I've never owned a car with this many miles on its original engine before.

160,000 miles

Here, that could be a record for the lowest mileage car someone has ever bought.

If it weren't for the MSM, it has my lowest mileage beat by 12k miles.

Assuming I ever get the Miata back on the road, she'll turn over 130k pretty quick.
You know what they say about assuming though...

That's practically new. So far I've put 280+ on an Escort before I wrecked it, 216 on my Cavalier when I traded it in and now I'm driving a Malibu with 370k. The Wife bought a Fiat in October and has 7500 on it so far.

In reply to Wally:

+1 for the duct tape on the dash.

That's not duct tape, that's the General's finest carbon fauxber.
