I have a 1991 Camry with no less than 478,000 miles. The body is very
rough (teenage drivers) but it still goes down the road just fine.

Still driving a 1977 Toyota pick up truck on occasion.
Runs just fine - extremely well actually.
'spose it should, have replaced just about everything, but parts were
reasonable

IIRC I found a remanufactured head and camshaft for around $140 and
installed them by using photocopies from a reference book at the
library.
An invisible water hose under the air filter housing ruptured and I
thought that might be the end of it, but it keeps on going - passes
California smog testing, too.

That's almost 100 miles everyday for 15 years.
Are you sure?

I bought the car with 358,000 miles on it, from a retiring lady.
She drove a delivery route for a next day photo service 6 days a week.
She area was most of western Iowa, I am not sure of the actual miles
per day but, I can easily say it was more than 200 miles a day.

I concede defeat.

1985 Corolla GTS, 258,000
1988 Supra, 180,000
Had an '83 Tercel, 4WD wagon, 210,000 but sent it to the shredder...

I've got the oldest! At least the oldest US version. A 1983.

But only have 240,000 miles on it.
