I guess the largest repair that has ever been done to is having the clutch replaced twice, the front end rebuilt a few times (ball joint, tie rod ends, steering rack) since it was new. About everything that's ever been done to the car is just normal wear items. I think the longest trip I ever drove it on was about 1100 miles round trip, but it made that trip several times back when it was younger. The car was bought new by my brother in '88, I bought it from him in '93 with 146K miles on it so I have put 354K miles on it myself. The way it got so many miles racked up on it was through my brother and myself driving it to work on construction sites for almost 12 years, usually driving 50-150 miles a day. I still average driving it around 50 miles a day. It is the original engine (never rebuilt) and original 4 speed transmission.jfarcas said:That IS awesome. What major things have needed done with it? What's the longest trip you've been on with it? How many miles have you put on it yourself? Original motor, trans?
That's 2-3 hours that you don't have to spend with the wife. So maybe it helps maintain your sanity. LOLWJC said:The thought of driving that far to work is absolutely terrifying. How can anyone maintain any level of sanity driving 2-3 a day to get to work?
