1998 2.8 - driven back home from Denver to Vancouver.
1400 or so miles in a little under one day.
V1 - No tickets (but blasting past an unmarked crown vic in Oregon at 150 Kmh was scary)

Picked the car up from DIA parking lot, drove to pick up by belongings (IT consultant finishing long gig). Hit I25 north at Midnight. Arrived in Portland 23 hours later with a sore arse & sore right foot ( should have plumped for the sports seats i reckon). Rested for a day before the final few hours up I5 to meet the lovely Canada customs chaps.
Shite i love this car. After two years I am still excited.


1. rev limiter in 5th hits in just above 200 k/mh ( at this point, the front of the car feels like a slight bump in the road will flip it over - a bit scary)
2. Driving lights shatter easily (both out in this trip)
2. sleeping in the car from 3Am to 7Am in Wyoming as all the gas stations were closed is not much fun.

3. Load the car with goodies to improve the bass of the H/K stereo. Would you believe i crammed into the car;

Full size suitcase, PC laptop, jackets, suits, rollerblades, small backpack (trunk)

Large carry on size bag, laptop & bag, camera stuff (roof well)

Large backback, suitbag, skis, boots, poles, ski gear, TV, VCR, backpack. Assorted shoeboxes of crap (footwell, passenger seat, behind seats, etc)

I now have 29,000 klicks on the car - about 17,000 miles in two years. Inspection 1 light just on
