Car Reaches One Million Miles - October 25th 2011, 05:56 AM

A interesting snippet I came across reading the news, a man has reached over one million miles with his 1990 Honda Accord!

This is actually kind of cool. In my car I had last year, I couldn't even imagine going to 100,000 miles let alone 1,000,000. It's a pretty cool accomplishment.

My Honda is about to break 150,000. I'll probably pass it down to my sister in a few years.


Often I lie wide awake, thinking of things I could make.
But I donít seem to have the parts to build them.
I am so scared of what will kill me in the end, for I am not prepared.
I hope I will get the chance to be someone, to be human.

Lol... part of the trick is to not use your car when they salt the roads in winter.


"I don't care about politics"
Then politics doesn't care about you either. Truth. You've got to make your voice heard, if you want to be listened to. But that's too logical for some people, so let me go a step further. Not making your voice heard, leaves other people free to hijack it by speaking on your behalf, even if they don't actually give a shit about you. That's politics. So, make your voice heard. That's not a quote from anywhere. That's just me.

I heard this on the radio this morning and I was like "wow".
Seriously, I couldn't imagine having a car that makes it to 1,000,000 miles.. It's a pretty cool accomplishment.

What's the circumference of the planet? If I was to guess from my head I'd say somewhere not too far under 50,000 Km.... so its like this car's been round the earth 20 times. Maybe 22. I wonder what % of his life this guy spends driving. Also I wonder how depreciation has impacted the price of that car. It's either going to be worth as much as a box of tissues... or perhaps be worth a surprisingly large amount, because it's "famous" now.

He drove his car about 47,619 miles a year. Which is about 4 times the average.

Depending on the condition of the car, it'd probably be wroth about $2500, maybe more with the notoriety. Mine was a 98 and had 120k on it, and ran me about $42

My Honda has 202,041 miles on it. It's a 1998 model, so I'm not on pace to meet this guy's level, but I'm still doing quite well.

I saw it on the news and thought that it was so cool. I can't imagine any car that my family owns ever having that many miles on it, they always end up breaking first. He must take great care of his car. xD
