I alternate days between my 87 F250 and my Jeep. When we go play out in the desert or sand dunes we load the F250 up and go. Drove the F250 to the grand canyon on our honeymoon.

Some on here beat mine a bit, but I still drive my old '94 530i every day. It used to be my daughter's daily driver through undergraduate and graduate school away from home, it never stranded her even in -30F weather in northern Wisconsin.

'95 Olds Cutlass Ciera
Picked it up from an auction then unexpectedly pressed into being a long distance commuter, 106 miles round trip daily for a year and a half so far. Gets good gas mileage, comfortable ride and easy to repair.

I don't drive any one of my trucks every day, but I'll drive any of them on any given day. All three get driven at least a couple times a week with the 94 Explorer and "newer" 02 Ranger seeing the most use.

I believe I am the 4th owner of the Explorer, which has 251K on it. I am the 5th or 6th owner of the 94 Ranger with 201K, and the second owner of the 02 Ranger with 232K. All three can start up and drive wherever right now. The older trucks are better looking, not perfect but well above average for age, the beat to heck 02 makes a great Birmingham beater.

Headliner is falling apart. Also needs front end suspension rebuilt, every 100,000 mile a fuel pump, and brakes are spongy, but typical gmt400 issues. Transmission and engine are original. It is probably the best vehicle I will ever own.
My current DD is a 97 GMC K2500LD with a 5.0, the brakes are indeed spongy and the headliner is toast.

I've been driving my 2002 Mazda Protege5 since new and now it has about 250k.


You get what you pay for...
So keep in mind how much you paid for this advice.

1990 Miata, 234,000 miles, 12-13 miles each way five days per week. I'm probably the sixth owner, maybe seventh. It is mechanically sound, could use some paint.

His will be hard to beat. My F-150 doesn't count since it almost never moves.

cdm1993: The headliner falling down is GM's traditional automatic reminder that it's time to retire a vehicle. wink

My '81 Mazda (listed below) is no more, but it made uneventful trips from South Carolina to Little Rock (~1400 miles round-trip) and to western Kentucky as recently as summer of 2014, and ones to Florida, Michigan, NYC, Louisiana, Indiana, and Mississippi, since 2008.
