Well, another milestone occurred yesterday. I hit the 50k mileage mark (14k with the Maggie). Thought I'd poast up a couple of pics (bug juice, dust, and all) just because.

Darn car runs perfectly, feels tight, and really scoots. :D Geez, they make cars so well nowadays! Gotta say: Here's to GM! :thumbsup:

I'm ready to go to a 90 mm TB, maybe go to an overdrive crank pulley, and get a new tune as a result, but I hesitate because it runs so well as is and seems so completely reliable.

Was cleaned a couple of weeks ago and now has some dust and bunch of bug guts on the front.

I expected you to pull off the side of the road and get a pic of 50,000!

Guess there's something psychological to me about 50k miles. I mean, it really is some sort of milestone. Below it, the car is still "new." Above it, the car is ... well ... older.

Seems like we have a fairly big spread on mileage on our V1 cars. Hearing guyz who've just bought a car with an odometer reading 8k and some reporting 175k (and more), it's amazing to hear the range.

Thanks, Benjamin.



What do you have, a StarTac phone?My wife is ... well, let's just say she's frugal. We're due for a phone upgrade, and this time around, I'm getting a lot more bells and whistles.

Oh, my phone does indeed have a camera on it ... oh, yeah. Problem is, I can't send it or get it off the phone as far as I know. Sorta like tits on a boar.

Why did I think you had more Maggie miles on her?
I just went over 38K this weekend. The way I drive it'll be a while before I can start a thread like this.

Sure, I want to pummel you. Unfortunately, that will not decide my participation...

Congrats Randy. I always liked the look of your V. Outside the mods are tasteful and classy. Inside...well it's supercharged....need I say more. Here's to 50K more fun.

I just went over 38K this weekend. The way I drive it'll be a while before I can start a thread like this.Put Miss Maggie on at 36k three years ago. Miles are now accumulating much more slowly than my first year when I didn't have a DD. Maybe you'll catch me ... someday.

Kudos to the guyz who came before us and who blazed the trail by trying out and sorting through all the aftermarket choices out there.

Congrats Randy! Funny...I hit 50k two weeks ago myself. As you said, car still feels tight and runs great.

I hope our first meet is not the Dream Cruise...its been too nice lately. We need to organize something soon.

Yeah, Dennis is having a boatload of stuff installed right about now. We'll have to check out his car.

Say, where's Bigron been?

I ran into him on Woodward a few days ago...off road headers with a Corsa exhaust is extremely loud. Didn't realize he was doing more work.

Over on the V2 forums talking trade-in...Yeah, I forgot that that's been his plan for a couple of years now. Hope he can swing it.
