Turned over 230,000 this week. I bought it with 199,000 on it 3 years ago. Daily driver( yes daily as in all year, all seasons) 87 GTR. Hey the sounds good. GTR was a typo but sounds good. LOL Fred in Muskegon has an 88 GT with over 320,000 or 350,000. I dont recall which. Nice looking car.

I ordered my '84 SE 4 speed in Sep '83, rec'd it in May '84 and it has been continuously registered, insured and used since. It's a daily driver except in wet, salty conditions and as of tonight has 371,934 kilometers or 231,109 miles on it.
I saw a Fiero last summer that was sold before I got there - it had over 600,000 kilometers (372,800 miles) on the odometer. I wouldn't have bought it anyway; I thought there was a typo in the ad & it had 60,000 km. Lol!
I just got an 87 GT that reads 264,000 miles... You'd never know it.. Orig nearly flawless medium-red metallic paint, runs perfect. Pulls straight and strong.
It's so heartwarming to find one every once in a while that has been so well cared for. My initial thought was to part it out, but I simply cannot! Going to do a few little things to it and put the 'ol girl back in circulation!

Daily driven 86GT auto is at I think 203K. Engine and trans are both still great, but the suspension is shot and it feels a little erratic at highway speeds. I bought it at 172K. It's kind of funny because back in the 90s I looked at a similar car (86 auto V6) with exactly those same miles - 172K - and walked away because I thought the miles were too high. I thought it was going to be all kinds of trouble. ~14 years later I look at this 86GT with the same exact mileage, and of course by then it didn't make me flinch. Back in the 90s I ended up getting an 84SE instead. The higher mileage car I have now is in better condition than that 84 ever was. I'm kind of curious about the ownership history of my 86, because the previous owner definitely wasn't treating it as anything other than a junk car. I think most of the miles must have come from somebody before them who took better care of it.
A littler of 124K on my 86, but other than my wife's car, its actually the lowest mileage of every car I own, LOL. Figuring the standard 12K per year, it should have 360K on it. Sitting in a field in Kansas for 10 years probably helped on that.
