This YouTuber pulled out all the stops when his Ford F-150 finally turned over 200,000 miles.
Hitting mileage milestones in your personal vehicle is definitely a time for celebration for all car owners. YouTuber ApplesMauce uploaded a video of his Ford F-150 rolling over 200,000 miles as his friend watched riding shotgun and it was definitely the right amount of celebration for the amount of miles rolled over. Check out that video below.
For car guys, the way we remember mileage milestones can be likened to how we remember anniversary dates with our significant others. The only difference between the two is that there isn’t a rolling date counter somewhere conveniently keeping track as the days roll by. Oftentimes 100,000 miles it the first mileage milestone for a car with each subsequent 100,000 miles marked after that. Fanatical new car owners can even go as far as marking the first 1000 miles, 10 thousand miles, 50 thousand miles and so on. It just depends how connected one is to their car.
As for Ford F-150’s, a 200 thousand mile celebration is nothing new. Seeing as how the Ford F-150 has been one of the best-selling vehicles since it was introduced amongst the F-series lineup in 1975, Ford engineers have refined engine and transmission choices down to a science that sees mileage numbers well in excess of 200,000 miles. Search “Million Mile Ford F150” and you’re bound to find a couple of true gems that rolled over seven digits.
It should be noted that this isn’t the first time that a mileage milestone celebration happened this way. Just this past June there was this similar celebration.
And back last year, this fellow celebrated in quite the same way.
