300,000

My 84 300TD now surpasses 300k miles! Hopefully I can keep it on the road for another 300k.

vstech, I find out today if we landed a big job here. If the project is a go, I won't have time until Christmas. If, we did not get it, I should be able to do it soon. I'll be in touch.

Nice. You will be sending for the 500K kilometer badge within a year, most likely.

I just hit 320K in my 84 a few days ago. The numbers on my odometer are not as nicely lined up as yours. Mine slant in one direction and I assume it is because the gears that turn more frequently are more worn. My numbers are also not as bright and clean as yours. I would like to take out the unit and clean them. Maybe this winter.

cool. I'm torn as to which way to root for ya... get the job, and you've got money, but no time... don't get the job and you've got time but no money...
I'll just root for you to have the best luck possible!
just wait until you have some cars over the 400K mark! it's lofty up here! I've got one customer with over 500K!!!
