While checking out the Carfaire, I spotted a 1967 Mustang available for sale and, out of curiosity (since I’m younger than the vehicle) looked over its mileage. I nearly fell over when I saw 900,000 miles written on its description.
That must be a misprint, I thought. But this article in the Mercury News shows that around fifteen percent of Californians (never mind the rest of the nation, which would probably increase the numbers) drive cars a decade or older, racking up easily over 200,000 miles. And when the owners are asked about their high-mileage vehicles, like why do they continue to maintain them, the answers are as interesting as the miles are daunting (though I didn’t see any mileage numbers that came close to matching this Mustang's.)
