    ok my 94 gt has 90K, but my buddy is selling his 97 gt for about $1,500 more that what i can get for my car, but his already has 130k. How many miles is everyone here working with? is 130k too much?

    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.

    cars these days are just gettin broken in at 50000

    my car has around 90000

    its all about how well the previous owners have taken care of the car...i would be disappointed if my car didnt make it to 200K easy
    well if i kept it that long

    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.

    Why not Brian? I know of some very quick (and still dependable) cars that have 100k-150k+ miles.

    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
