Someone on here has a parent that owns a 92 Olds 88 w/ 410,000 miles. Most likely the EGRless.

Most I've ever seen was 318,000 on a 93 Park Avenue. Still purred like a kitten too!

Was at the auction last year!

Miles don't really mean much especially if they are highway miles. My pickup has about 288,000 or so and it runs like a champ!!

... but I noticed, when I'm at the boneyard, all the eligible parts donors for me car always have lower mileage, generally < 200,000k miles (320,000km). Maybe *once* have I seen a car like mine with more miles.
