    look at the pictures and his description...M6


    car looks pretty good, nice and clean, price is decent, mileage is good, but you need to drive the car before you make any decisions, see if the engine still pulls hard, listen for any noises that shouldn't be there, take it to a mechanic and have it checked out, compression test, etc.

    might be cheaper to fly down and see if he can pick you up. other than that the car doesn't look bad at all. i paid a little more for my m6 but mine had less miles

    how it feels to drive a low mileage LS1? they are still good at these miles (20k-40k) or not?

    I paid 12,500 for my 00 Z28 in June of 04 and it only had 20k miles on it. If you're willing to look, you can find better deals.

    OMG, dude, they're still good at 120K, you'll be fine. and if the car is still stock as hell, i think you got a winner there. That's a clean lookin' car and being that it's 6 years old that means it's only been driven about 3000 miles a year. THINK ABOUT THAT!

    I'd question more about the previous owner of the car-but really, a stock car that is 6 years old is really REALLY a good lookin deal.

    Looks real nice too me, since you have to travel to get her talk him down to 12K or Less, his wife wants him to get rid of it so he will deal with you rather than deal with her. I would rather not deal with the ole lady if I didn't have to, LOL.

    The car looks real clean and not much wear or anyhting on the leather and the engine bay is clean, not detailed and shiney clean but just clean.

    I think it's worth it but deal with him on the price he will go down on it rather than deal with his ole lady, I can almost guarentee that, LOL.

    good luck

    a little added advice,take the cars vin number to any gm dealer and have them do a service record check.If its been to any gm dealer for repairs it will show all.

    sounds like a fairly good deal, talk him down some since you have to travel so far. But, no, they are not good at 120k. Thats why i kept mine to 22k in 4 years lol..
