    Just wondering how many miles you guys/gals put on your rides per year. Last couple of years I've been between 1,500 to 2k. This is in the Great Lakes region so it's only on the salt free roads for about 6 months. Just rolled the odo over this year so I have a low mileage car again. :cool:

    Be well,

    I'm in the northeast, so I know your pain. About 3,500 - 4,000 per year. Too many toys. Or so the wife says. NOT.

    About 1.5 - 3k/year... Really depends on what work's being done... Live in So Cal... no snow, but sometimes its just too darn hot out...

    3 miles in 3 years! But it's getting closer to roadworthy.

    With a fuel-injected vehicle over the last three years, not much, but when I was DD'ing Babe, I was averaging 1500/month, when it rained or I missed the bus. Now, I'm getting ready to sell the S#!tbox (need money for doctor bills), and she'll be my DD again, but I certainly won't be more than 2-300/month.

    I have put about 3,000 over the last three years. None this year so far, still waiting for parts to come back.

    I've got 1,700 since restoration. So, that's like 300-400 a year. In Michigan it couldn't be driven in winter because of salt. In Virginia it can't be driven in the summer because it's too hot. Finicky thing.

    I would say about 400-500 a year, depends on the weather - I really only drive it when it's warm and dry and I'm not in a hurry.

    Mine is a daily driver when it isn't broken, which it usually is. I haven't driven it since I broke the axle back in early June. Hopefully I will be in the 10K + a year category once the thing stops breaking down. I have to solve the overheating at 70+ mph thing once I finish the 9" swap.

    All those excuses out there, I have only put about 1500 on it since I got it running 2 years ago. :(

    I’ve put about 28,000 miles on my ‘65 in the five years I’ve owned it. But it spent 9 months at the paint shop...

    It’s a daily driver and when I finish the 289 / T5z swap it will get driven even more.

    Right at 4,000 miles since I’ve owned it since 2006. Comes out to 287 miles a year. No wonder my wife gives me some looks when insurance and registration come due!

    Around 300 a year, mostly to Home Depot or the local nursery for mulch and plants, stays garaged all the time
