Cars age differently than humans, giving us a skewed perception of car age. But now there's a formula to tell us how old your car is in people-years. The website Blue Donut put together this interesting formula for determining age:
There's a simple formula for calculating this (a formula I invented). Take the mileage on the car's odometer and divide by the model year. The result is your car's age if it were a person.
Example: a 1994 Chevrolet Cavalier with 131,824 miles on it. Do the math:
131824/1994 = 66.1.
That car would be a 66 year old person.
