Come join the 300K Klub

After seeing slojoexxx's post, I figures what a cool idea it would be to have a registry of all our cars that have hit 300,000 or more miles.

OK so who has passed this milestone?

Rudolf now has 305,000 on his clock, how about you?

Blue Belle had 320K when I bought her 5 years ago. The odometer quit right after that and best guess is at least ~350K.

Right now, I'm hovering around 387k miles on my 82 300D.

BTW, I formed a group for us high mileage contenders.
