - who was meticulous about the car's maintenance.

My questions are: Are either of the 2 worth considering and if so, which one? Or, should I stay away from both and look elsewhere?

Thanks for any advice.
