Hit this milestone last week! It's starting to show it's age in its performance, so I'm thinking about getting something else.

I envy you. You are one of the few who take good care of their car so it lasts this long. Also because you have driven your car not showed it off in some garage. Well done. Congrats.

250,000 on an F-body is impressive! I have got you beat with VW though.

I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about people who never drive their car. the people who put less than 1000 miles on their cars every year.

Impressive, & I thought I was doin good on mine. I'm only rockin 180k on my stock short block & oil pump. We put the H/C set-up on it at 100k & still had original cross hatchings in the cylinders. I'm confident it'll make it past 200k easily.

I'll never get rid of mine due to mileage, its cheaper to replace things than get another 5-6yr car payment. Plus with these not being made anymore its something to hold on to for me anyway.

You make me feel better. I got a sickening feeling rolling over to 100k. I'm sitting at 114k now.

24,645 miles so far. Not bad for being 10 years old. Obviously not my daily driver. Usually only take it out once a week or so and to go to local car shows.

125k+ here, it had 99K when i got it. I racked up 25k in under 2yrs. Though it has not gained 1k miles in the last year or so. Waiting for the new California emmisions to take effect jan 1st. (No more sniffer for 2000+ models) :devil:

Original motor/tranny?

Original motor/rebuilt stock tranny

Thanks all! Yes I do try to take care of it. It is my daily driver. It's been from Atlanta to Portland, OR and back; from Atlanta to Chicago and back a dozen times; plus a two hour commute to and from work daily for 5 years. It still turns heads and I still get the occasional "nice car!"

My desire to not have another car payment is the reason I've kept it this long. Plus.....these LS1's are a lot of fun to drive!
