Hi all, newbie here, but this seems like the place to ask. I'm close to buying a very good condition, private party, 2nd owner, '96 LT4 with 29,000 on the clock. The current owner has had it for 11,000 miles (8 years) and says it's got "new" tires, battery, brakes and clutch. He wants 20k for it. I can understand the battery and the tires for an 11 year old car, but new brakes and clutch before 30,000 miles?? I'm definitely going to ask for the shop receipts to see who and when the work was done. May be the guy just overly maintained his baby or do you smell a horse that's been rode hard?
