You're about 2,000 over where you should have taken the pic.

That's more than enough for a trip to the Moon.

My 1985 Nissan pickup was still running strong at 235 K.

I have had three Nissan 4x4 P/Us over the last 12 years, all never gave me one bit of trouble over a few hundred thousand miles. Have a Toyota Tacoma 4x4 now and it should last awhile itself

Slightly off topic, but it does have an odometer in it...



Yes, Neons really do go that fast...

1985 Ford F150 with the straight 6 engine.

It was my dad's truck for 10 years or so, and he drove a delivery route.

He gave it to me when he thought it was on it's last leg.
I've owned it for the last three years.

Photo of it rolling over 300,000 miles.

Edit: The tranny has been rebuilt, but the engine is untouched.
The straight-6 (LS6?) has a reputation of being a 300,000 mile engine.
(so I'm scared to drive it now)

'93 Nissan pickup. This is after putting some much larger tires on at about 120k that caused the speedo (and therefore odometer) to be 20% lower than actual. I drove it another 40k or so after that before I finally replaced it.

Jeez I guess my 2001 isn't as worn out as I thought with 22k miles on it

This was my '91 Toyota Camry hitting 200K:



Finally donated it to charity at 240K - mechanically it was still fine, but the salty Cleveland winters were starting to do a number on some of the lower body panels.

I had a Nissan Stanza Wagon a 1987 if I remember correctly. It looked like a minivan wit 2 sliding doors. It had just turned over on 100,000 when my cousin gave it to me after sitting about 18 months. He said the front end was about to fall out of it and the computer was out making it run rough. A can of heat in the 18 month old gas fixed the computer problem and a new tire fixed the front end. The thing had 3 tires with less than 500 miles on it.Why the moron only bought 3, I'll never know.It had 299,987 miles on it when the tree fell on it.

Wow, I have a 1996 Explorer with 230K+ on it. Original engine, drivetrain, etc. I will admit that it's going to need some work before summer, but she still rolls down the road. I put 1000 miles on it in the last 5 days.

Will try to get some pics tomorrow.

I had 118,700 today.

ETA in my '97 Explorer. The bastard was nearly perfect mechanically up until about 100,000 miles, then the tranny went out (not a big suprise) and now I am having 4WD/drivetrain issues. That, and the fucking heater won't work, and will cost $1000 to fix (fuckers at Ford screwed it up in the first place by putting the wrong part in the blender door box when they built the truck). FUCK, no more Fords.

This may be slightly off topic, but i wonder on average how many revolutions an enginie goes through in 100k miles. Obviously there are gearing differences, etc..., but I wonder what the average is.

Well, let's see. Probably an average of 2k rpm. A car probably averages about 20 mph over it's life span.
2,000 rpm, 60 minutes in an hour =120,000 revolutions per 20 miles.

5,000 segments of 20 miles each equalling 100k miles.

120,000 X 5,000 =600,000,000.

That's my guess. Six hundred million revolutions per 100k miles.

Give or take 10 to 15 revolutions

now that is funny.

I would guess that the average MPH would be a bit higher, like 30 or so, but lets just say your right.

Isn't it damn crazy that we are able to make an engine do over a billion revolutions without a glitch. I think it is. I know some of you will say, "duh, there is oil to help and stuff", but regardless, I think it is pretty neat.
