Default Any Las Vegas members that can help with advice on a car

I live in Las Vegas but I'm no mechanic and although I love these cars I don't know a whole lot about what to look for when buying a Z06. There is a local Z06 that I am interested in purchasing but I would feel more comfortable if I had someone inspect the car with me and point out anything they think would need to be fixed. I would pay you for your time. It's a 2006 Z06, 2LZ with 66,000 miles.

If no one can do that, could anyone recommend a good shop, possibly one that specializes in Corvettes that could inspect the car and give it a clean bill of health?

The shop that comes to mind is Tucker's:
http://www.tuckersperformancecenter.com/

I have a '79 and I know that Jim over there knows his Corvettes, I just don't know if he knows newer models as well as older. I am picky with mechanics since I tend to do almost all of my own work, but he was honest and did a good job.

Probably too late for you, but I have heard good things about R&M, here in town. You might give them a call.

In the future, if you need an opinion, I will be glad to look at a car with you, though z06 is the one I know least about.

Jim, LV
