Illustration for article titled High Mileage Challenge Results - Previous Cars

Well, if you missed it, I posted the results of current cars yesterday. Today, we'll go through the previously owned cars.

Once again...let's start with the random statistics:

Average age: 21 years

Average mileage: 276,000

Oldest Car: RamblinRover S. McFisticuff with an awesome 1981 VW Rabbit Pick-up

Top Manufacturers: Volvo (7), Honda (4), and a 4-way tie for third with Ford, Dodge, Mercedes, and Ponticac (2).

Top Models: Accord & Caravan at 2 a piece. (Who says Chrysler transmissions are terrible? Well, you did because you told me how many transmissions it took to get your minivans to that mileage.)

Well, you successfully embarrassed me. I thought I was a high-mileage champ with my 200k cars, but I didn't even take the top ten for previous cars and just barely got 9th for current cars. However, I it looks like I'm doing something right as 3/4 of my driveway is filled up with 2 Honda Accords and a Volvo 945 turbo.

This time around 15 of you had cars over 300k, which is an impressive 42% of the list. The Japanese barely squeak by as the leader with 11 cars followed by America (10), Sweden (8), Germany (6), and Italy with one lone Alfa Romeo.

And the winner is...(drumroll, please)...

505Turbeaux with a 631,000 mile 1984 Mercedes-Benz 300TD! Congrats!

That's right ladies and gentlemen, the winner for both current cars and previous cars is a 1980s diesel Mercedes. I think I'm seeing a trend here. Since it's the same car as yesterday's winner, I can use the same random picture I pulled off the internet!
