Last year we bought a '96 Toyota Camry with a V6, with 246k on it. Could use rear struts and a valve adjustment (little noisy) but the thing still runs like a raped ape and we drive it daily to keep the mileage off the nice cars. Only paid a few hundred bucks for it too.

Got a 1991 Nissan Sentra 4dr 3spd auto for free with 18x,xxx on the odo. It was a nice addition to our all-truck garage. Except one of us didn't understand FWD driving dynamics and crashed it into a traffic pole making a left turn.

I bought a 03 PT Crusier frown when I was like 20 that had 98k. Worst car I've ever had. Exactly at 100k the head gasket blew. Radiator cracked. Fan broke. Water pump fouled out. Just a piece of [censored]. That soured me on all Chrysler products even to this day. Only bright spot with that POS was when a drunk driver crashed into it parked in front of my house Christmas night. Got a claim check for like 7k. Bought my first muscle car (96 Mustang GT) and never looked back.

I bought this truck many years ago with over 320,000 miles on it. I sold it with over 400,000 miles. I did swap in a 283 V8 while I owned it. Along with body work and paint.

A few years ago, I picked up a 2000 Civic HX for $2700 with 142k miles. Its now got 215k or more and probably salable for over $2000 in a weekend on CL.

I bought an '88 Grand Marquis with 250k on it for $400, replaced the intake gasket as it leaked about a quart every 4-500 miles. Sold it for scrap after a few months (rust everywhere) and bought a very unreliable '84 Thunderbird Turbo Coupe that I ended up scrapping as well.
