I'm purchasing an 89 Z24 Conv with 170,000 miles on it and I'm looking for some advice.
Aside from the usual things to check, what should I be concerned with that is specific to this particular car. i.e. what are the common issues or problems associated with car, the 2.8L or Auto trans etc...??
Right now, the Air Cond. doesn't work (big suprise), the cruise control isn't working, and the drivers window works, but it's loose in the tracks. The power top works like a dream and the ingine sounds and runs great. Everything else is in great shape, body and all.
Any suggestions/comments are welcome.

Ive also got an 89 (not convertable), but how long should i expect this thing to run? There is a little body damage on the front right side and I want to get it fixed. With 113,000 miles, would it be worth the $1000 to restore the look? The car runs great, and the plugs show no problem. Thanks

My 92 has 170K miles on it. You guys with cruise control problems, check the servo under the hood. The rubber diaphragm cracks internally sometimes. They are cheap at a junkyard, lots of interchangeability.
