Default 2018 Miles

I'm one year club member in South Florida. Curious to know how many miles did you drive your A this year -- actual but estimated if not known. Do you drive year-round -- when I asked my club members, 1K was the most common -- I wasn't expecting that, what I thought, was such a low figure as
one member said "two oil changes"
Thanks

About 1.200 for me. I can drive year round here in the Pacific Northwest. The manifold heater keeps it toasty inside.

We average about 125 miles per year. Have owned our 1929 Sport Coupe for 40 years, rebuilt speedometer has just under 4,000 miles on it.

This car has only spent one night outside since 1976. Has not been in the rain since 1976, and has only been washed with a hose 6 or 7 times since 1976.

Spoiled?

I spent a little over two months with the engine apart. Other than that I drive year round four or five days a week. Probably 5 thousand miles this year.

I racked up close to 6000 miles on the 160A 4 door, with only a little heating problem and two bad inner tubes.

2017 = 3,327
2018 = 3,232

Not bad since Alaska only has 6,500 miles of roads, and only 66% of those are paved.
