    Original Owner?.. Whats your Mileage?

    Well since I have started to get a bit more active on here I thought I would ask the question..

    How many original owners are still active here and Whats your mileage.?

    I have an 01 Dragon Green, I bought new in July of 02.. it has 38,xxx miles on it. (Semi Driver.. coast to coast.. so it spends alot of time in the driveway).

    just curious..

    I am not the original owner, but bought my 2000 dragon from the original owner in south florida in 2006. It had 38,000 miles and I have only put about 1,900 on it since then. Total miles now on the VX are 39,900.
    I drive my 1999 Amigo most of the time and the VX to show off.

    Can't say that I'm an original owner, I think I will go through life always getting used cars.
    Regardless, I'm a second owner and now have 92k on mine. I bought it for driving and taking care of, so I'm not bashful about the mileage.

    I bought our 01 Proton from the original owner last year with about 34K showing. It now has about 40K showing ('course the odo is off by 10% due to running 33's).

    I'm the third owner of my '01. Purchased it in 2003.

    1st owner lived in Flordia. He put approx. 15,000 miles on the VX.
    2ND owner flew to Florida from Texas. Drove it back to Texas. He was an older dude who didn't like tilting his head to get in and out. He put 3,000 miles on it.
    3rd owner is me. I've put over 70,000 miles on it.

    This will be my 4th ZuZu in Moab this year.

    Peace.

    I'm an original owner for over eight years. It's been my daily driver the whole way so I have 167,000+ miles behind the wheel of a VX. I'm still having 100% pure fun and I hope my VX is still my daily driver eight years from now.

    In less than a year we could see someone proudly proclaim themselves as the first ten year VX original owner in North America. Who will it be?

    I'm the Original Owner of #0467, I bought it Brand New back in 9/02 from M'Lady Isuzu, Crystal Lake, IL. I think there were only 7 New ones left in the country at the time. I had it shipped 2000 miles to the West Coast. I can remember two weeks after I got it was my first Vehicross Meet (LA meet 11/02).
    Found some pics of the meet on Naoki's site.

    A few years before I got the VX I was commuting 120 miles a day to work and back. After 3 years I said enough of that and moved to a smaller house only 7 miles from work. That's why my VX only has 25K on it.
