Miles per year

Hi everyone, I've only put on a few hundred miles each year I have owned my Cutlass but plan to use it much more in the future. That made me wonder how many miles you guys put on your Oldsmobiles each year.

About 2K per year. I always say I'm going to drive it more, but I never do.

I lied- I looked at my records and I've never gone over 1,000 miles a year.

I only put around 300 to 700 miles a year on mine but that should change now. They rocked out roads about 9 years ago and just last year finely re-paved them. I plan to drive them much more now but even then I will not likely drive them more than 2000 miles a year.

Looking at the miles on both rigs, 750 miles per year for each. We have about 7 month window to drive due to the weather conditions.

I don't drive my Olds enough. I doubt I put 750 miles on it in a year.

Less than 3000, I have a limited mileage (3k) classic car insurance, and use 1500 of them going to two big shows.

I put roughly 1000 miles each year on each of my 2 summer rides (Cutlass & Trans Am). This is almost entirely to work and back when it isn't raining and the roads are free of salt.

I'm about 1K per year. Its away from Nov-Dec usually to about March-April. I don't get it out much during the week because I work in NYC so my commute gets me home not that early.

I would guess about 1000 - 2000 per year depending on how many shows/cruises I attend. 95% of my driving is to the shows/cruises which two are at the beach and one in the mountains. I should but currently don't joy ride mine much around town. Maybe once I get the 'vert finished...

Unfortunately we only have a 5 to 6 month window to drive our classic cars.

Same here. I usually garage it for the summer when it's 110+ for months on end.

We've averaged about 1000 miles per year. 68400 when we got it in 2016 and just rolled 70500 when I parked her this October.

I have put a little over 200k on my car since I bought it when I was 17 (back in 1989)I drove it to school in Dayton, Ohio, every week for 2 years. It was my daily driver until I got a 2nd car around 93. Since then, the most I have driven it in a year was probably 6K when the wife and I did Power Tour, and later that and year did Drag Week.
