My Car Rolls over 200,000 Miles

My car recently rolled past the 200,000 mile mark. Anyone knows me well knows that I love my car. It’s the only brand new car that I’ve ever purchased and I’ve had it for a very, very long time. To be honest, I’m actually surprised that I didn’t reach the 200,000 mile mark a lot sooner.

Here are a few photos from the day of the big event (via my iPhone).

Here’s a brief video clip of the odometer actually rolling from 199,999 miles to 200,000. Rest assured that I took the video and images while driving through a huge empty parking lot and not while driving down the interstate.
