That 97 sable is pretty unbelievable. I actually got mine from my parents who took it to the mercury dealer for everything and I continued servicing it at the specific intervals with motorcraft oil. And the thing had bad mains after 190k miles so kudos for the miles man! But my parents had to replace the transmission in that free from Mercury due to a "known" defective part and it was slow and horrible gas mileage when we owned it. Had the 3.0 vulcan.

Mine had the 3.0 but I'm not sure if it were the Vulcan or not, next time I see my buddy which I haven't in a really long time but outta nowhere every few years run into ill take a pic of the mileage and post it up, my wifes 02 with pretty much the same motor has 201k right now and still runs great, she babies the thing though and has the last prolly 30-40k plus my sister who is younger then us and drives like a grandma gave it too us and put about 20-30k on it nothing wrong with a free car lol but Yeah I never had too many problems with mine was a great car

Not going to list 200+ vehicles but here are highlights of the more fun ones:

8 different V8 S10's
93 GMC Typhoon
9 different V8 F bodies (nearly stock to turbo and supercharged with full suspension to go around curves)
BMW V8 wagon with 6 speed
BMW 740i's and 740iL's (still have 2)
Multiple 300ZX single and one twin turbo
Probably 100 or so Honda Civics, CRX's, and Acura Integras from bone stock to turbo or JRSC charged with handling suspension
6.0 swapped Avalanche with full bolt ons and cam (procharged for short period of time)
Lots more but either can't remember or not worth mentioning...
