I finally joined the 200,000 mile club! On the original motor too! All Ive had done is a new clutch and the regular tune up things. It makes me feel good to have a car, any car for that matter, hold up to the beating of daily driving and cruises.


Who else can join me in my bragging of how good G.M. was?!

Photo seemed appropriate!

That's my '84SE in the middle - ordered in Sep1983, rec'd 08May1984 - been continuously licensed since.
363,285 kilometers (225,735 miles) on the odometer. New engine under recall for cracked blocks in '87 @ 102,000 km.
Original clutch (can't be much left...), original exhaust (excluding cat), no alterations - only repairs - usually with Fiero parts (like '87 sail panels). My '88 Formula has only 24,385 km (15,152 miles) & '86 coupe 120,043 km (74,591 miles) - lots of life left!

I have a 1988 Mera with about 225,000 miles on it but it has most certainly seen some work on it.

Congrats.

I hope to make it to 300,000 on my GT and I'm really close but not so sure it's going to happen.

That's nice but were all 200K were driven by you? That I think would be more significant.

Why is that more significant? Isn't the thread about the cars' longevity?

(My 225,255 mile '84 SE is almost all driven by me, but the engine was replaced at 63,000 miles under warranty.)

Actually the thread was supposed to be about an original motor and car with over 200k. Oh well.

Way to go Anthony. That shows someone who has done the required upkeep to get the best out of their car. No matter what kind of car 200,000 is a "Job Well Done" in my book

We may have to change the name of your Fiero from Agent Orange to Timex.

Just means you have enjoyed the ride longer. Nice to see 2.8s holding long but that is nothing new. Those motors if maintained will last a lot. But we know of all the population very few have been pampered.

Pampered? I dont think so. My car is a daily driver and has been for years. It gets housbrand oil and filters. I drove it from Texas to Mosourri to Indy to the 30th anniversary. And then through Tennesse and back to Texas. Not to mention the 5 or 6 cruises we do a year that are a few hundred miles each. Pampered you say? Yeah. Sure.

He means pampered in that normal maintenance was performed. Or that it was not driven a thousand miles with the check engine light on or after the temp gauge is pegged.

on a GM 80s engine 200,000 is very exceptional. Today I would be disappointed if my engine didn't last that long.

I guess i just dont consider regular maintenence as being pampered. I agree that the mileage is awesome for any gm from that era. All this was supposed to be was a thread for those people who have reached this milestone on an original motor. Didnt matter who drove it or how long they drove it. Just the fact that the motor lasted that long.

My 86 2m4 with 5 speed had 245k on it when I sold it.
It had rust, and we found a low mile no rust car.

Maybe not...but the average person drives a car until it needs all the maintenance parts replaced and then gets rid of it.

Is there a 300k club? Granted, I put in the 3800 at 299,600, but the duke was running happily til then.
I dug all the snow off my car to start it for a bit and stir the oil / charge the battery.


Then, much to my dismay, it snowed again today.
