    Here's the deal - 1999 Camaro Z-28 - Miles 122500, Automatic - Mods, 4:10's, 3500 Yank Converter, SSI Intake, Tune & Late Model Corvette Wheels. Car has T-Tops and is Pewter with Houndstooth interior, Paint & Interior are good, Tires good - Price is $6000.00 - Seems to run good - Does this sound like a good deal? Any thoughts are appreciated.

    I would look it over very carefully. It's obviously been raced which isn't that big of a deal but that tranny and rear would worry me if they're still stock.

    He added an aftermarket transmission cooler, right? With that stall, please tell me he did!

    He started at $ 8000

    He listed in the paper for 8000 - I offered 6000 - I didn't see an aftermarket transmission cooler - I'm going to get my mechanic to go over this afternoon so I guess I should ask him to finetooth comb the trans, rear, motor, brakes, steering?
    Thanks

    Sounds to me like concensus is pass

    Sounds like its a pass at 6000. I basically agree - 122000 is a lot of miles with many hard ones I'm sure. I'll think about it and see what my mechanic says and I'll let everyone know - thanks for the replies.

    It's also an auto with 410s it's not going to be highway friendly at all.

    it seems like auto high mile z-28s are a dime a dozen now, go over to tech and check out their classifieds, they have a lot of cars in and around that price range

    On car

    Mechanic looked over and said car had many problems - brakes, brake lines incorrect, body damage, alingment, tires - said best parts of car were motor and transmission. Still looking.
    Thanks
