After 100K the odometer is a conversation piece, if that.
Mine, for example, says almost 200K. On the body - lol. The different parts, well, they all have different mileages. At about 100K enough parts break out of the miles reflected on the clock to make it meaningless.
I've driven a lot of cars. Once I worked for a while driving cars bought at auction back to a car dealer. Drove every thing there... Had a few of my own and fixed a ba-zillion of them, in the 70s and 80s.
Friend of mine went with me to pick up the avalon. I drove it back. It had been hit in front - somebody "fixed it" with their ass. It had a rod knocking. I paid $3,000 for it. George thought I'd been sniffing glue...
Next night we were riding in it. George says, why the he77 you buy this thing? A picture's worth a thousand words, said i, smiling. We were doing about 40-45. I whipped it around a 90 degree street corner. George screamed! Your problem, bud, is simple. You don't know what this is. The car did not slide, or even lean.
Now she has her jdm motor and trans. The thing is the epitome of a sleeper. It's flat ready. I've done a few things to it - some i would not care to advertize
- and it will run. It gets 27 in town and 'way up over 30, running the interstates at 75.
It's butt ugly green. It's 14 years old. But step inside and the story changes, real quick. Floats like a Lincoln, stings like a (Super) Bee
and handles in a way that hers, and hers alone. Everything's like, right where it's supposed to be and I have yet to wreck it, while trying to figure out what the doo-dadz doo. Woo Hoo.
Of all the things on my car, the odometer would have to be the most misleading... or at least tied with it's luxury car rep!
