Default About to pull the trigger on 2008 Z350 Touring Coupe

Am getting exactly what I was looking for...I think and hope. CarMax is getting a 2008 Silver Touring Coupe Z350 with 6 speed manual trans. The color, year, 6 speed manual and 69K miles are the big things I wanted. The engine is a 3.5L with 306 HP. I'm looking for something that has a little mmmph and will get up and go when needed...I like being pushed back in the seat but generally I drive like an old lady....I'm 63 yrs. old in case you wonder about age and who buys cars like this. It costs $16,998. With mileage on the low side...to me...I'd like to think I won't need a car for awhile.


I have been driving a 1993 Olds Cutlass I bought in 2003 so this with be a brand new experience for me and I expect a learning curve of sorts. Any feedback on buying this would be helpful.

Sounds like low miles and a good fit! Unless it has lots of modifications, the HP is 20% lower, still fun to drive though.
If you want to check prices in your area, go to
kbb.com
and plug in your numbers. Good luck.

No sir, apologies for the odd syntax.
I read his ad to say the 350z has 306 HP, I was pointing out a stock HR is probably closer to 245HP.

You're about a 6 hour trip from me, if you're interested in a 2008 Black 350Z with 32,500 miles . Either way you won't regret buying a Z.
