  •  I love your car story. (5+ / 0-)

    I drive a 1997 Mercury Grand Marquis that has nearly 270,000 miles on it. I got it used on 9/9/99, back when I was a road warrior. Since I went back to teaching, I drive less than 10,000 miles a year. I used to drive 30,000+.

    This is the second Grand Marquis I've had. Had the first one from 1994 to 1999. It was a 92. Great cars. They ride great, they have a V-8, and they get 24 mpg on the road and 15 around town. For older cars, they weren't bad.

    If I ever get my kid out of college and put a new roof on the house, I might trade it. Meanwhile, I just keep driving it around.

      270k?!!  Wow!  That's amazing.  I've never put more than 140k or so on a car.  Hopefully this car will last much longer.  My parents have a Marquis and a Crown Victoria, each a number of years old.  They are basically the same car I believe.
