quote:My Dad had an old Plymouth station wagon from the mid 60's. Push button automatic and from riding in it as a kid i remember NO rear seat-belts! Dad drove it to well past 150K miles commuting back and forth to work from Dallas to Greenville, and sold it to our next door neighbor. The neighbors daughter used it to commute to and from college from Dallas to Denton (45 miles one way) for two years. She then gave it back to her Dad and he used it for several more years in his cabinet business as more of a "work-hauling" car. He sold it after that. I dont know how many miles it had on it, but i'm sure well over 250K. Granted most of it highway miles, but still, not bad for a car of that generation. Dad used pennzoil 10w40 and changed it at 3K-5K miles.
