    I rolled 250,000 KMs on the prelude.

    While I am proud of the shape that she has held up in for a 11 year old car, I am also sad that she is an old lady.

    How many clicks ya'll got on your rides?

    This be her:

    I still have another 100k left in the old girl.
    Original everything pretty much. Only basic maintenance done to it (oil, axles, exhaust, brakes, timing belt -- only 'cos it was due, not b/c it broke). God love Toyota...invincible.

    Dad's Lincoln Town Car has 550 000km on it....his last one had 600 000 km on it when he sold it, still running with the new owner at 750 000km.

    93 Civic, 238k. Since I moved about a 10 minute walk from work the mileage has really slowed down though. I only rolled over 200k on Canada Day 2000 and there's a drive to Ottawa and back in there.

    Car is running better than ever though, wish it looked the same. :)

    But this one is worth mentioning. My grandmother lives in Toronto, scared to drive but still keeps her car for some reason. Anyway she has it serviced every 4 months, it's a 90 Accord with 4500km's on it! Dead serious, not 45 thousand...45 hundred on a 90!
