A thousand miles and other markers Empty A thousand miles and other markers

Post by knightfan26917 Mon Dec 14, 2009 4:04 am

For the first time since I've had all 4 older Monte Carlos (1972, 1976, 1979 and 1981), I drove EACH of them at least 1,000 miles in 2009. I came close to that milestone in 2008, but fell just shy. Now, all 5 of my Monte Carlos are "sleeping" for the 2009-2010 winter ... awaiting their 2010 debut.


1972 MC STATS:

11/28/08 mileage ... 144,986
11/22/09 mileage ... 146,054
miles driven 11/28/08 to 11/22/09 = 1,068

In 2009, "Browny"'s odometer surpassed the 145,000 and 146,000 mileage markers.

miles driven 12/11/04 to 11/19/05 = 563

1976 MC STATS:

11/28/08 mileage ... 60,140
11/22/09 mileage ... 61,215
miles driven 11/28/08 to 11/22/09 = 1,075

In 2009, "Elvira"'s odometer surpassed the 61,000 mileage marker.

miles driven 12/11/04 to 11/19/05 = 624

11/28/08 mileage ... 143,261
11/22/09 mileage ... 144,333

In 2009, "Sweet Pea"'s odometer surpassed the 144,000 mileage marker.

In 2009, "Sweet Tea"'s odometer surpassed the 192,000 and 192,500 mileage markers.

I know ... I saw and replied to your post about that. I'm sorry that happened; I can imagine how I'd feel if that happened to any of my MCs..... Course, sometimes, I do have nightmares about something similar happening.....

If you need anything, you have my cell# ... call me. I'll be in Chicago today (Tuesday) for my 6-month checkup at the cardiologist office, complete with a damn "stress echo"...which has me VERY unnerved right now. But, call me if you want. You can vent to me, if you like.

And, if you haven't already, you might check out these pages for the El Camino:
