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.
