I can't drive 55, but 55,555 has happened.

I can’t drive 55, but 55,555 has happened.

The Phaeton’s systems need quite a bit of work before 55 MPH is a regularly achievable speed…. but who cares.  In most situations, cruising around at the 45 to 50 MPH range is just fine.   It is probably a meaningless achievement since the odometer didn’t work when I purchased the car; however, today the odometer reached 55,555.  I thought that occasion merited a post.  The achievement was made while leaving Autozone where I was picking up some armorall, rainex, and wax so the car shines on its up-and-coming road trip to Ithaca NY.
