Re: Purchasing Z06 with 148000
I would agree with the previous posters. I bought my '03 Z for only a few thousand more than what that dealer is asking and that was 7 years ago and it had under 4,000 miles on it at the time. A car approaching 150,000 miles, while likely still ok is best left to someone who plans to gut it and/or rebuild a lot of things. You might save a few thousand now, but I can almost guarantee your cost of ownership over the next five years will be much higher than buying a car that has 100,000 less miles on it. A car with 150k miles has a lot of parts on it that are likely at, or near, the end of their useful life. You may also want to consider that if they did engine mods, it wasn't so they could cruise around nicely in 6th gear at 55 mph...
In the end you should buy what makes you happy, but the C5Z is still far too plentiful to feel like you have buy the first one that comes along. Now if you are in AK or HI, you choices may be limited, but in the lower 48 there are likely hundreds of them within a couple hundred miles of your location. Just keep kicking over all the rocks and you eventually find a diamond.
