Not too often this happens. I think of it as an anniversary.

Great job! I'm hoping to reach 188888, 199999, and 200000 within the next year.

I'm hoping to reach 111111 099999 and 088888 within the next year, but alas those days will never return. I feel like I'm getting old; my car lives a fast life. I almost forgot my 1 year anniversary with this car was mid august. I calculated 19,800 miles over that year (23,700 up to now). I feel like that's kind of a lot. Too bad I have a job that I have no choice but to travel. On the brighter side I get to see the effect of any mods of driving style changes much faster than a typical driver, and I get to check out a bunch of cool places, thrift stores, farmer's markets, and restaurants.

Keep changing the good oil and 300,000km in another 5 years? Hypermilers must be the kindest drivers towards there cars.

That's 200,000 miles, I believe. That means he's already at 321,869 km.

That's cool. All my vehicles have over 200k now, since the Celeb rolled it earlier this year. My Trans Sport van has 275k and I am confident it will hit 300k easily. To me, 100k is still a baby, barely broken in.

Back when my first 6000 wagon hit 222222 I took a pic. Probably still have it somewhere.

Egg-zactly, make the best of a tough situation and win some medals along the way. If you break an egg, make an omelette, and all that.

What exactly do you do? I don't think I ever asked...
