The '88 Ranger ('84 was on that top 10 list) left a few years earlier under its own power with over 200K miles.



I'm still taking heat for selling the '95 Integra (5 speed!) back in the day with over 220K. It had 3 repaints due to people running into it in D.C. every few years.



The daughters had 3 Cavaliers (also on the top 10 list) between them. The first had been passed along by an aunt, was driven by both daughters and went on to a number of cousins before it was sold out of the family. The second was totaled after it was stolen by an idiot ex-boyfriend and the third was just sold to make room. Broke my heart.
