So Jonas, wasn't that race between your lean green machine and the 307 this weekend or not? I haven't been on the board a lot lately, so I may have missed it. I'm dying to know how it turned out!

due to weather conditions, and not having the car in the condition I wanted, I took my Town Car on the 1,000 mile journey instead of the Caddy. No race.... HT4100 did a burnout tho.

Jeez, that's a long drive for you Rick. I never thought going from GA to FL could possibly be that long. Wow.

370 miles miles each way, then I put around 160 miles on the car while down there... all give or take.

Town Car has 2 trip odometers, so I fill up before I leave, reset both trip odometers, A I keep to see how many miles I've put the whole trip, B is perf ill up for fuel mileage calculation.... this last trip was 950 miles.

I'm tellin ya, that car sits all week under the car port, sometimes for 2 weeks if I don't really go anywhere while I stay home.... then when I go to FL... it slams the miles on. It's cool tho, cause that highway driving at 70mph is nothing on the car.... it'll accumulate alot of miles while still being in great shape.

I've already put 8,000 miles on the car, since April 4th.... in comparison, looking at the record of the last oil change on the Isuzu, back in March, it was only 2,500 miles ago... heh... I use that thing every day, but going to work and driving in town just dosn't add up as fast.

I wanted to take a little video of it... my friend and I were driving to FL...

I saw it and told myself, in 20 miles I need to get the camera.

Next time I looked at the odo it said 100,000.9 :(

Ah damn dude, that kinda sucks. When I hit 100k in the deVille, I didn't have a cell phone or a camera yet, but my buddy had a camera phone, and he was riding with me, so I snagged his c/p real quick, took a picture and pixmsg'd it to my number about 4 months later when I got my cell phone.
