So, we’ve brought you quite a selection of high-mile vehicles since we first started this blog. Now I’d like to turn things over to you. In the comments, share your current odometer reading, your car, and your high-mile dreams. Also, is there anything specific you’d like to see here? Let me know.

I’ll start things off. I drive a 2013 Mazda Demio with skyactiv engine. My goal is to get that thing to at least 300, 000 kms. If I can do that, we’ll see about 500k.  I’m currently at 14,300km. It’s going to be a while.


Now, let me tell you, it’s impossible to verify every claim of mileage out there. A lot of these stories come from forums  and websites where hearsay is the word of the hour. Despite this, I still like to hear about these people and their cars.  Shirley Fender and her 1989 Mustang GT  went the distance,  and she posted about here on Ford Social to share her achievement.  I’m willing to take people at their word, and so I’ll salute you Shirley, I if you find us here at High Mile Club, let us know if the Mustang is still out there on the road. BTW, let us know if a dealer or company actually gave you something for showing off your high mile car. It would be interesting to see how often this happens.

Update: I dug up this article about her, and it seems like she was aiming for a million miles on the original engine. Is also appears her story is quite legit.  I wonder how close she is to that goal. Shirley, if you are out there, check in with us and tell us how your car is doing.
