231,800 on my VX, origonal engine with perfect compression, and 140,000 on the current tranny, and the mpg keeps going up.
I did finely get a low mileage car, 160,000 on my new 1983 civic hatch, I wonder if it's broken in yet.

Yeah, I knew a friend who's mom had a festiva with 420,000 or something crazy like that.

I know this doent count but my brother is a Honda Tech at the local dealers. He once bought and Accord with 624,000 miles on it just so he could tell people he had a honda with 600k on it. I ran fine but he sold it because he hated the 4 door look.

15 - 20 MPH winds @ minus 30 degrees F ? How do you live? Do you breathe?

But when the "guys" are all bragging about how many miles they have on their vehicles . . . THIS IS GAS SAVERS not GAS BURNERS!! So I thought some may be missing the point!

I take your point.

But I'd also wager that most of the people here with high miles vehicles bought them second-hand (or third- or fourth-hand) with the high miles already on them.

I don't think you can conclude that they're all driving "excessively" just from the odometer values posted.

Buying new is for suckers. What a hideous way to loose cash.

True. I bought my car in 07/2004 with 200,900 miles. Since then (28 months) I have put on 56,000 miles. I used to have to commute very long distances for work, school, and my then girlfriend (now wife). I don't drive my car to simply rack up miles, but racking up miles is an effect of driving.
