You're lucky it'* all highway miles. There'* a couple guys with high miles that use their cars for delivering pizza.....and theirs are still going strong. The way you drive, mostly highway, it'll last you for awhile.

Well my car is a dog so I guess my 150000miles should be considered dog miles. So what would you say about that? I mean how does that dog year calculation work anyway? Mr. Smart Administrator this should rock your brain. LOL

The general rule for traditional "dog years" is to multiply the dog'* current age by seven. For example, my dog Cotton is eight "human years" old. Therefore, Cotton is 7 * 8 = 56 "dog years" old. (No, of course this isn't scientific. And yes, there are better estimators for a dog'* age-based maturity )

Using the above logic, if your car has 150,000 "dog miles," it has only (150,000 / 7 = ) 21400 "human miles." Of course, this would imply that (1) your car is getting old before its time (2) your car has a tendency to chase other cars.

Actually the Harley is the meat of choice I am still dealing with this problem. I figure once it has it plastic surgery it will be fine. But to date I still feel it pull when a big bike goes by. lol. Just for the record I have nothing against bikes. Import or Domestic.

Is "Mr. Smart administrator ok or is it better to call you the great omnipotent one?? Any preferences?

Don't try demi-god. That one is spoken for already. I prefer "esteemed administrator". Makes him feel like royalty, and suckingup never hurt anyone. Of course, if his head swells too much, he won't be able to get into that pretty red car of his.

my bro has an 89 LE with 210k on original engine, tranny (had some work i think), and same exhaust system. I would say that is pretty good for such an old car.

If you look on the driver side door jamb it should have the exact date the car was made unless the sticker has faded too much to read.
