Hey, guys, this is in Longview, Texas.

On my way to work this morning, I pulled up next to a beautifully maintained Blue 1980 280ZX coupe. It was lovely - no obvious body problems - looked showroom quality to me sitting in my car. Anyway, we talked at the light a bit, and he told me that it had 513000 mi on it, still going strong. If the engine bay & interior look anything close to as good as the exterior, that car is mint.

I'd say we all have a lot fewer worries about the strength of these cars than we think.

Lets see - 513,000 -163,000 = 350,000/10,000 per year = 35 years. Guess I canretire with this motor.
