200k

I just joined the "200K club" today with my 93 civic. Any other 200K or more cars out there?

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.

The green 99 Saturn has 232,000 miles on it but it came with most of those a few months ago so I don't have much information on it.

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.

Keep that '93 going.
Regards,
Bill

I have 359,500 on my 1987 Volvo Turbo wagon. I'm planning on replacing it at 400,000. I'm getting a little tired of the car. 21 years it's time for a new daily driver.
