    OK, another one for fun and out of curiosity, then I'll lay low for a while, pollwise, I promise!

    Did a search and it looks like there was no such poll so far, amazingly enough...

    So, what's the mileage on your 80(s)?

    You may vote more than once if you have more than one 80, but do it all at the same time, you won't be able to come back and add a vote...



    lessee, from 91 to 2005, call that 15 years. Is 12K still the avg per year? I'd think we do more, but OK. That'd be 180K.
    At 15K per year, we'd have 225K on the high side on average.
    So, shouldn't be too many with more than 250K.

    Of course, thanks to another poll, we know that we have more 97s than anything else, so that will likely skew the avg to the low side...

    Bought mine a year ago at 150k, now I'm at 162. I'm shooting for another 200k and then I might have to rebuild the engine. Pretty good for an 11yr old car.

    would gladden the heart of any statistician...


    have a look at the poll on HG blowups.
    Similar max incidence. More on that later!

    ooh, the tire / speedo issue....! another can of worms!

    but that's only about 13% for a 35" though, so yes, 20K off...
