The car had 38,000 original miles when I bought it from the original owner back in 2000. But I'm at 52,637 miles now. And truth be told, I have nowhere near as much knowledge and experience as you guys, about the longevity and potential of that engine. So I'm glad to have finally found a place like this forum to speak with people like you. Now I can learn from other people's real world experience. I don't know if my engine is a 100,000 mile workhorse or what the braking point is. I'm a very cautious driver and I'm not going out on the highway looking for competition. I just want to do my best in taking care of my piece of American auto history. So many thanks for everyone's contribution to my struggle.
