Well I guess the headgaskets on Escorts only last 200K, Wile-E wasn't far over when it popped, Marvin just rolled over 300K Km, so he's coming up 200K miles soon, might have the motor swapped before it makes it though.
I remember The RoadWarrior..To understand who he was, you have to go back to another time..the world was powered by the black fuel & the desert sprouted great cities..Gone now, swept away..two mighty warrior tribes went to war & touched off a blaze which engulfed them all. Without fuel, they were nothing..thundering machines sputtered & stopped..Only those mobile enough to scavenge, brutal enough to pillage would survive. The gangs took over the highways, ready to wage war for a tank of juice
I've got two '91 Civic sedans. Bought the first one with 135k on it - now has 265k. Second one I bought a year ago for a winter beater/parts car. (It sheds weight every day in the form of rust!) Runs good with 225k on it. Both average about 41 mpg - 38 mpg in the winter and 44 mpg in the warmer months.
