Dang, someone hasn't been enjoying driving that car much lol. I put 40k on my 66 Belvedere the first year I had it and it still had the poly teen in it!

Congratulations.
I turned my 69 Coronet odometer over to 0 in late 1980. Ironic my 69 Coronet purchased in 1979 and my 68 Road Runner purchased in 2016 both had 92k original miles.

That’s cool, have had a few low mile cars that were a lot of fun. just keeping them (mechanically) as they were was pretty easy too. My buddies give me crap about the car I built 11 years ago that has 3200 miles on it now.
They say “you need to get out more”

Congrats! Now, these critters ain't got an expiration date (or mileage) - keep peddling! :thumbsup:
(Come to think of it, I have no idea how many miles Fred has - think I'll go look!)
EDIT: 102, 968! I had no idea...

When I sold my 68 X - owned 48 yrs it had 57k on it. Of course it was stored for quite a long time while I relocated and traveled the country working.

Congratulations! I set the odo on my 1967 R/T back to "0" when I restored it and put it on the road in 1992. It rolled up 68,000 on Sunday.

My circle of friends has a tradition that when a vehicle turns 100,000, we do backwards donuts in an empty parking lot.
