Should I buy this C5?

My neighbor is selling his 1999 Corvette Coupe for $8000. It has 175,000 miles on it and electrical issues on the dashboard like being stuck in kilometers per hour. Also the traction control only turns on half of the time and it keeps popping up "service traction control" where the odometer should be. But other than that the engine and transmissions seem to work very good.Do you think it is worth the price?

(P.S. Should I worry about the miles on it and what is the mileage expectancy for this engine)

If it runs and drives, 8k makes for a fun beater

Depends what you want it for. As it was already said, 8k for a beater isn't too bad...but expect some stuff to break
