I only have 23,400 miles original. Today I took a pic of that on my dash, so I hope Sal will get it up. I am curious if I have the lowest mileage 12 year old or newer Caddy here? My dad just never drives his cars much, you should have seen his Olds 442 w-30!! :cheers:

No garage queen for me. If you're gonna have a nice car, DRIVE IT!!
Guys that have cars as "trophies" and "investments" make me sick :vomit:
Cars are made to be DRIVEN, not just looked at :thumbsup:

right now she is loosing a quart of oil every 5-10 miles cus i forgot to use teflon tape on one of the lines... oops.

Uhmmm, Ralph, please elaborate, I am confused.
Well, if you are serious about me elaborating, lets see, what will be worth more in the future? A low mileage (cared for) car, or a high mileage "well used" vehicle??? I would tend to say original, and or well cared for. Plus, something that has not or will not be driven too much in the future, that already has low mileage, has a better chance of being preserved for future generations to enjoy. Not too many teenagers today would know what an LS6 Chevelle SS is unless they read about it, if all of them were abused and wrecked. (or possibly restored.) IMO :burn:

Whoever said that if you DRIVE it, you have to be ABUSING it.
I just think it's a waste to just garage a car and only drive it once in awhile. IMHO, the guy that has a Porsche in the garage but drives a Toyota everyday is an idiot.

Especially cars like porches..... The ones that are in bad condition are the ones that werent driven....... The ones that are driven a lot are the ones that are nice, and the ones that run the best..... Sure, you dont NEED to run it every day, but you still want to use it.......

Besides, if you dont drive your nice car, people wont know that you have it!!!!

A quality car is like a beautiful woman. Yeah, they're great to look at, and to be seen with, but in the end if that's all you think they're good for, you're a shallow human being with no appreciation for something truely wonderful.

Nice analogy!

I completely agree....... you dont spend almost 100k on a car and not use it..... Its not only unappreciative, but its retarted...... You got it, use it!!!!
