Thread: My car's six year anniversary - and 40k miles :)

  1. #1

    My car's six year anniversary - and 40k miles :)

    I purchased my 2006 ZHP convertible 6 years ago on December 6th 2006. It had 2000 miles on and had been turned in after just 4 months of use by a fickle female.

    I've now got 40k on the clock and she's just been a great car. Reliable (just routine maintenance), fun as hell to drive and with a dose of practicality. Fuel mileage is averaging 24 mpg, sow tires are now on and I'm ready for 40k more miles.

    I took these at Lime Rock this past October:

    Ready for 40k more?? You should be ready for 140K more!! You might be one of the lowest mile ZHPs on the board... Nice looking car, congrats.
