Rudolf has made it to a milestone!

The 1986 300SDL has made it to a milestone - literally!

Check out the odometer readings!

I had to get off I-287 and find a parking place to take the shot...

Good timing to catch that. I missed a good one on my 81 240... 123123!
I was getting close and just spaced it and missed

I was planning this for weeks...

Congrats!! That is an awesome shot. I sold my 123 I had close to that number when it had 332k on it. I was really hoping to keep it for another two months.

A few months ago our Freightliner truck at work read 33,333.3 miles. I thought it was neat, but neither my coworker or boss cared.

They just DON'T GET IT!

Congrats on getting so many miles on Rudolph

I've never kept a Mercedes that long. I kept my Rabbit Diesel for 340k miles. It was an impressive car too.

I planned the same kind of pic when my Plymouth Acclaim hit 222,222 but I think I forgot to set the trip odometer. Nice touch!

Nope! Careful planning 222.2 miles prior to the event.....

OH, and I was referring to LUBMBDiesels as having me beat!
