While leading the flatbed tow truck carrying my partially broken-down '98 Chevy S10 home from town, my '09 'Rolla was about to turn "27" (27k miles), so I thought I'd have a little fun -- and here is the result:

I just turned over 13,000 miles on my 2010 'S'

I got it June 28th, 2010, so I've had it for a couple months less than 2 years.

It sits a lot and I really only drive shorter trips.

Most of the miles that she's had put on her are highway miles driving from Michigan to Ohio to visit family.

You're like me Mike, I always watched the odo for big numbers or paterns like 123,321 etc... here's a pic of my last biggie.... the miles are real, but I have to admit the speedo pointer has been Gimped.

It's a good thrill to capture mileage markers. My Corolla had 230,000 miles on it. (1994).

My Corolla(2003 CE) had the odometer stop at 299999km.Now I have to keep track of the kilometers by watching the trip meter,which still works.Currently I'm at 322000km.

Total repairs to date,one wheel bearing and one seized brake caliper.

This is a pic of my 98 corolla. I got it for $1500 almost five years ago, it had 212k miles.

 

In 2010, when i joined the forum it had 245k miles..

Im waiting on it to turn 300k to rebuild the engine. With the piston/rings problem out of the equation im hoping it will at least give me another 200k!!!
