Well, my trusty old ’93 Nissan just rolled over 190,000 miles yesterday on my way to work. Unfortunately I didn’t pay attention and missed seeing all those delicious 9’s roll over to the satisfying 0’s – but it’s a fun milestone anyway. There’s a big part of me that wants to get this car to 200k, which might happen next year or so if I do a bit more driving than usual.
I must admit that I’ve been ‘seeing other people’ and test driving a lot of different cars (Audi, Lexus, Nissan, BMW, Toyota’s, Subaru, etc) . Problem is that none of them have really taken my fancy yet; and the idea of plunking down 10-30k on a car isn’t really high on my list of things to do. So, I keep driving the Nissan. That and having no car payment for the last 7 years has been sickeningly sweet.
