100,000 Miles and Going Strong

by golbguru on September 1, 2006

My car just clocked 100,000 miles and I am writing this entry to mark the occasion. It might be a few years before I have another car that will run 100,000 and present me a similar photographic opportunity. Either I will have to buy a very old car to make this happen again soon, or wait for anywhere between 4 to 8 years for a relatively new car to clock that many miles. So, here is a commemorative snap of the odometer at the moment it showing the exact miles, for all of you to savor the moment. Ask if you want to get a high resolution version of this.

100_5055-3 cars

All those who are aware of how fast the odometer ticks when you are driving, will appreciate the coincidence that I was able to stop my car at this exact moment (to be precise, within plus or minus 0.5 miles) and had a decent camera, that can take close-up pictures, readily available. And yes, tampering with the odometer is a federal offence, so it hasnt been fudged with or anything.

According to Edmunds.com the value of the car is now $1922 (Private Party) and $1405 (Trade-In). The car is a 1997 model (sorry, won’t disclose the brand). I bought it used about 4 years ago for $4300, spent about $2000 in maintenance/repairs, and have driven more than 50,000 miles since then. In terms of “cost per use”, that will be 12.6 cents per mile (excluding fuel). Not once has it been towed (had to push it once for about 50 yards though!).

Since you won’t disclose the brand, I have one question: American/Foreign?

Anyways, that’s one thing that I wished I could have done. Buy a nice used car like this for under $5000. My problem was that when I started working I needed a car right away and I didn’t have any money on hand or money for a down payment on something reasonable. So I had to finance a 1-2 year old car.

Oh well. Best believe though, I’ll try to knock out the payments early and I’ll definitely drive it till it falls apart. Right now I’m at 2,000 miles. Here’s hoping for another 98,000.

2 Daisy 07.01.07 at 5:33 pm

Brand? That be a Chevy, I’m pretty sure. Mine just logged 111,111 miles a few weeks ago, and that’s definitely the same speedometer. And yeah, we’re gonna drive the wheels off it.

But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.

I would also advise you to put a “stop loss” in your trade, which
means if the stock is going down against what you thought
it would do, it is sold for you automatically. In part, it is
growing in popularity because it allows for quick profits to be
made from the smallest price movements. Swing trading is
especially suitable for the new trader to gain some experience
in the stock market.

78 leaky gut cure book 08.21.14 at 1:04 pm

Even short stints of stress creates problems such as constipation or diarrhea.

Some of these diseases that cause the disorder are even further aggravated once
you develop a leaky gut. Taking antihistamines (even prescription antihistamines) wouldn’t phase the allergic
reaction, and would cause a rebound effect after wearing off, so that when they wore off, the allergic reaction would
intensify, leaving me worse than before taking it.
