100,000 MILES and Counting, Who Else?

I was returning from PCola to Jax Sunday night and noted that I was about to eclipse the 100K mile mark so I prepped the camera...I have no idea why I did that.....anyway, as the 100K mile approached I figured I should be at 100 mph when the 100K mile hit....so I was and I took a pic at 100000 miles and a pinch over 100 mph.

How many others have put over 100,000 miles on their Corvettes since they bought em?

Re: 100,000 MILES and Counting, Who Else?

I don't have the mileage you do yet but I did want to congratulate you on it!

Taking a photo at 100 mph at 100,000 miles is an interesting way to celebrate.

Enjoy

JB

I haven't hit 100k yet, but I'll be there within the next couple of years. Unique way to celebrate.

Hey JB! How is a brother? Yea, I couldnt think of any other way to celebrate...it was dark and I was on a highway.....I guess I could have tapped the 150 mark but it was pretty dark!

Re: 100,000 MILES and Counting, Who Else?

Sounds like fun..

I'm at 63 thousand miles and enjoying this car like no other.

This year I'm rolling this Z as my daily driver..

Certainly a great way to fly...(but then you know that already)
