230,000 miles.

I am 39 years old.

For my 16th birthday, my parents bought me a 1987 Toyota SR5 4x4.  That truck took me to 229,000+ miles also until the head gasket died in 2000.

I bought the Ford in 2000.  The 230,000 mile milestone is important becuase it has now surpassed my old Toyota (God I loved that truck).

I am approaching 40 years old and have driven TWO vehicles in my life.  Big Smile

I drove my 93' Cavalier to 189,000 before it was sold off to my brother. It hit 200,000 and still worked fine but needed the gas tank replaced. It had a nice hole in it that leaked when you filled it up past half way. No idea where it is now or if it's still running.

My current Mazda 6 has had a crapload of problems and I haven't even hit 100,000. Makes me miss my Cavalier. Sad

Actually yeah, that IS impressive. lol I'm turning 30 in April and my current car is a '98 Honda Accord with over 170,000 miles on it (when I got it in 2004, it had about 85,000 on it)--it is my fifth car. lol

My first car was a 1987 Ford Bronco II, which survived 2 accidents before being totalled in a third. Nobody was wearing seatbelts in any of the accidents and nobody had a scratch. Either I have a guardian angel, or that car was blessed. scratch After that I had an early 90's Ford Taurus that broke down after a few months and I got a 1989 Ford Bronco. Fuck I loved that truck but what a piece of shit it was. lol I had a big stereo system in it, 33" tires, a 4" lift, chrome running boards, fog lights, the works. Basically it was a douchebag truck. Perfect condition as far as the paint and custom rims went. But man, under the hood that thing SUCKED. Something went wrong at least once a month with that thing.

After that I got a 1992 Nissan 240SX (this was in 2000) and that baby only had 33,000 miles on it cause the owner moved in from Hawaii. I LOVED that car. Eventually it developed a bunch of mechanical problems that I, a college student, didn't nearly have the money to fix, so I sold it to a friend at a dealership that did have the cash to fix it and got the Honda as a hand-me-down from my grandmother who is on too many prescription meds to drive. lol Free car though = awesome. devilbang
