Thursday’s High Mileage Tuesday

On the morning of Tuesday, 7/10/12, while on my way to Murfreesboro to carry out some work, I pulled over briefly near the entrance to Revolutionist Acres subdivision in sunny Stepford to snap the photograph that appears below.  My longsuffering 1997 Volvo 850 5-speed sedan, Thursday (named for the day of the week I acquired the car), registered 200,000 miles on its odometer.  My previous two cars, a 1985 Volvo 740 GLE and a 1987 Volvo 740 GLE, had 405,000 and 315,000 miles on their respective drive-trains when I parted company with them.
