Well it has 130,xxx miles 1998 carfax has a clean report the interior was spectacular but the front end shakes when driving 50+mph it didn't start up at first but he put a new battery and it fired up fine no leaks good breaks so is it worth 5000? Here is the ad http://grandisland.craigslist.org/cto/2945603715.html

Thats not a bad price, paid $5100 for mine that was mostly stock with 193,000 miles on it. The shaking could be just bad tires (he states needs tires in ad). If I was looking to buy and came across this, i'd highly consider it.

But isn't it bad for a z28 to have that many miles on it?

Depends how hard it's been driven and how well it's been kept up. I wouldn't be scared of 130k, hell 193k didn't scare me from putting a cam in :)

That's true he is the third owner but idk if i should go for it he hasn't been driving it lately and he said he has never raced in it which I doubt but all the oils looked good you think he will go down on the price? Maybe 4000?

i always offer $1000 less of what the asking price is, depending on condition. just make sure theres no issues and its been maintained. if all that checks out, id go for it

Well this is a little different but I just bought a Ranger that had 140,000 miles on it. I would have never even looked at a vehicle with that kind of mileage. But I said what the hell and took it for a test drive. The thing rode and drove like it had 10,000 miles on it. So I bought it and havent looked back.

Only you can get true feel for how the car has been driven. A lot of f-body's have been rode hard. I bought a low mileage one so hopefully I won't have to worry about it, but you never know. If finances determine you fixing what's may go wrong with the car, past it up. You will find the one eventually.

Good luck!

dont let miles scare ya, just look it over real good, get it on a lift etc, if you /or you have a good mechanic see if the guy minds if you have it checked out, or at least take a good look under it, also look at it in great light so you can see every flaw, if he wants 5 i would offer 4 and go from there, bring cash flash it in front of him and see if he jumps on it, i wouldnt take 5 with you, take at most 4250
