How many miles did it have on it when you bought it?

It is a film clip! Play it. You'll see.

I bought the car at 81,262. First roll over was shortly thereafter on the L.I.E. I think.

This is not the Free Speech forum, but sorry, I just have to say it.

That is fucking amazing.

When my Asstro turned 300,000 kms, I stopped and took a picture by the roadside. What a candyass! I should be taken out behind the woodshed by Colin.

Nice job, btw, on videoing the turnover. We all get to be there. =D>

I must add, there's just something so cool about the speedometer needle of a Bus when it's hovering around 70mph, with that little flat four whirring in happy contentment.....

By the way, I'm glad your Bus chose the great state of OHIO to mark its historic milestone!
