So, how old is your car? Or cars, as the case may be. Ours:
- '71 Alfa Romeo Spider: 51 "people years" old.
- '88 Alfa Romeo Milano: 27
- '01 Chrysler PT Cruiser: 77
Not too shabby!

225K/1977 = ~113 years old
My 2006 Subaru is 21 years 5 months.
While amusing, I'm not sure it's close to accurate. Of course, I'm not sure it's supposed to be accurate, but in the interest of being a complete geek, I'm thinking that miles over years of service is more important, with some modifier for years in general (because even sitting there ages a car - think of the seals, rubber/plastic parts, corrosion in general, etc.).
And yes, now I've completely over-thought an amusing simple concept. Without even having a single drink!
