In Search of Odometric Evidence

The Puzzler

RAY: He showed him the odometer. The odometer said it had something like 100,014.2 miles. Then he showed him the trip odometer, and it had the same last three digits, 14.2. The only way that could happen is if he was looking at the odometer, and pressed the trip odometer and reset it right then and there.

So who's our winner?

TOM: Our winner this week is Terry Hanson from Overland Park, Kansas. And for having her answer selected at random from all the correct answers that we got, Terry is going to get a 26-dollar gift certificate to the Shameless Commerce Division at, with which she can get our brand-new CD called, Once Upon a Car Fire, The Greatest Stories Ever Told.
