I hope i am not breaking anyones bubble but if you choose to remove the speedometer you can change the mileage on these cars to anything you desire it to be by just adjusting some of its internal parts and changing the numbers
That can lead to a lot of misconduct and cause you to by a car that is not correctly represented by its mileage
Just a heads up to study other aspects of the car to see if the mileage feels right for the wear and tear you may be looking at on a given car
Break peddle wear for example etc ( unless the brake peddle was replaced --LOL )
Pick a number an that can be the current mileage you show on the dash ---Surprised ??
I bet some of you just might be
Many of our cars have been around the clock once and when reading 35,000 miles is really 135,000 miles
In the years these cars were built the life expectancy of a car was about 125,000 miles give or take a few thousand
Not like todays cars that go 250,000 to 300,000 miles due to the advent of CNC machining years later
Thought a few might find this as a possible eye opener

Want your car to be newer than it is like MAGIC !

For the NY Siciliann Crime Families thats just horsing around
Love that Movie as i have been in a lot of the sceens in that movie in my own lifetime
You can add my second favorite movie Goodfellows to the list
My uncle " Larry the Lover " ( they all have nick names ) was the guy in the movie Goodfellows played by Ray Liotta for all practical purposes
It could have been writen about his life and who he was
All my life i have grown up being related to these bad boys and then the Godfather movie came out to introduce the world to them
Many of them have passed away now but the movie has made there life style immortal forever on film
We still can make you an offer you cannot refuse !

Enjoy

Comment by Kevin Campbell on November 5, 2017 at 3:18pm

Hey Jason, the paint deal sounds almost too good to be true.

How much extra if the cans are full though.

Comment by Jason Edge on November 5, 2017 at 3:02pm

Hey, I might not have NOS speedo head units but I can set them up at Zero Miles for those that JUST NEED TO START OVER!   I've also got a few cans of Ford Blue I swear looks just like Cadillac Blue... $10 a can... buy 10 cans and I'll knock $5 off. And no one will ever know .... wink, wink!

I know it close to Holloween but that was a --very sinister laugh --after the 1 million dollar odometer note
When you said you were calling me out for the photo of the convertible top motor i was not sure if we would be street fighting or having a car discussion
Truly sorry i was not in a position to be more helpful with that information but glad it got done
My knee has been acting up making it difficult to walk for the moment which was a part of my problem Being helpful
