    Who has the lowest mileage

    So, since there is a high mileage thread, I figured I'd start a lowest mileage thread. Post up what your lowest chassis mileage is. Let's see some low ones!!!

    I've got a 95 3000GT with 12,986 miles.

    I used to be able to go down the street to this guy named Josh. He was a member on 3si a while back, he had 3 3s sitting at his house at one point. Anyway, it was a 92 Stealth RT/TT with 2,675 miles on it. He sold it a couple years, maybe 3 years ago for, I want to say, $27,000. It was holding the records at the time for the LOWEST millage 3S in the world, and probably still does, whomever has it now. Edit: His username on 3si was ILuv92StealthTT

    BUT, even the dash vents on that car were cracked, so I never felt bad about my own being cracked. I had discovered that they were cracked, and I have never seen a man so disappointed in his life when I pointed it out.

    The first time I saw this car, he had brought it out to our first 3S meet here in Lubbock that I had put together when I was 17. I felt so privileged to have gotten that car out of the garage for people to see it.

    Fun fact: It is actually his DD RT/TT that I had first driven a TT 3s. It was also promptly after that that I had sold my NA and got my VR-4. I blame it all on him.

    his for-sale thread on 3si http://www.3si.org/forum/f10/2-500-o...-turbo-372659/

    Edit: Did a little more research as to me being curious about it. He sold it to a dealer in Ohio for ~$22,000 on eBay. The dealer sold it for $33,900. Here are the pictures they had before selling the car.

    I've seen a Jamaican blue vr4 in NJ that had 800ish miles on it. I heard a story about it that a guy had some construction work done on his house and he couldn't afford to pay the contractor, so he gave him the car.

    I believe Gary Cooper's spyder vr4 also has 800ish miles on it and he's the original owner.

    There was also a red stealth TT in PA that was for sale recently with 2900 miles on it. I believe they were asking $29,000.

    There's a guy local to us here in PA, according to his son's fiance (an acquaintance of mine), had 3 VR4's, all under 1000 miles. She showed me some pictures on her phone, none of the odometers though, so, who knows. He had an enormous car collection, all low mileage, high end cars... pretty sick.
    Circa 2005... Oh my, how far I've come

    ouch. Our 12k mile 3000GT had been sitting under a tree with a tarp over it for 12 years, and surprisingly enough, the dash vents weren't cracked. LOL

    I believe he had over 15k miles on it when we did the 60k service to it. We haven't heard from him in a long time.
