Smile 999,999 Mile Lexus ES300

Came across this photo on Instagram, pretty awesome!!

I wonder if the drivetrain is all original. I've left a comment on the picture, I'll update once a response is posted.

Toyota FTW!!

Highly doubting original transmission, it did only look like a 200,000 mile car. Hard to say if it was original motor, they could have done it at half a million or 700k and look the way it did. I didn't get a chance to speak with the owner

where the hell can you drive to have 999k miles? that's insane

I'm assuming that's a '97.. A 16 year old car.. You would figure that a normal car is driven about 12,000 per year.

Average miles driven on this car is about 62,500 a year,
5,208 miles a month,
1302 miles a week,
186 miles a day.

You would need to drive around the border of the united states 75 times to accumulate that much mileage. That's also about 17 timing belts lol.

Hey what's cool about that is once it passes 999999, i'll be a new car again with 0 miles haha.

That a crap load of driving.
