WRX: 100,000 Miles of Fun

Monday, August 13th, 2007 · 2 Comments

The summer of 2007 is flying by, as summers always do. I’ve had a 3-week blogging hiatus and keep meaning to catch up on all the excitement of our action-packed, non-stop summer fun — we’ve already been to the track 7 times, celebrated many a happy hours, seen a few movies, and more. As with most things, though, once you fall out of the routine, it’s hard to get back in.

One noteworthy event is that yesterday en route to an annual Vassar gathering in Albany, the WRX passed the 100,000-mile mark! Maybe I’m cheesy like that, but I was excited about the moment and captured it on digital film. It’s the first car I’ve had for so many miles. From being my daily commuter between San Francisco to Marin County, to our cross-country adventure, to being Jen’s Saratoga to Clifton Park commuter, the Subaru’s been with us for a long time and always treated us right. She still runs like she’s brand new (proof that regular maintenance goes a long way).

It took 5 years, 3 months, and 8 days (from May 4, 2002) to hit the 100,000-mile mark:


I drove the Scoob off the lot brand new with 11 miles on the odometer:


Though it wasn’t until I got across the Bay to Emeryville that I thought to take the inaugural odometer shot:


And then came the Day 1 photo shoot in Emeryville:



And here’s the 100,011-mile moment, marking the 100,000 mile we put on the Scoob:

    Congrats on the big MILEstone! You’ve obviously grown more comfortable with the car since mile 21.0. Back then, you were very careful to park the car and open the door(s) (and/or trunk) before taking a photo of the dashboard. Nowadays, you’re able to pull this move off with all doors closed and while traveling at speeds of 72 mph. Well done!

    Good point, Tom! And thank you. Though it occurred to me after your comment that it would’ve been more fun to capture the 100,000-mile moment while driving 100 mph. 🙂
