Yes sir, 302k before catastrophic failure. I did replace the UIM when it became my car at 274k, at that point it was still original.

That'* what'* happening here. Still way, wayy too nice to become a parts/donor car, but beyond the point of no return without significant money :(

I'll probably get my hands on some bondo/fibreglass/primer/paint and get the car at least looking presentable for a couple years... but somehow I think rust isn't nearly as big of a problem in GA :(

I've got pics on my phone of it turning 300k,but the engine did fail at 302k. I have put an L67 into the car, and I will get around to finishing the swap one of these days. She will ride again :P
