    Picked up my 2000 Z28 this past fall with I think 56,XXX and now it has 66k on it.

    I dont consider it a "high" mileage car but not a low one either. For some reason to me once they hit 50 the idea of a low mileage car is gone. But that is just me.

    picked up my z28 a couple years back with 78k, it now has 88k. I've had to replace the cats, and my blacktop has started to form tiny bubbles on the side. other than that this car runs like a dream!

    Mine has very few bubbles actually but you can see it. Some people cant because they see the car as a whole. I dont think you can beat a car like these.

    I plan to always have a car like these as a DD. I mean get it for under 10k with 50k miles and sell it in 5-7 years with 100k on it for about 5-6k. Not bad....lol

    Bought mine with 100k, bcm and a few other minor issues but nothing too serious. Starting to hear a noise from the rear diff, I am hoping it is a pinion bearing. All in all for what it is and how it's treated (rough) I think it's pretty darn good. No engine problems, tranny is strong (m6) and she is fast! Just give it a good look over and it's hard to go wrong!!

    Bought my Formula in Aug of '07 with 65k. Currently at 104k.

    All I've NEEDED to replace was a few squeeky pulleys shortly after buying it, and a set of cats, which were replaced at 77k by the dealer under warranty.

    Other things like plugs/wires/filters/fluids and one set of tires I consider standard maintenance. Also picked up a set of shocks to replace the stockers, rear Koni's are in, but haven't gotten aorund to the front Bils.

    The pass side window motor is slow, of course, and my driver's side headlight gear went, but I did the free fix on it and it works great.

    Runs and shifts great, and gets a consistant 22-23mpg in mixed driving while running consistant 13.6@104 at the track.

    1999 Z-28 LS1

    Just bought mine, 1999 z-29 M6 T/T. Has 132K on it, and just had to replace the trans mount. I know the auto trans was removed and the M6 installd 3 years ago, after closer looking and cleaning, found that the water pump is new, and belts are new.

    What I plan on replacing in the coming months are:

    Plugs/wires
    Headers & full exhaust (current is pieced together)
    Rims/Tires (2-18' & 2-17' Z06 rims were included in sale)
    All new suspension bushings
    Front and rear sway bars
    Strut tower brace
    Shocks/struts
    Cross drilled/slotted rotors at all 4 corners
