Really? Only 197K miles after 22 years?? Aw shucks, this car is not even 2/3's or perhaps 1/2 way through its usable life!!

Congrats, this is great news!!

311,000 miles - Holy canolli!
The blessings of liberty erode in my country.
Gov't's grown bigger, but a chance exists that it will be reduced. I'm cautiously hopeful.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
