How many miles do you have on your car/truck?

As i search for a civic as a gas saver (a VX to be exact) i find that most of the civics i look at have massive miles. Now i know that Hondas can run forever if maintained but I'm just curious how many miles do you guys have on your vehicles, original engines im speaking?

I have 227k miles, and drive about 23k miles a year. I replaced a few things along the way, like the oil pump, water pump, crank +rod bearings, valvestem seals and valvesprings. But it's still original! Still on the same pistons, rings, valves and headgasket. As a sportscar it's led a hard life.

Focus (damn thing just won't sell...) has 45k miles on it, bike has 8300mi.

The Mustang just turned over 97k on the body, and IIRC 5K miles on the drivetrain.

I have 248,600 miles on my VX, I bought it a little less then 3 years ago with 204,000 miles from a guy who only did oil changes, replaced tires, and exaust and had owned it for 100,000 miles, I assume he never changed the tranny oil because at 232,000 miles the main bearing wore out, the engine has perfect compression, body has a little rust but nothing bad, overall I really like the car and assume that this car will last me 10s of thousands more miles.

1998 Jetta TDi. Haven't begun driving it yet, but if the numbers people are posting on tdiclub are any indication, I will eventually be joining the high rollers club. My poll answer was for my TDi, which has about 120k on the odo.

My Nissan Bluebird ('Bluey') : 177,000 miles or there abouts. Was fine with doing a LOT of EOCing (e.g. 10 mile commute, maybe 40-60 starts each way) Stopped driving because I came to NZ. Plan to bring her over sometime.

My original Nissan Bluebird (1.8 Auto) about 240,000 miles, original transmission, managed to run with no oil a few times, no water a few times, etc etc, managed to blow head gasket by driving around for 60 miles with temp above 'high' on the temp gauge, shoddy replacement = only lasted another 90,000 miles, leaking oil/water externally, then finally blew a waterway while driving (huge amounts of white smoke, but engine still ran fine). I still have this car and will, one day, bring over to NZ, and restore it.

My current Nissan Bluebird (Bluey II) - about 103000 miles - nearly brand new
