Last car was the 88 cressida with 145k when I sold it.
Current car is a 90 cressida with 125k on the body and 175k on the engine. (got it with a blown engine for cheap. got the higher mileage engine for free)
Next car/daily driver while the cressida gets rebiult w/ new engine is a 87 S10 pickup with 105k
I have the bad habit of buying ****ty not-maintained cars for cheap and blowing the cost of the same car in top condition updating the maintenance so in the end I spend the same as if I bought a good condition car. the S10 I'm getting from a friend who I did all the update-maintenance for before I buy it :-p

Just reached 150K miles last week. Bought used at 36K miles. This is the first time I've had a car over 120K, so it's new for me. I am shooting for at least 200K, and I'll re-evaluate the car at that time.
Keep them coming, great to hear these high miles cars.

Im afraid i think i have the same problem with motorcycles.
Our 92 chevy 1500 W/T (basic chevy pickup) with the 4.3 v6 and 5 spd has orig engine and tranny at 159K
No worries here James my truck with 201 is a 1994 C1500 with a 4.3 daily driver and occasional hauler, great engine.
Im looking at a 1989 Civic HB DX with 213K that broke the timing belt, one owner. I think even if the valves got bent a replacement used head is cheap. Hopefully i should get the car on the road for a total cost of $200 which includes the cost of the car. And with the miles I'm seeing here i should get another 100k out of it, if i pick it up.
Gas?? Oh you mean the expensive smelly stuff Grandpa used to power his car with? Silly old Man.
