Good job! Good car.

My '06 GT 'vert has 75,000 and going strong. My worst thing? several broken spark plugs, that was before installing Champions.

My wife's 1990 Miata has over 175,000. Has had a few issues, but still going strong.

A good car, and good maintenance is what it takes.

There are some serious hounds over at TheMustangSource who are constantly babbling about how tuners like VMP, Brenspeed, Lethal, Evolution, etc don't care about messing up the engine with extreme tunes, and this thread sounds like a good place to point them, to, as well, assuming you've had them for a while. Keep going strong, man!
Had the car for about a year before cai/tune and then kept modding from there

Congrats and you certainly get to enjoy yours. I feel like the second I pull out of the garage the car is filty so I drive it as little as possible. Obviously I have an issue/problem (1300 miles 198 coats of polish/wax in 2 years) but I can think of worse conditions ie drunkard womanizer etc etc. I am sure you will get many more years of trouble free driving as it seems as though you take care of her.

Can we see some pics of the cars? If you take care of the exterior as well as you've taken care of the rest of the car, i'm sure it looks like new haha

Thanks Swat - she's got to last for a while and may as well look decent - for the record the interior still looks good too
