When is your car considered an old car?
When you take it to the mechanic, spend a decent percentage of the Cambodian GDP on getting it fixed and drive away stil hearing all the usual creaks, squeaks and screeech’s.
And no, the mechanic didn’t do a bad job.
It’s just that to get more of the noises quitened, you have to shell out more of the money. At some point it’s a comparision between just living with it vs. being the not-so-rich and living with the quitest car.
