HOLY CRAP...1 year of driving and 35,000 miles later...
I've oficially had my celica for 1 year today...I bought her new...and I have right close to 35,000 miles on her (DAMN!!!!)...she holds up great...I'm getting ready to do the rotora brakes, and next year will be the clutch and flywheel...I love my car, and that's probably the reason I drive so much...HOw many miles do you drive your car in a year???????

I'd like to see someone top this:


My dad's 2002 GT has nearly 90,000 miles on it (he's had it less than 2 years) eek


To have played and laughed with enthusiasm
and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.

cool

15K/year is about the national average. I think I'm right at the average. 30K+ means you're in the car 3 hours or more a day! Well, since its a Celica, its not a bad place to be


300,000 KM/Sec. Its not just a good idea, its the law.
