Both of my current daily driven 5ktq's are well over 200k with broken odometers.
My white one shows 172,000 as it has since the late 90's where the service records start (I've had it for about 5 years). I obviously can't state the current mileage with any certainty, but my "280+" should be a conservative figure given that I know it never sat unused and I've taken quite a few trips in it where it's had 800 mile days. I wouldn't be surprised if it was really closer to 350,000.
My black cars odometer is at 190k, again since the 90's. I've had this one since 2003. It's had a few instances where its been down for long periods during engine builds, but has been my preferred daily driver and for the last 8 years. That's meant at least 50 miles per day so, including down time, that should be at least 80k which would put that car in the 300k range too when you factor in 3 years of less daily mileage and a few cross country trips.
If I ever fix the odometers I'll probably set each to 300k as a good restarting point. There really aren't any cars made that I would like to daily drive more than my 5000's that I could afford so I intend to keep upgrading them and maybe I can get the pair to a combined 1,000,000 miles some day. The white car needs A/C, euro lights, and new seats to keep Leah happy driving it though ;-).
