Thursday night I left on what was to be the first long distance roadtrip in my 92GT since buying it this past November.I drove from Reading PA to Aurora illinois in approx. 12 hours and 770miles. With the car just turning 130,000 mi.on the odometer I was filling the tank everytime it got down to 1/4 tank (280-300miles) and I could top it off with 7-8 gallons at each fill and that was while running the AC. I had no problems other than a rear swaybar bracket breaking on an offramp and the car used little or no oil the whole trip.

When I got to Aurora Friday morning I unpacked my car and did the usual 4th of July stuff,BBQ'd with some friends ,got a short tour of Aurora and Batavia(sp) then went to see the fireworks.Saturday we drove down to Challenge Park Xtreme and I played some paintball, got to check out the new north shore mtn bike park and got to see some of the local freestylers ride their bikes in the ramp park.

Left Sunday afternoon and other than traffic and bad weather the drive home was uneventfull but the car performed flawlessly

Glad to hear it. I've made 1 long road trip in my Escort, and it was from here (Montgomery, Alabama) to back home (Reading, PA believe it or not). My car also performed flawlessly, though it was kinda tough climbing the mountains of Virginia (very thin air).

Maybe next time I'm in PA all of us Reading and Reading area people should get together and have a meet. I unfortunately will not have the scort though, as it would be damn near impossible to make a 1,000 mile road trip with a baby in the back of a 2 door hatchback.

Anyway, glad to hear your car made the trip fine, and I'm glad to hear you had a good vacation.

The ERDT guys are working on getting a meet together soon but still havent decided on a time or place.

Next time you are in the area let me know I'm sure we could get at least a few people together
