Default How many miles have you driven your Vette in the past year?

I was goofing in the shop this afternoon with my car and found some receipts in the console. I found where I had my oil changed June 10, 2010. I have driven 2198 miles since the last oil change exactly 1 year ago. How many miles have you driven in the past year?

Probably around 10-11k. I've put on 31,000 miles in a little under 3 years of ownership.

Since last June, I've put about 2600 miles on the car, and approximately 800 of those miles was from my trip to Bloomington Gold.

I'm right at 3K miles in the last 10 months of ownership. Trying to limit the mileage to less than 4K per year. It's been very hard 'cause I'm itching to drive it everyday. Best car I've ever owned as far as driving enjoyment and style! Very proud to be able to own a Corvette!

About 3,500 in the past year, sorry to say. We will be driving to the NCCC convention later this month on our first Corvette road trip in the '02 so we should do better in the next twelve months.

My car was a daily driver in Vegas and I put on 30,000 miles in the first 3 years. Since it arrived back in England it comes out when the weathers nice. Last year I only put on 3,000 miles, although 700 miles was in one trip to Scotland. I have about 46k total.

Since buying it May 2010 I've only added about 500 miles. Usually drive F-150 daily but if I feel the urge I hop into the Vette.
