Grace turned twelve today.

I took her out for a short while (it's been unusually cold for the last few days in the Philadelphia area) but we did get a chance to "drive her in anger" when it was significantly warmer last weekend.

At 43,674 miles, she's still the car that makes me smile the most.

so this is what happens... you get three Vette's and a couple of winter beaters... leaving all three Vette's with low mileage and in perfect condition.

Anyone want a beat up 92 with 204k miles?

I don't know, Andy — the 2012 is sitting at 36,400 and change: not quite an everyday driver, but darned close. That's 870 or so miles a month and Louis definitely signs of being driven. Lauren is somewhere over 76k — definitely not low miles. I won't argue about Grace ...

Happy Birthday, Grace! I still get a hankering for one of those whenever I see one - I remember drooling over a new one on the showroom floor.

I suspect Louis needs a good detailing after the cross country drive.

I was hoping that with GM upping the appearance of quality in the interior would also up the durability of the interior...

I would say 76k on an 85 is, by definition, low miles. That's about 2500 a year for 30 years!!!

Louis is close to normal, really. 10k a year is good.

And Grace is is also at about 2500 a year.

My 92 is at about 10k a year.
