    Is it just me or is this an insane deal?

    Well if you guys read my other thread my Z28 was totalled by a couple of old hags running a red and a firetruck, so I'm in the market for a bird I found this the other day, called the dealership, talked a bit with them, pulled up a carfax, and everything checks out, I'm gonna have her shipped by the end of today what do you guys think?

    I would say run the vin to make sure it's what they say it is, and usually when it's that low there is some sort of issue with the car they don't want to fix, usually a head gasket or something like that.

    I ran the vin and no issues came up, but that's exactly what I was thinking. They said the car is completely stock and there's nothing wrong with it. I'm sorta forced to take their word on it simply because there's no way I can get anyone down there to look at it.

    yeh this is my dream car, I can't believe I'm about to get it DD
    Pewter convertables are sick as well, good luck with that. Reason I wanna jump on it is because of the low miles, you just can't find them with low miles like that around here anymore.

    Are you sure its not a rebuilt salvage title?

    That price is extremely low.

    Great find and deal if it isn't though.

    according to carfax its never been in an accident or anything, so yeh, they just really want the cash. They said the car's been sitting in the same spot for about a week and nothing's leaking from it or anything. A/C works, shifts smoothly, no piston slap.
    Here's another shot at the ad

    Looks good,just the front DS corner appears to be a little out of shape.

    Look at the body gap between the fender and valance.

    Your in Texas,take drive over there and take it out for a spin and check it over.

    Car fax means nothing could have been fixed privately and never reported.

    You never know. I got an extra gauge cluster in the garage that only reads 100k. You can buy them off ebay cheap.

    I dunno the fact that it's cash only kinda makes it sound a lil odd, not to mention the huge gap on the drivers side the hood is not lining up very well, it may have gotten a love tap at some point. That and it's off craigslist can't say I trust that place a whole lot.

    Ok we decided to play it safe and go with a silver T/A here locally, simply because we also felt that it all just sounded too iffy and that we didn't want to take a day off from work to just go and check it out. work>car. honestly I also like this silver one better simply because it already has headers on, so I dont' have to deal with that, I just have to find tips.
