How Old is Your Car in People Years?

Does the passing of another year make you feel old? Well look on the bright side, it’s nothing compared to how your dog feels! But what about man’s other best friend, the automobile? Here’s an amusing and easy math problem to calculate how old your car would be if it was a person, courtesy of Blue Donut. Just take take your car’s mileage and divide it by its model year.

That makes our JNC wagon (a 1986 Cressida with about 109,000 miles) 55 years old. Don’t feel bad, wagon. 55 is the new 30! How old is your car?

    My E-van is 93 years old, my 300 is 35 years old (disagreed highly there), my Impala is 20 years old (!), my Dodge 600 is 25 years old (also !!!), and the wagon is a stunning 863.8 years old. Roflzors.

    Yeah, I guess the whole thing kinda breaks down if you have a low mileage oldie. Our 1971 Crown has only 23,000 miles, so it’s only 11? LOL.

    No way! My Civic can’t be 114 already!

    I didn’t even think it had passed puberty!
