Mine has somewhere around 330k on the clock. It's a '93 Honda Accord wagon. I would post pics, but it's in the shop right now. It had an issue with the crank pulley about two years ago, and the shop that "fixed" it at the time, apparently used zero new parts, and did a piss poor job. I should get it back tomorrow.

ETA: It was actually in great looking condition, besides the thin looking paint, until my dad backed into it in his work truck one morning. Now it's got a big dent above the drivers side rear wheel.

My beloved Park Avenue had 267,000 miles on her when she was taken before her time.
You can even see the brand new Goodyears in the photo.

This is what she looked like a couple of months before that accident.

Got rid of a 94 Corolla with about 260k on it last fall. If it wasn't starting to rust, I might still have it. Now I have a 03 Civic with 75k for a commuter car an a 01 Tacoma with 105k.

Mine are such beaters that the odometers have all stopped working (fucking VDO gauges.)

The newest vehicle has 190k:

The other two are north of 300k.

My wife's Honda is 10 years old and my Toyota is 5 years old. We're not high mileage drivers though, since we don't have a commute.

Both of them look very nice for their age, despite living in the Rust Belt.

My '85 6.2L Diesel Suburban had 318k on it when I stopped driving it in 2000. It still ran great but had windows that didn't work, A/C that didn't work in south GA, etc. It was time to move on.

Now my '98 Cherokee has 160k on it and still running strong.

Used to be at 100k you were on a wing and a prayer. I don't think any my dad's cars made it to 150k even.

Sell the camry to some mexicans for $5K. You'll most likely get it. When my sister looked to trade her old cutlass in the dealer was going to give her like $1K for it. She took it to the Del Rio area and got $2500 for it.

102k on a 00' grand prix. It's a POS and falling apart already, had transmission work done twice and it still fucked up, plus i can tell the suspension is shot.

It's the sterotypical POS UAW/gm product.

I trade off my daily driver.

My 2005 GMC Canyon has about 71,100
My 1998 ford Escort has about 88,200

Both are great cars.

The Ford was my first car and has been put through hell, and still runs great. It needs oil, new front brake pads, and all the bulbs in the dash have burned out so I'm driving it with some of those lights with the sticky tape on the bottom stuck to my steering column. Oh, and I have duct tape covering the little panel where the backup light is. I broke it on the guard rail on Highway 26 just outside of Banks, OR. Did a 360 on ice during a freak snowstorm about four years ago, and I just haven't had the time or money to get the panel replaced.

The GMC I bought this year because I really needed and wanted a truck. The only issue with it so far is that it has an electrical short somewhere that causes AC settings 1, 2 and 3 to cut out randomly. I love it though. I still giggle when I get on the freeway and punch it and let that other cylinder kick in.

'96 E350 w/351w. Tranny and rear #2. It goes between 100-400 miles a day with 1000-4000 lbs of office supplies. I can't get a body pic now unless I get out and run along side of it at 65. Built Ford tough!

Here's my other ride. I swap out with the Honda from time to time. It's at home right now, and I can't remember the mileage exactly. I think it's knocking on 300k. '98 5.9 4x4.

We had a thread like this a couple years ago, somebody had a pic of a Geo Metro, or something similar, that had missing lights, bungee cords holding it together, and other stuff. It was epic.
I wonder if it survived long enough for clunker trade in?

As of this morning, 324,025 miles on my 1997 Ford E-250. Nothing really done to it other than brakes a few times, a battery, plugs, etc.

Damn thing starts every morning so I feel compelled to drive it. Although she's starting to exhibit some piston slap in the mornings when it's cold out and the reverse clutch pack is starting to make a little noise too. I am completely impressed with the durability of this drivetrain package.

I could take a picture, but it's just your typical Ford van. Think of a big white refrigerator on its side with wheels in the corners and thats what it looks like.

Just traded a 02 Ram 1500 5.9l, had 108xxx on the clock.

My work truck, an 01 Ram 1500 5.9l has somewhere north of 180k. No smoke, no leaks, and she burns no oil. Been a great truck, barring the one little episode where I set her on fire. Thankfully, I seem to have been forgiven.

currently driving a 1992 Pontiac Grand Am (4cyl) with 102k as my "commuter" car - 15 miles per day. It has no reverse, LOL If it didn't have ice cold A/C, a good radio and amazing fuel economy, then I would consider moving on to something else. Until something actually breaks, I'll keep on driving it.

My girlfriend has the nice car. 2008 Jeep Liberty.

If I get home before sunset, I will try to take a picture.

02 mercury mountaineer, 145,000 miles, put new brakes and tires on it but nothing huge. Hope to get her to 200,000 miles

01 alero gls, 165,000 , head gasket was leaking bad so I sold it for $2500, told the dealer it had a bad head gasket, he still bought it

My dads got a 1991 chevy 1/2 ton 4x4 ext cab with 265,000 hard towing miles on it, still runs strong, looks like shit though, Im convinced those body style chevys were the best ever made
