Stories From the Red Deer “High K Club”

I found this page a little while back that features some cars that perfect for the HMC. The first entry is especially nice. I’ll talk about a few of these in the next couple of days. For those of you who don’t know, Red Deer is a city between the cities of Edmonton and Calgary in central Alberta. It’s near where I grew up. This is a business website, but it still gives a great overview of some long-lived vehicles.

Leading off this series of super long-life cars is a 1992 Toyota Camry owned by Lloyd E. that has done 1,305,000 kilometers, or 810,889 miles. No matter which system you use, that is an impressive number. He’s replaced the transmission and engine (both found in junkyards) and the thing keep on going. He did replace the car in 2008 when he gave it to his daughter. But from what I can tell, she is still driving it. Despite the drive train work, it’s still a major accomplishment. Well done.  Lloyd, if that car is still on the road, let us know!
