Up and down Straight with totally random tripometer.

Still.....I would say, although I could be wrong, that is definitely my highest tripometer display, and possibly the highest milage tripometer display ever posted on the French Car Forum.

Now 1605.4 or 16054 if you like would appear to be a totally random number.......but is it? Does it have any other significant random associations?

Strange fact number 286.........
The 16053/Chennai Central - Tirupati Express has averages speed of 43 km/hr and covers 147 km in 3h 25m. The 16054/Tirupati - Chennai Central Express has averages speed of 40 km/hr and covers 147 km in 3h 40m.
Must be uphill on the way back :-k

The best I can do with that tripometer, and it would have been perfect if the jetwash had been 176 yards closer when you took the picture, is this

Here's the mileage on my new bargain basement car car. Maybe a 053350 coming up. But for now

053240

Now what random thing can be attributed to that particular number :?: Suggestions welcome.

Bit of a "do fish swim?" question, but do you know your hexadecimal Steve?

231132 in hexadecimal converts to RGB 35,17,50 which is represented by your unique "significant mileage" colour.

Should anyone wish to translate their own significant mileages to colours this does it

Bit of enhancement required due to out of focus photography...

55555 came up today on the bargain basement Micra, at Stannington on the A1 about 9.00pm with Wilson Phillips and their excellent "Hold On" playing on the Radio.

Superb song in my opinion
