You read that right, a little over 29,000 miles. Near perfect, garage kept. This car belonged to my mother. I don't have much time at the moment so I will complete this ad and add more photos later today. Here'sa quick rundown.
This car was driven to the grocery store, the beauty parlor and church. If it was raining, they used my fathers truck. It has been driven on an interstate less than 20 times, to visit her mother in Jackson Mississippi. Quoting my mother - "Once you get on the damn interstate, they won't let you off!". (We never were told who "they" were.)
My mother passed away in 2003. My father drove the car to church once a week after that but only if it was not raining. The last time this vehicle was driven was in 2012. I backed out of the driveway, supervised by my father, and drove away. When I returned, I got my butt chewed out for driving the car uphill. According to my father, the correct procedure was to back out in the other direction and drive down the gently sloping road opposite the driveway. I am serious.
When this car was purchased, Hoover Toyota inBirmingham gave the buyer free oil changes every three months or three thousand miles, which ever came first. At the end of the first three monthsmy fathertook the car to the dealer for a free oil change. The service managerinformed him that since the car only had 400 miles on it, an oil change was not necessary. My father told him that since three months had elapsed, he qualified for an oil change. The service manager relented and the oil changes were performed every three months for the next five years at intervals of 300-600 miles.
You will not find another one like this one. I can guarantee it and I havethe paper work to prove it.
More later, thanks for reading.
