History
211,000 miles, just about everything still works.

Update: Basil has been retired. It was a good run, but there were too many things needed to get it in top shape (about $6K worth); put it out to pasture and replaced it with a 2004 Disco II, black on black. It still ran like a top, but pretty much all the hoses and lines decided to give up the ghost at once, and the head gasket was the icing on the cake. Still, nearly 220K miles and overall a very dependable rig.
