130k fuck yea thats alot, but im sure he has atleast 20k more if he takes care of it. At 90k youre ok, it all depends on what the previous owners have put the car through and how or what you will the rest of way....as for me, mine gots 82k :)

Well my 94 GT has 140,000 miles almost & runs smooth as silk... everything feels great still...these 302's have a great reputation for long lives, I expect to hit 200k with no worries.

Mine has 149,*** and still going strong. I've got heads/cam/intake and I threw a D1SC Procharger on it last weekend with no worries except maybe my transmission. Mine is a 5.0 tho.

My 97 has 146,181 on the clock. She runs strong, and I stick to a strict maint. schedule. When I put new front brakes on her next month she will get pads, rotors, wheel bearings and seals. If I find any sign of corrosion or rust on the calipers I will replace them to. Then I am going to flush the out the old brake fluid.
This car was a presant from my wife to me, so I will have it for a very long time. As a matter of fact my kids will have to fight over all of them when I turn room temperature.

130xxx on tranny and chassis.
2400 on the motor
less than a year on the paint

tranny needs to be flushed and refilled
o2 sensors need to be fixed

but other than that, she ran strong.

even when the 10 year old motor was going out, its like she didnt wanan die and kept pushing HAHA

dont trade
