Default Too good to be true? ZR1 for $8000?

I am wondering what everyone think. Good looking ZR1, no accidents, nothing mechanically wrong. Everything looks like it's all original, including the paint which appears faded (no shine or sparkle). Car has 150,000 miles on it. Guy wants $8,000. I thought ZR1's were the holy grail of vettes. Should this price raise a red flag? Or is it just a low price for a ZR1 with lots of miles?

What year? Color? Pics?

Owner have any documentation on it?

$8000 sounds too good to be true, makes me think there is something wrong with the car. 150k miles is a lot of miles, just depends on how hard those miles where.

I think you should not waste time on it...Just give me the seller's address and phone # and I'll make sure he leaves you alone.

It is a red 1992 ZR1. The guy owns a boat/RV buisness, and he has the ZR1 sitting on his buisness lot. I think he got the ZR1 on a boat sale as a trade in.

Forward me the number as well. I wouldn't mind a ZR-1 as a track car.

Is this the one at Carolina Boats and Cars? If so, are you sure it's a ZR-1? The ad says it is, but the VIN says it's not.
