faithful vehicle turns 300,000

Turned over 300,000 miles, that is. DH’s 1990 Suburban has finally made it to the 300s.

the old Suburban

DH and DD drove it around the block a few times to catch the rollover. And no, they weren’t going 67 mph while taking the picture…the speedometer is stuck there. 😀



The Suburban has been a great vehicle for us. It took four kids back and forth to school every day, 30 miles each way. It made it through four teenagers and various bumps and scrapes. It has hauled family, friends, boards and lumber, plumbing, plants, moving boxes, furniture, landscaping supplies, etc., etc., etc. And now it has turned over 300,000 miles. Maybe, like John Denver, we should get out and push it a mile.

    Clark will be happy to hear that! His Suburban has 280,000 and he is adamant he will make it that far too! His is a 1994 … far more beat up than yours … it has been hauling all his tools and stuff all these years.

    They just don’t make them like this anymore, do they? My dad used to have a 1965 Buick Wildcat that made it this far, too!

    Congratulations! I don’t think I have ever known a vehicle to hit 300,000! We have ridden in this faithful workhorse a few times. I remember when you first got it.
