I celebrate making the last car payment, receiving the title, and soon to celebrate passing 100,000 miles.

Yea I celebrate every 5,000 miles by giving the car an oil change, usually new tires for the 50,000 mile mark appropriate 'presents' at other mile points

I took a picture of my odometer when my 91 Wrangler hit 100,000.0 last summer.

Every car I've purchased (that has had a cassette / CD player) upon first drive (on highway) I play Carl Otto Nicolai's Merry Wives of Windsor Overture (and let the cars pile up behind me, if they wish) and then play Flatt and Scruggs, Foggy Mountain Breakdown (and end up with a speeding ticket- ) - its the 'audio' equivalent of putting the car through its figurative paces.

Upon various mileage milestones I do the following:
At any five digit all the same odometer reading (11,111; 22,222 etc...) I let out a big whoop like I won a jackpot lottery, at each 10,000 I let out a hoo-ra, and for the few cars I've had at the 100,000 mile mark I celebrate with an animated singing of music medley, a la, Chris Farley and David Spade


Tommy Boy Eres Tu - YouTube

Then, the last songs before I sell, or trade in, I listen to Liszt's Mephisto Waltz followed by George Thorogood and the Destroyers, Bad To The Bone, in honor of Stephen King's Christine


Tribute to Christine Bad to the Bone - YouTube

All my past vehicles have mysteriously come back to life!
