    It is what the title says 462977 miles

    This is one hell of a nice car for being put through the paces. IMG_0430.JPG

    It's has to be a typo but it is a Mopar so, 1/2 million miles is no problem!
    The title should only have 5 digits for miles and an "M" for "exceeds the mechanical limits".

    I have to submit a database error to records management to get it corrected. The car has 49,727.8. So when it had 46,297.3- as in 3 tenths of a mile, about 12 years ago, someone fat fingered it. BAM- 1/2 million miles, just like that. Thankfully, when I went back to DMV today, the girl behind the counter was in my kindergarten class. She listened to me explain what I believed to be a entry error and she looked it up and gave me the instruction to get it fixed. I think I scared her a little with the "I went to school with you". Funny thing is she and I were in Kindergarten when this 77 was new.

    Young pup, I started kindergarten fall of '69. I feel old now:(

    Not sure how the DMV stuff is in New Jersey. Here in Wisconsin any car older than 10 years is exempt from odometer disclosure. When a car over 10 years old changes ownership, the new title would just say "EXEMPT" in the odometer spot.

    That exempt thing is in Pennsylvania too and that made it a little confusing to the NJ DMV. I ain't as young as I once was. As my wife says, I'm 45 going on 90 ( and she is 47 going on 29- gets mistaken for our daughter's older sister)

    I wonder what the highest mileage is that anyone here has put on an F,M, or J? I had a Volare wagon that I think was in the neighborhood of 150 - 160k once. Still ran good, but rust killed it.

    I lost track of how many times my odo reset to zero kms. I'm pretty sure it has about 550,000 kms.
    It's on it's second powertrain. A 77 Aspen donated it in 1994. I am third owner.
    I think the rear end is actually it's third. The driver's seat fell apart about 10 years ago. She's got some GrandPrix seats in her now.
    Second set of bumpers too; and these are rusted out now as well.
    Good news tho, the original rad is still in her,allbeit with multiple patches. One day the top tank started to come off,what a mess. Just a 7psi cap too.
    She's been thru quite a few sets of brake pads too. And lots and lots of tires. But she always gets the cast offs from my other units.
