I forgot to mention that the TV was in the back of my '67 Rambler American. Thieves probably felt sorry for me.

A blonde tried to sell her old car. She was having a lot of problems selling it,
because the car had 250,000 miles on it. One day, she told her problem to a
brunette she worked with at a salon. The brunette told her, "There is a
possibility to make the car easier to sell, but it's not legal."

"That doesn't matter," replied the blonde, "if I only can sell the car."

"Okay," said the brunette. "Here is the address of a friend of mine. He owns a
car repair shop.Tell him I sent you and he will turn the counter in your car
back to 50,000 miles. Then it should not be a problem to sell your car anymore."

The following weekend, the blonde made the trip to the mechanic.
About one month after that, the brunette asked the blonde, "Did you sell your car?"

"No," replied the blonde, "why should I? It only has 50,000 miles on it."

I don't care about cd player. In fact I'll keep the stock one in the car. If it comes with a aftermarket one I'll trade someone for a stock one.

You'd be lucky to find a car come stock with no tach but with a cd player,

You'll know when you hit the limiter, mishift, toss a rod, and crash.

I bought my 1992 civic vx with 204,000 miles on it and kind of wondered how bad of shape it was in, so I did a compression test on the engine and it was perfect, I figured if they used cheaped oil, or skiped oil changes, or drove really really hard, or anything else that would be bad for the car, then it would have low compression, but it was prefect so I bought the car, then I changed the timing belt and water pump.
after all, what are you most worried about being worn out? I say any adult driven honda with less then 250,000 miles on it is worth looking at, at 300,000 the suspention bushings are wearing out, the doo hinges are wearing out, and people have done some funky things to them.
