Where Would 800,000 Miles in Your Mustang Take You?

Think about it; 800,000 miles. What’s the most miles you’ve ever accumulated on one vehicle? And where did you go? To college? To work thousands of time? On the cross-country trip of a lifetime?

We happened to have the rare opportunity to be with Carol Marini when she rolled the odometer in her 1968 Mustang over for the eight time. That’s 800,000 miles that she has covered in the car that she affectionately nicknamed the Blue Beast. In the video, she shares how her Mustang landed her free concert tickets, has helped her get through difficult times and has been her means of escape and freedom. In fact, it’s the only car she’s owned over the past 42 years!

Last week, we shared Gary Mueller’s story of more than 1 million miles on his 2002 Ford F-350 Super Duty® (click here to read it if you missed it).

So what’s your Ford story? We want to hear it and give you a place to share it. It’s easy to do in our Your Stories section.

Here are just three of the hundreds of stories that others have already shared:

322,000 Miles And Still Going Strong

322,000 Miles And Still Going Strong

I brought my first NEW car, a lovely green Ford Taurus SEL in July of 2000. 0 miles on it when I bought it and now, 10 years and over 320,000 miles later she is still going strong, original engine, original muffler, (and probably a few other original parts). She’s taken me from New York to Connecticut and back about 2,500 times (along with a few trips to NJ, PA, MA, RI.) Read more…

F-250 With 1/4 Of A Million Miles

F-250 With 1/4 Of A Million Miles

I work at a Ford dealer, just recently a customer traded in this 2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty and the truck has 226,826 miles on it. The truck looks as good as used truck with low miles, and it runs and rides really good. Now this is Ford Build Tough. Read more…

500,000 Miles And Counting

500,000 Miles And Counting

My father bought our Bronco when I was only one year old. We went everywhere in the Bronco for all our family trips. We went from our home in St. Louis, Missouri on numerous trips to Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Washington D.C. and Northern Illinois. By the time I purchased the Bronco from my parents in 2001 it had over 500,000 miles on it. Read more…

Elizabeth Mandeville I have a 1993 Mustang GT that I bought off the showroom floor and I STILL love my car! It has relatively low miles but I keep it moving with regular oil changes using Castrol motor oil only. That 302 V8 is a great engine.

H. Hollmann Whenever a car of mine is reaching 100.000 kilometers (not miles...) I spent a bottle of Champagne and celebrate. That have been done 5 times now. First with a Fiat500 on a German Highway (Autobahn)...

Dave Allred Great story..love those Mustangs..800K is beyond impressive...take care of the car..car will take care of you :). Our 2004 F150 just passed 200000 and is still going strong with no problems. Only 600000 more to go. :)

Bryant Mills Everywhere, like my '69 and '73 Mustangs did. Hope that Ford dealer would give her a paint job to celebrate 800,000 miles. From what I saw, the '68 could use one. What engine/transmission does her car have?

Dan Webb All of my Mustang miles have been enjoyable. A great deal of memorable miles (and kilometers) were made in my commute from Grand Rapids, MI to Burlington, ON while my wife and I were dating. The faithful steed still serves this contract engineer well as it stands the test of endurance here in my part of the Utah desert. (Almost done though, and we'll be headed back East!)

Allen Stephenson My 1998 Mustang GT has approximately 600,000 miles on it. I use it for work and average over 50k a year. It has the stock 4.6 engine and transmission in it. As a matter of fact the ONLY thing I have replaced is drive shaft, clutch, and last month the radiator. I get 27-28 mpg highway miles. So Ford did at least two right!

Carolann Quinn If I had a Mustang, I would take it to school, to work (since I would be able to get a job), weekend trips to the high country (north and east of Phoenix) and a trip to Los Angeles/San Diego in the summer when my daughter is visiting from Moscow. Unfortunately, all of that is a pipe dream as I don't even own a kitty car.
