The High Mile Club’s Hall-of-Fame is becoming quite the competitive scene. We’ve seen a number of cars drop out of the top 50 in the past year. Simply having 500,000 miles is no longer enough to get you in. But that didn’t stop Mike Lipperman. I did a quick blurb about Mile and his 2001 Avalon back in 2014. He had crossed the 500k mile mark and was featured in the news. But his Avalon was recently bumped from the the top 50.

Well, Mike and his Avalon are back with a vengeance. His Toyota now sits at 617,300 miles and the local news did another story on him when he hit 600,000 miles. That means Mike shooting back into the top 50 at #33, up from #52. Well played, Mike. Keep us updated on the Avalon.

I have some great news. Today, High Mile Club Exclusive member Paul Silva and his 2001 Hyundai Sonata have entered the Top fifty. I blogged about him a while ago, and at that time he was determined to get on the list. Well the time has come and Paul has done it. He sent me this photo as proof.

Paul enters the list at rank 44, currently sitting at 500,750 miles. This pushes¬†Rosicella Flores’ Camry down to 51. I have decided to keep her on the page, as she is also an exclusive member of the HMC. However, if too many people get bumped down, I might have to start a separate list just for exclusive members.

Congratulations, Paul. This is well earned. Paul has told me his transmission is toast, but he has a replacement lined up and wants to get the Sonata to 1,000,000 miles. We are cheering you all the way.  Keep using those high-milers!
