yeah I guess thats right when you do the math...

Its been so long since I drove those kind of miles I forgot how much it really was.

if it had 200K less on it it would be worthy of consideration...I like how it looks...but I am not one to buy a car with those sort of miles.

That driver's seat looks way too new to have been sitting in it for 140 miles a day for 10 years straight. Must have replaced it...
