    I've put about 3,000 miles on it since I bought it about three years ago. With a few more months before winter hits, i'm sure i'll put another 300 or 400 miles on it. So a little over 1,000 miles a year.

    Curious how many miles a year you guys drive your 365/400/412?

    I try to drive mine every day but the distances I commute are short so I hope to put in 7,000 per year.

    Wow- that's a bunch! One of the advantages of living in sunny southern California I guess!

    I bought my car in 2006 with 37,500 miles. It now has 82,000+ miles. That averages about 3200 miles per year. In my first 3 years I was doing 4-6000 miles with a lot of miles from my NJ home to the Finger Lakes; I now live in the Finger lakes so miles have dropped. Most of my miles are done on 3-4 day weekends for FCA and other club events. I won a couple of prizes at FCA events for the person who drove their car the longest distance to get to the event. Last year I did a 1000 mile rally in New England with another 400+ miles to/from the event. In early days electrical issues put me on the side of the road, but with a voltmeter, spare fuses and a jumper wire I always completed the weekend trip as planned. Over years I have resolved most of the electrical issues and reliability is much better than when purchased. The April 2012 Forza magazine has an article about me and my car and distances traveled. The car is a CRUISER, so go cruising! Good luck!

    Hey Ken, could you post a link to the Forza article. I'd love to read it and happy motoring! One of these days I'll drive up to the Finger Lakes and look you up.

    I tired to post the article on this forum before but it is not legible; I have a black and white scan which is pretty good plus a color scan of article and the cover of Forza. PN your email and I will send both along. Post here that you sent PN; I never seem to get PN notices.

    That was 8 years ago and I have done a lot of work on car and a lot of trips since.
