Wow! How about that? I just logged on here to see if HWS had posted his mileage recently. I probably haven't been on in a year or more and was just thinking about high mileage MINIs when I thought i should check this thread out.
Congratulations! may you have another half-million!! I'd better get driving if I'm going to beat you to 1 MILLION! I'll have to drive about 1600 miles per week just to tie you!

Well, it took 10 years and three weeks,
but my MINI just passed 1/2 Million Miles today!
I'd never put that many miles on any car before,
and never intended to put that many on this one.
But, it just kept going and going, -
so reliably and so enjoyably -
that I've never considered parting with it.
It was especially pretty and shiney 4 days ago as it
drove proudly with 9 other MINIs in a Parade
through The Wisconsin State Fair. But today,
when I saw that 5 and all those zeros,
I just had to take her picture - as she was -
with dust, rain streaks and all.
So, what's ahead for this 10 year old car,
her 86 year old owner, and his Bride of 9 months? No! - It wasn't that kind of Wedding!
We'll just keep Thankfully Trusting.
God's always been very good to us -
and He's not done yet!
