They're fun cars. 3K is probably a fair price but you might talk him down a little. The Zetecs are pretty stout mechanically, my brothers stock '00 ZX3 has 220K miles and the car feels pretty tight still. I suspect the car you're looking at is not on the original timing belt anymore, it probably would have broken or stripped by now. In any case it might be time to put a new one on anyway just for peace of mind.
