A friend of my family has had an early 70's Buick Riviera for ages. Her trip odometer is stuck on 666.

I had a '86 Park Avenue that I thought of as the browndemoncar. The speedometer didn't always work. Sometimes it was stuck at zero. Sometimes it was fine. Other times it would just go through it's range until the needle was no longer visible. It being stuck in that hiding spot got me out of a ticket one time. But would always start working for inspection. Usually when I was second or third in line at the NJ state inspection stations.
