Old Seabisquit has been with me a long time, and carried me and the cats Mr. Austin and Mr. Beaucastel from New England to Oregon. This 1993 Impreza LS Wagon still has the original engine and transmission at 431,000+ miles. I use Amsoil 0W-30 Synthetic engine oil, ATF and gear lube. Amsoil P.I. gasoline additive helps keep the injectors clean and things running smoothly. I do as much maintenance as I can myself. I change my own oil, filters, plugs and wires, and do small repairs, leaving the bigger jobs to those with proper tools and knowledge.
Old Seabisquit has outlasted three of Rick’s minivans. The mileage on Rick’s old Mercury Villager that he drove out to Oregon in was around 320,000 when it was struck by someone running a red light. I’m hoping Seabisquit makes it to the 500,000 mile mark.
