Sounds like a good price, LT1's make a ton of torque down low, that car is not the easiest to work on, but it sounds like a good deal.

Depends... by 124K my old 1995 Z28 A4 had EVERYTHING replaced. (engine, trans, rearend, etc)... my current car has 114K on it and the clutch and slave cylinder are the only two things on the car to be touched save for regular maintenence. Just check it over carefully and if something doesn't seem right run away.

If the condition is good, go for it!!

My 96 sold for $2100. It had 174k on it and I still felt like I got the raw end of the deal. Grab that car while it lasts...

Nope. Not gonna be cakewalk for a beginner, but won't be too hard either. Should be a pretty inexpensive trick to turn if you wanna take it to a shop. Might not be running tho, are you gonna have to tow it?
