I know what you mean, I was trying to take a picture with my phone when my mileage was at 66,666 but I didn't get it in time. :banghead:

i dont see why ppl wish they had low mileage car. to me, i measure my car's life by the amount of miles its put on, not the number of years i've had it. so if i put on 100k miles in 3 yrs, even better... as long as i'm the original owner. i know i got my money's worth and my mods didn't go to waste! =P

I think the age says a lot more than the miles. Lots of cars under highway driving can last a LONG time...but a daily driver that goes short distances is a true workhorse if it holds up well.

(My '98 V6 hit 100k about 3-4 months ago, I'll post the cameraphone pic when I can find it!)

I needed fuel and washer fluid when my big day came.

Hey mycarsavw, what can I say? The people that pay my internet connection here (etc) have been demanding more of me lately ;)

As a guy who resets his Trip-O every fuel fillup, I just did a doubletake :D

i see your point, but in the end, the car covers distance, not time. if it could do both, even better... but distance is first and foremost important to me. as long as i get 150k out of my car, i'll be happy. currently at 40k in 2.5yrs of ownership.
