With that many miles, it has to be Mostly highway miles, which means she'll see 200k with minimal maintenance, jmo.

When I worked, in Florida, for FPL [Florida Power and Light], doing contract mapping work, I put 7,000 miles in 28 days, on a rental Chevy Malibu, which I have to say, except for the brakes, handled it wonderfully. The rental car agency was a little miffed when I brought it back though :) If you have ever heard Abu, from the Simpsons? That's who called to yell at me about how they had to sell the car and "We will never rent to you again!" It is really hard to take someone, with that accent, seriously.

Rental guy: "We will burn down your 7-11 and suicide bomb your neighborhood!"

Me: "Hee hee, that accent is so cute!"

BTW, mapping the location of power poles, on a huge, badly folded, plotted map, with no street names, only transit lines and occasional transformer locations... sucks a$$. Many's a time I drove down a road that turned out not to go anywhere. Drive back. Drive around. Suspicious neighbors wondering what the hell this guy is doing outside their trailer, with binoculars and writing something down. It semed they were mostly worried that I would rat them out and they would lose their disability checks or something.

I would have felt terrible doing that to a Mustang!

I think it has many miles to go, I drove my brother in laws van last week (Econoline don't know what engine) and it has 240K miles on it, still going strong. I think Ford engines are better than ever.

No problems far. And by the way, that's 40,000 hard miles. I don't baby my Stang and my Stang don't want to be babied.

It has grown some annoying rattles but that's it so far.

The 3.90s just went in today. A Christmas gift from my lovely wife. Also put in a CDC Agresssive chin spoiler. Looks great!, even better after I paint it this weekend.
