I have less miles on mine, but they are nautical miles.

I've been hiring a tow truck to take me places when I want to use the car.  It's a fool proof system for keep the miles down, but a little expensive.

Oh, you mean use it to pull a parade float and dance around on the float.  Yeah, I don't think that would do it.

100,000 just feels bad man. most of the parts that matter on your car only have a few thousand miles on them.

i might get to 100,000 in another 7 years. lol. and my car had 36k on it when i got it... in 7 years i have put 30k on it. who cares when it drives better than it did new anyways. it doesn't have many parts left on it that are were on it when i bought it. no stock suspension left, no stock rear end parts left, many upgraded trans parts, and replaced most of the maintenance parts on the engine when the cam was put in. our rides might not be new, but it is hard to call them old.

November will be 2 years for mine, and I haven't put 2K on it yet lol. After having replaced or rebuilt much of it, I feel like yes it's old but still a good car at 79K. I'm not aiming for what you or jontoad or even Evan are/has done, I'm happy with it having a nice "passing gear"  checkflag

That's a terrible sign if you see an 'x' on your odometer. It's as if the vehicle has declared "Fuck it. I've got a lot of miles and I'm not going to bother keeping track anymore."

Pretty much sums up my 300. It's an old X-Rated machine.
