Default just hit 175,000

hi all i just wanted to celebrate my baby getting to 175,000 miles. she is proof that gm made fantastic cars at one time, shes got the same trans and same engine, different superchager bc we didnt know that you had to lubricate the bearings in the nose cone, but we did figure this out after the 3rd supercharger lol, lesson learned

I'm trying to get at least 225,000 out of my Buick. Hopefully it can be done!

175,000? She'* barely over the hill. Keep on your maintenance and it'll last you until you say, "I'd rather make car payments than fix this!"

Happy 175K and congrats!

I'm on 135K myself, and plan to see at least 300K before I put my PA to rest.

I know of a '94 Park Avenue Ultra that had over 400k on it, and that was more than six years ago.

Nice! She'* barely broken in, the 3800 is an awesome engine, it'* a shame they're not putting them in new vehicles anymore.

My Silverado has just about 150,000 miles, only 50 miles on the rebuilt LS6 though.
