200,000 a big deal (for me anyway)

this morning, I finally hit 200,000 miles. it is the most mileage I have ever had on a vehicle. I have had the vehicle since 95,000 which was 6+ years ago.

my hope is that the next owner of my vehicle will either be a junk yard or a recycling facility.

I just got my taxes yesterday and the assesed value according to the state of NC is $574

Didn't think a cavalier would last that long Do you still plan on keeping this car? Because I remember you complaining about it (which is definitely warranted) and just seeing this post kind of says otherwise.

I had over 300,000 miles on my 74 Chevy C-10 when I sold it, and it ran flawlessly.

I had issues with the EGR for a time and finally bit the bullet and spent the $160 for a new one.

my hope is to keep it until it is more expensive to fix than get rid of.

no, it's kind of like when you turn 30. no more parties. if you are lucky, you go out to eat with the family (hopefully somewhere other than mickey-Ds or chucky cheese)

took it 13 years to get to 200,000.

at that rate, it would have to be 32.5 years old...or the middle of 2030 (or something like that)

I can't touch ford man. I just enjoy my small victories.

You really get to know your vehicle after driving that far.
And, ain't it neat the way things like licensing and insurance get so cheap?

Nice. I bought a Mercedes with 275K, and sold it woth almost 400K. They're made to last, though. Congrats getting that mileage out of the Cavalier!
