Inspired by Bill's tag line...
Goal: to da MOON! (221,753 miles at perigee.)
When you have reached this goal, feel free to post your model and your favourite moon phase

New Moon

Banana Moon

Cheshire Cat Moon

Pizza Moon

(Clarifier - the Moon Trip has to be made in a single car, because we all know you can't change cars in space, especially if you've forgotten your space helmet)

1996 855T. leather is fine, turbo is good. Replaced trans at 180K. Also replaced windshield, all front end components, mounts, rotors, fluids, reservoir, heater core, hoses, seals, belts. White ext. Grey int. 280K miles. I'm on my way back.
Life is like a box of chocol- make that an engine compartment. You never know where all the hoses go. Unless you read the diagram on the hood. When all else fails, follow the instructions. Do it right the 2nd time.
Be good do good feel good live good.

1998 S70 T5M. 263k miles. I guess I'm going to da moon and back. Driver's seat in ruins. Original windshield. New delta links and shocks at 240k. Cooling system refreshed including heater core at 250k. New calipers on front. Brake line refresh. Many parts still from factory. The view on the way back is better.

2000 V70XC @ 270,000 miles. Been coast-to-coast several times and up to Alaska and back. Dad bought it new in 2000 and I got it in 2008, so I've legit grown up in this car and it's been with me through the ups and downs of life ever since. I've done almost all the maintenance on it since getting it, thanks to these forums. Unfortunately, it's currently sitting disabled in my garage with stripped threads for the TB tensioner (I had a **** weekend). Love this car to death though, so I'm getting it taken care of next week with the pros.

You are in orbit and preparing to deploy the lunar lander.
It looks like about March 2019 for me.
