2002 sold to Clemster with 237K...
R. - she's now in my hands, after I totaled mine a couple of weeks ago (2000, 148K miles, was running strong but an oil burner).
The car runs fantastic and the engine is incredibly devoid of valvetrain or other noise once warmed up - I imagine it will run better once I replace the stuck-open thermostat!
I had Adam swap all of the new flywheel/clutch/shifter-bits/driveshaft (new guibo and CV in installed) and my seats and door panels into your old beast before I got it from him last week.
She's an incredibly strong and nice running and handling car for 237K miles!
Thanks for taking such good care of her!

Back story: I wrecked my 2000 because I was on Mich PSS tires , it was a bit chilly, and I had DSC OFF. Car got loose on acceleration onto the highway and felt like it was on ice after that. Spun past and around a Prius I was following, going across his bow backwards, he drove by me on my passenger side just before I hit the guardrail with the driver's side of the car, going backwards. Probably going 30mph max.
Lesson learned - if you're on summer Ultra performance tires and it's below 60, just leave the DSC ON!!! Stupid move that resulted in a car that still ran great and drove fine, just a totaled body.
Adam is parting her out now.
