That is an amazing milestone since some of us are parking and storing them. I only bring mine out of the garage occasionally for car shows and local pleasure drives.
I would never use mine as a daily driver, too much risk from theft, corrosion and accidents.
I might have about 4000 miles in the last 15 years.

You sir are my hero.

What's your work commute like? Take it on long trips also? What part of the country do you live in?

I drive my 86 442 to work almost daily from April through October, but only manage to put around 3k on it annually.

Markg: Congrads on that milestone. Curious original engine and transmission? How many rebuilds or replacements? I retired my car from daily driver in 1996 with approximately 183K miles. Like Upflying, I currently have 187K miles.

Make sure to run a set of winter tires if you're living in a state where their snow.
