Thumbs Up On the Horizon....325,000 Miles

Well,

The title says it all...

I'm at 324,818 miles on my 94 SC1 as of 12/05/07.

182 Miles to the coveted 325,000!!!

I should be hitting the big 325K by either the end of the week or early next week. Will post pictures of my odometer when I hit it.





All of this on an original engine and original auto transmission.

No part of my engine has been rebuilt at all....the only thing that has been replaced in my engine is a timing chain at 100K.

Here's one step closer to 1 Million miles (although Luke is over halfway there!!!)

Congratulations. I'm not even close. I'm on my way to 150k but now that my wife drives it and works 25 miles away we'll get there pretty fast. Can't wait to see the pic. I love it when a saturn reaches high mileage. I brag about it to all my friends who say they are crap cars.

That's nice. I would easily run up 182 miles...maybe in 3-4 days, LOL...if not sooner. If I was about to hit 200k I would probably find a way to hit it sooner, LOL.

I should hit 200k next year, I think.

Congrats! Hoping mine lasts that long, and longer. Same for yours.

Only have about 138,500. Bought her with 135,600 in July so obviously I don't drive much at all. Work a lot and work is 1.8 miles away. Though I just got a new job that is 5 miles away so we'll see!

Not at all!

I think SaturnManiac did that with hers so she could reach 150,000.

Happy 325,000 Miles 12/10/07 6:20 AM 1994 SC1

Morning evernyone,

Well; I was planning on hitting 325,000 on Saturday. That didn't happen. I was actually at 324,999 as I pulled into my driveway when I got home from work.

I hit 325,000 in my neighborhood this morning. Making sure to take my digital camera with me; I shot a few pictures; but it is hard as hell to shoot closeup pictures of your dash when it is dark outside....

Nevertheless, I got a few pictures, that I will have to clean up and upload tonight into my gallery when I get home.

Here's to another 325,000 miles!!! 1 more step closer to a million!

Oil change was done last weekend. I'm pretty anal about the oil (eww I know that sounds nasty)....

The car burns a little bit of oil...not much but I probably put maybe 2-3 quarts in between oil changes...sometimes it's closer to 4-5, it really depends on the weather...but a good average would be about 2 1/2 to 3 quarts of oil between oil changes.

All of my driving is highway driving, so my moving parts are always in constant motion at 70 mph on the highway....

I'm still:

85-90% Highway driving
10% City Driving (After I get off the highway, it's a 7 mile commute to my house, and stop and go traffic through 13 traffic lights)

Thumbs Up 325,000 Miles 12/10/07

I now have 2 pictures in my gallery!!

As I had stated in another post; it was very dark outside and I kept getting a glare from the flash off of my digital camera. I tried a few of my settings. If you look closely, you can make out 325000

I hit that on December 10, 2007

1994 SC1 with Original Engine and Original Automatic Transmission

I also took a picture before I left from work showing the odometer with an additional 32 miles on the clock at 325032

Enjoy!!! I wish the 325,000 Mile picture was better, but all of them that I shot look like this....this was the best one.
