    Very nice, I must agree! But only a few hundred miles per year? Is that OK?

    I don't see why not, especially if it stored well, started and used occasionally etc.

    Ian,

    As you know, I recently purchased a 2003 with only 88 miles. For the past month, I've been going through the car in great detail inspecting everything that I can reach. I have not been able to establish any problems that are a result of the car not having been driven. The AC blows cold air, the heater works, all gauges work, and the car drives as it should (no unusual noises, rattles, and so on). I had the dealer replace all fluids/filters and inspect for signs of trouble (moister, rust, deposits, etc.) and nothing turned up! The car got a clean bill of health. It also passed smog with near zero emissions, including the HC which usually reads high on these cars.

    As expected, the body and paint is perfect. All rubber looks and feels new and there is no sign of corrosion. The interior leather looks and feels perfect.

    I am not sure where the fear of ultra low milage cars comes from??? As Andrew mentioned, a well stored car (indoor, away from the sun, and low on the humidity), that gets serviced once a year and driven a bit once in a while should age much much more gracefully than a car that is used daily.

    Everything eventually will fall apart, thanks to the second law of thermodynamics. But, I think when it comes to a Z8 that is purchased in part as an investment, two things matter: a clean history of ownership and low miles.

    I know! But I would only load on the miles & smiles and end up back where I am now. Mine is a driver, and that works for me. Went on a drive today with about 15 cars, had a blast.

    That looks like a cool group, I forwarded it on to Dustin who runs our Supercar Sunday, and is one of the driving forces behind the 11-99 event and the Motor4Toys event, might be fun to get it linked up down here too. Are you gonna head down to the Palm Springs event?

    Not sure yet about Palm Springs. The Eurosunday group meets up here once a month for a couple hours of show and usually a local drive. They are planning to start one in Beverly Hills soon. They are already in a couple of states.

    Norcal,

    I clicked on the link and there are 2 dates for the Danville event-1/18 and 2/15. Which is / was correct? If it is the 15th of next month, I'll try and talk Fred Kern into coming with me, provided good weather.
