my 92 olds silhouette had 199,500 miles on it when I traded it in for cash for clunkers.. but the previous owner disconnected the speedometer for a good 50k miles he said so miles wouldn't rack up on it. Yeah it was illegal but I didn't care. engine was perfect too. it burned a little oil but that was it.Wow, everyone was surprised at what high milage my blazer had, but ocomg takes the cake. Not a chance we'd ever get $4500 for either of those vehicles otherwise.
I'm racking my brain trying to think of anyone I know who has a shitbox 5 speed that I could practice on for a day. So far I'm not coming up with anything. I already have plans to have Pops drive it off the lot on Sunday. Embarassing, but not nearly as much as wrecking a new car the same day you get it.
