I'm curious to know how many miles we drive each year on our cars.

I did a robust 871 miles last year. Barney, unfortunately, is not eligible for this award. The award is a couple of hearty "atta boys/girls" so I'm sure he won't be too upset.

I only get to drive my 'A on the occasional weekend. Then it is probably about 100 miles over the course of a weekend. But sometimes I have to drive 500 miles to get to where I can drive my MG.

This past year I only was able to get 3000 mi. on my "A". Weather and getting the Magnette sorted kept the milage down.

74.5 GT V8 that I built back in 83 when it had 103,000 miles on her today she has 708,461 on her. I do or use to 25 to 30,000 a year. Have a 73 GT with a 1.8 with Nissan 280ZX 5 speed & A/C & she gets 15 to 20,000 a year. I will not own a SUV Van or Pic up!!! If it does not say Made in England, I wont own it!!!

I'd estimate 15k per year in the various MGs. I don't own anything made after the 60s, and no modern parts shoved in. I'm driving them as they were meant to be driven. smiling smiley

My As are just toys.
I’m lucky if I get a 1000 miles a year between them.
Normal driving in a Civic. When I need a truck it’s the Sequoia, with or without a trailer.
Total mileage combined is under 12,000
My wife’s 09 G37 convertible is barely up to 40,000 at 10 years.

I usually do about 2000 in 2 MGs and a little less in my 04 pickup. The main family car does about 10,000.

I bought my MGA in Oct 2011 and have put 26K on it since then so about 3800 per year. I get between 24 and 32 mpg, probably averaging around 27. The car is a stock MGA 1600.
