Doesn't have to be original engine or any thing else but THE BODY! Just mention what you have replaced over the years that you know of to make it to the 200,000 mile marker... BTW.... I'm in too. But the engine... well.... its only a 3000 mile beast so far.
Do you guys think this should be made a sticky?

BTW... Mak... what do you think Kelly Blue is on your car with all those miles?
"Past mechanical limits" MY ASS!!!!
I haven't really seen a lot of other foreign or domestic cars like our supras with tons of miles on them that run as well as our cars do....
My buddie's Mk2 had 200,000+ miles on the ORIGINAL ENGINE this summer, still running strong beating the local rice.... two days after that it was totaled by a chick putting on lipstick running a red light.

If I had not messed with my boost pressure, I'd still be running on a stock re-tourqed HG at 20psi all the time.
About 170k on the odom.
Stock seats are still excellent, but I run sheepskin seat covers over them, so they never wear out.
Stock carpet is good, but the stock floor mat for the driver has holes where the heals of my shoes rest. (Need new mats, but they quit making them at Toyota, and I have not found a set I like yet in the A/M.)
My old MK2 was all original, and running great at 190k+ when I traded it in for the Mk3. (Should have kept that car, and dropped at 7mgte into it. Had newer struts/shocks, bushings and a custom exhaust and intake. Amsoil filter with 3" pipe back no cat from the stock cast header to a 3" low restriction muffler.) Figured it was putting out over 180hp at the wheels, maybe better. Never had that car on the dyno, but it would run 80's Camaro's into the ground.

282 thousand miles on mine. Engine replaced at around 100 K, due to a BHG and since there was no such thing as the internet to help out back then, I had no idea why it crapped out. :)

My '87 had 216,xxx miles when I bought it. I had to replace the TPS and the battery cables but ran strong. I'm in the middle of redoing a bunch of stuff on her now.
