finally blew up

Just an update guys, my 02 focus finally blew up. It died at 332599 miles. I believe a rod or piston broke. I can turn the crank with a breaker bar, but it locks up, then you spin it the other way and about 90 degrees and locks up again.
Still has stock air filter(did blow it out a couple times with air compressor).
Stock fuel filter.
Cleaned maf sensor 1 time.
Replaced Battery 1 time.
Never flushed Automatic tranny fluid.
Replaced shocks/struts and front springs with used ones off here.
Replaced timing belt ONE time.
Replaced alternator with one from junk yard
Replaced stock plugs at 203k miles
Replaced next plugs at 300k, but found out it was bad plug wires, not the plugs.
Replaced front wheel bearings twice, both sides at same time.
Original exhaust and this is a winter driven michigan car.
Dont think I ever replaced rear brakes/drums.
Replaced front rotors/pads as needed, but more pads then rotors. I NEVER had rotors turned, just put new pads on.
I NEVER let the car warm up in any weather, just put it in gear and go.
Drivers door handle broke, swapped it with rear door handle.
Passenger side rear window assembly broke, lifted window and wired it shut.
AC developed a small leak somewhere, oh well.
Heater resistor went twice, only fixed it the first time.
Replaced drivers side head light assembly, as the bulb came loose and melted bucket.
Replaced head light bulbs several times, rear bulb once or twice, one front parking bulb.
Replaced bushings in dogbone rear control arms.

Car was getting 32mpg mainly (high way). Went to start it in the morning and clunk and locked up.

Basically I did no preventative maintanance and this car lasted all this time.

My 02 ZX3 rolled 100k about a month and a half ago. Kind of bummed that I forgot it was about to happen. Wanted to shoot video of it as it hit that number. Oh well.

'01 2.0 spi rolled over 100k about a month and a half ago. up at 105k now. got it when it had 98.5k on it, and drive 60 miles round trip a day for work. seems to run well, but it has had its problems, and it doesnt run without some rattles, clicks, and clunks on a regular basis. cant complain though.

122k here. 05' 2.0 Duratec. Basic maintenance, alternator RH driveshaft replaced. The rear main started leaking thanks to the stupid PVC valve.
