I'm thinking of taking a long (around 7000 miles) trip sometime in the next
month or two, but I'm not sure if my car (86 4KCSQ, 180K miles) will make it. 
The car has (or will have) lots of recently replaced parts (brakes, exhaust,
struts, wheel bearings, belts, hoses, tires, tune up, AC recharge), and of
course I'd have it thoroughly gone over before I leave, but I'm concerned about
some things (alternator, water pump, radiator).  The timing belt was done at
130K.  I have AAA and a cell phone, and the car runs great, but...

Am I nuts for considering taking this car across the country and back?  Any
opinions/advice would be highly appreciated.
