Mine had a little over 34,000 on it when I bought it back in June '09. When I put it in storage for the winter I was just past 45,500.

I know I know, I see other 06 gto's with 80, 90, 100k +, but I wouldn't mind being in the 30's, or better yet, 20's!! ... Like Erock.

I'm not all that worried about mileage, really. In my experience whats hard on a car are things like age, lack of maintenance, and amateur repairs/butchery more than anything else. On average my oil gets changed every 2,000 miles with either Mobil1 or AMSoil depending on the deal at the time. Once a few months after it comes out of storage in spring and again a couple weeks before it goes back in for the winter. 11,000 miles in three summers isn't a whole lot, IMO... especially when you consider I put on about 21,000 a year on my DD.

As far as "resale" value goes that's probably already shot from what little modification I've already done to the car. Not too worried about that either, to be honest.

Went over 100K just before the new year, Will hit the road for some sales call tomorrow and probably log another 600 miles on her this week.

Bought it in June 2009 w/24K miles and it now has 28.5K. I know that doesn't sound like much driving in roughly 2 years but I have three other vehicles to share the mileage. Four others if you count my wife's car.
