cant believe i missed this thread.... god i hope you didnt pay 8.5k for a v-6.
seriously, you can get an LS1 for cheaper than that. the miles dont mean squat. one thing to keep in mind, is that the lower the miles, the longer the car has sat without being driven. and more often than not, the less the oil was changed. regardless of the miles, the oil in cars needs to be changed every 3-4 months or 3k miles. whichever happens first. if you want, ive got a few friends selling cars here in SC that i can hook you up with. if you havent wasted the money on that car.

i put about 20,000 on my LT1 each year. she's at just over 180k on the clock. only major thing motorwise was a blown head gasket, but that was my fault cus i hooked up the steam pipe to the wrong fitting on the radiator.
but yes, with proper maintenance, ANY motor should last.
