Hey Futurer Vetter: If you want to see a bunch of Vettes that have really been driven, check out this MidAmerican Design High Mileage website. I'm in there with 158,000 now on my '88 red coupe.

Wow that's living proof that if you take care of you're Corvette it can last for ever, and they should be driven not stored away.
I will buy my Corvette to be driven, It's more fun to drive them than look at them anyway.

In my research I have dicovered that the C-5 is the Corvette to have. I bet I can get 300,000 out of a C-5, hmmmmm that's alot of driving and waving.

Let's have some fun with this


238,000/18 (average MPG) = 13,222.23 x 1.50 (average price for gas (stress on high test) = $19,833.35!


Wow, that car has gone through nearly $20,000 in the tank and out the pipes!:hb


I bet you guys never though of it that way before!

159,000 on my 82, with 75,000 on new motor. Taking care of this motor, so expect to reach 300,000 on body. Let's see, 20K miles a year, 8 - 10 years before retirement - yup, will make it.

I have an 86 Coupe 4+3 - with 402,000 miles on car - motor untouched, OD rebuilt at 375,000 - just normal maintenance - shocks, brakes, belts, hoses and wheel bearings

Alternator and water pump have been changed and starter rebuilt.

So mostly what I consider an original car with just normal repairs :)
