    Stuff to look for

    Howdy folks. New to the forum and after reading up for a bit, I'm beginning to look for a z28 or formula, and was wondering what good and bad I should look for. I formerly had a 95 3.4 and although it was a dog of an engine, it handled pretty well after kyb shocks, h&r springs, and lakewood LCA/adjustable panhard bar. I really loved it, but after 200k miles, it was time to retire it.

    I'm probably going to limit my search to 01-02 for the LS6 intake. I haven't decided on t-tops or not as the solid roof cars aren't any stiffer because they were all designed to be t-tops, but I'd definitely check for leaks. Other than plugs/wires, oil in the coolant, and junk in the oil/trans pan, what other problem areas should I check for? I live in C Florida but I'm originally from Chicago, and the rockers were starting to rust on my 95, so I'd look for that as well.

    Thanks in advance for you help!

    If You're Looking In Florida I Would Watch For Water Damaged Vehicles For All The Bad Weather Last Year Down South. Other Than That My 2000 With T-tops Never Leaks And Is Rattle Free Still.
