myth ... modern odometers only clock in one direction whether in forward or reverse gears! Very old cars might be different, but they'd need to be very early cars!

It worked in the 70's. A mate and I used to drive his sister's Datsun 1600 backwards to remove the miles we had just put on thrashing the car around the farm.

Wasn't that the whole reason Datsun was created? To supply paddock bashing warriors?

It worked on some of the analog speedos.  :D

I doubt the new digital ones would work.
