Bonus points for the most OEM components?

I'm not sure I want to own up to all of the normal maintenance milestones I blew past to this point.  Plugs, timing belt, water pump, and radiator are all stock and probably living on borrowed time.  Changing (fresh from 2005) brake fluid, trans/diff oil, power steering fluids this weekend. 

I didn't do the accessory belts until three weeks ago when they were squeaking like it was raining rats.  The wear they were showing were a bit of a wake up call that I had been putting all this (mostly easy and affordable) stuff off for too long.  Once I have all of the fluids and plugs done, I'm taking the Aero down to a local garage that works on my friend's Mustang to get the timing belt and water pump done.  Will probably leave the radiator alone for now - never had any problems with it that I can tell.

Haha now that's bad! Your car must be longing for a little love.

Yeah, I feel bad for the little fella.  I pretty much drove it like a minivan for my commute the first five years after I moved away from the office.  It wasn't until I found this site that I started appreciating what a gem the car is and can be.  I'm lucky to this point that I haven't driven it into the ground and have been trying to prepare for its next 125,000 miles instead of its last 10,000.
