Well, 42 miles is a different story.  That's like trying to keep it museum 
quality, and I would expect one like that to be higher (although I'd have a 
hard time justifying $40k like they're asking!).  The other car at 15,000 
miles in 22 years is a we-used-it-to-go-to-church-on-sunday kind of number.

Or is it?  Let's see...

That comes out to 681-ish miles per year.

Let's say they only drove it May through September.

That'd be 5 months a year, so that'd be 136-ish miles per month.

That's about 34 miles a week during driving season.

That'd be almost 5 miles a day.  Or, assuming it's on weekends only, it'd 
be 2 round trips of 8.5 miles in each direction.

Almost the same as only-to-church on Sunday.  I can't imagine having a B 
and only driving it that amount.  But I guess it's conceivable someone did.

But for the 42 mile car, that's pretty much 
buy-it-and-keep-it-as-an-investment.  Worth $40k though?  Not to me, but 
maybe to someone.
