Mine has 186000 on her, sat all winter 2 years ago, haven't had the oil changed yet, it never see'* below 4000RPM, tires are bald, have this grinding noise in the front, back seats are soaked, lights come on during the day not at night, gas pedal sometimes sticks to the floor, brake pedal really spongee. Lets see, what else....OH, and the paint is peeling off! I don't think this car will ever die.

What do you see in your crystal UIM BillBoost37??
