Actual mileage?

How concerned would you be if you found out the mileage on your El Camino was wrong, or at least was more than you thought it was? I just ran a CarFax on the car I think I'm going to buy, and it says it may have as much as 290,000 miles on it...but it could be that there was a clerical error early on, and the indicated mileage is a lot closer to correct.

What do you think?

You really should prep them a little before throwing in a battery and turning the key after 10 years. At least pull the plugs squirt a little oil or PB blaster in each cylinder and let it sit a day or two. Then try turning the engine by hand and see if it's free. Then change the oil, and pull the distributor and use an engine primer on a drill on the oil pump shaft to lube everything.
