Yep. Title should be based on miles/km driven in a stick, not post count. But then people would be tempted to lie :|
I like that suggestion! Or how about years driven? Grey hairs ought to count for something around here.

Driving 60 miles to and from school puts some miles on your car, let me tell you!

I just did a back of envelope calculation and I figure I have probably driven something like 250,000 km in an MT (as well as over 100,000 KM in a slushie). It makes me feel old just thinking about it.

And then I realize that for someone who has been driving in North America since 1973, that is quite a low number.

I've had my permit for about 10 months, and I figure I've driven probably around 800 miles. Lots of highway driving. I drove part of the way down to houston and back. I hate highway driving in a truck, its challenging, especially when it's windy.

Yeah, I'm thinking it could be similar to a manufacturer's warranty , which basically uses the 20,000 km/year formula. We could have titles for 0 km, 20,000 km, 40,000 km etc. Of course, we'd have to have the ability to update our personal figures. I just don't know if this would be a feasible/practical system on this site.
