A million if you keep up the maintenance. It comes down to how much you're willing to spend on average per year and how much you like it

I agree as I have one that I purchased New and has 20K miles and have replaced brake calipers , rocker cover gaskets and cruise control and a few other items for about 3K dollars in all these years.

595

I agree with Rob, keep up maintenance and it will last forever. I have seen vette's with 200K miles and more.
