the original comment was about hitting 250K by WCBF. didn't think it would get done, now it looks like a certainty.

This wasn't about total miles, because I expect it to go for at least double what it is now, and if it does die, it will be reborn.

Plus, it'* a 97, not a 90. I think there is a distinction from a 20 yr old car with 300K and a 10 yr old with 300K

Sorry, but I'm not sure I understand the comment, are you saying that cars we're built better in 90. or rather it'* easier when you spread the miles over 16 years rather than 10. I'm not disputing, just trying to understand your point.

Thanks.

I think he is saying that the 90 has had a few more years to build up the miles.

its harder to put on 300K in 10 years that it is to put 300K on in 16

Ok... I got your point now. You would figure though that if you put more miles in less time than there is a great chance that they're highway miles, which are actually better on the car. Either way.......Point taken.

Good luck and hope it doesn't give you to many problems.

Thanks
