Beats my Ford Escort

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-17603598
Easily beats the 386,000 miles I got from 1.6 diesel Escort but I took less time.
I see that record is held by a Simon Templar type car  Smiley

Re: Beats my Ford Escort

One of the buses I regularly drive is M (prefix) registered, making it 30+ years old. It wasn't new to us having changed hands several times. But is now cherished by our team of engineers and runs like new. It is currently showing 533,000+ (admittedly K's) and is thought to be on the second time round.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Beats my Ford Escort

Highest mileage car I've had was 130k and would have gone on much longer if I'd not broken it up (MOT repair costs, lack of time/money etc). Engine and gearbox were absolutely sound.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
