OK, who ever told you to park it at night with the tires lifted and a brick on the pedal needs to be shot ...

Holy cow !!! what do you do that requires that much driving? And you obviously live in that car right?

X2!!!!!

That averages out to about 493 miles per day. At 70mph that comes to about 7 hours a day interstate driving for ALL 365 days last year.......(I believe my math is right)

Please do tell, so I can be sure to take that job category off my list of possible future careers.

Is it possible to set the odo to Kilometers without an indicator on the dash? If not, that is some serious driving. Near impossible. You'd be changing the oil every 2-3 weeks!
