    110,000 miles on a '98. Just bought it on a used car lot. Amazing condition, runs like a top, goes like a shot.

    1998 ZX2 HOT with 113k miles.

    Just put a clutch in it, but the throwout bearing gouged the crap out of the boss around the input shaft, so I also had to put a trans in. I had a '97 SPI trans with only 38k miles on it sitting around, so I put that in it....

    It needs an alternator (the lights flare and the voltage shoots up to 18V when revved over 3500 RPM or so--regulator's shot, I guess) and a little bit of other work (sunroof won't pop the back end down anymore, heater/ac fan doesn't work), but it's a backup car for the wagon, which was where that '97 SPI trans was supposed to be going. If I can get the boss on the ZX2 trans repaired, I guess I'll use *that* for the wagon and enjoy the close-ratios and 4.10 rear.... Maybe I'll swap out 5th gear for something taller. I've got a while to think about it.... :D

    C ya,
    Dutch

    UPDATE 19-May-2009: Heater controls were just left unplugged when the PO installed the stereo. Plugged it all back in, vacuumed and refilled the A/C and it's blowing ice cubes now.... :twisted:

    UPDATE 22-May-2009: Replaced alternator and coil pack that was fried by the old alternator dumping 19V intermittently on the electrical system.... Runs much better now....

    UPDATE 31-May-2009: Had to replace the Autozone clutch after only 2k miles and about 2 mos. at the end of May due to it doing a fine impression of a grenade while driving on a back road north of Tucson. :eek:
    I got a South Bend Clutches TZ clutch and now wish I'd bought that one first.... What a great clutch!! :twisted:


    UPDATE 1-Aug-2009: Replaced rear wheel bearings a couple weeks ago. Now up to 116525 miles....

    1999 with 193,000 on it. I have only had this car about a year, but have driven it all around the country and have put over 20,000 miles on it just this year (was at around 172k when I got it). It still drives very good, although I did have to replace the timing belt a couple of months ago. Other than that, still running strong.

    99 MTX with 88k on it. Bought a little over a year ago when it had 62k on it. It is in great shape, and runs great. I am one of those hypermiler guys, but I don't go overboard like some. Since I have owned this car, I have averaged over 40 miles per gallon. Check it out over at ecomodder.com by clicking the graphic in my sig.

    My buddy's has 409,067 miles right now! The motor has never been rebuilt, so needless to say, it's pretty tired! it is currently sitting in his yard right now, as it's running on 3 cylinders.
