Green Wheels: Keeping Cars, Driving Less
Although my tastes lie elsewhere, our family owns and operates a 1999 Buick Regal with 142,000 miles on it. It has terrible gas mileage, but is otherwise a very durable machine. It tracks straight, doesn't burn oil, and everything works. I wouldn't be surprised if I get another 100,000 miles out of it — it will probably outlive me.
