We start this blog with the story of Mike Lipperman and his 2001 Toyota Avalon. I found the news article here. He says his car is still on its first engine and transmission and that it’s now over 500000miles. That is one amazing achievement, Mike. Well done. I’d like to keep abreast of what is currently happening to these cars, so if you happen to have any recent news about Mike and his Avalon, feel free to share it in the comments.
