As you see, lots o' big numbers...I was impressed...for the math impaired, the highest number was from a 1967 1800 with 623,322 kilometers (386,459 miles) belonging to Phil Patzer. Nearly 400,000 miles. To get an idea of that distance, that's nearly to the moon and back. That's a LOOONG way. There are numerous cars above 100,000, and not a few above 200,000. Plus, the number above 300,000 isn't as low as one might think.

Anyway...that ends that exercise in mindless information gathering...stay tuned...I'll think of something else...
