Exhaust had rusted out so I straight piped it, and put a boom tube off a truck on it. That was probably the best thing that I did - it sounds mean. The seats are wearing out. Carburetor needed adjustments.

Thinking of buying a 1985 buick skylark, are there any problems with this car or year?

Depends on your definition of problems. Nothing big as far as I remember, but there could be problems with a 28 yr old car if it has been parked for a long time. I would not expect it to be a daily driver.

Head lamp harness

No - the worst electrical problem that the headlamp harness could cause is to short itself to ground somehow (bare wire, unplugged & turned on, etc), which would blow the headlight fuse.
However, dashboard problems can cause headlight problems, since the headlight switch is located in the dash.
The common point between the headlight problems, dashboard problems, and "electrical problems" would be the under-dash wiring and/or wiring harness from ECC (Engine Control Computer, aka "the car's computer) to the dashboard - check here first for grounding/shorting problems, or water leaking out of the in-dash vents onto a wiring harness.
