One of my favorite things to do using Autotrader is to go through the listings and find used cars that have basically no miles on them. Obviously anyone can do this with a Ferrari or a Lamborghini, which are usually driven sparingly, but I especially like to see ultra-low-mile "normal" cars. A 2000 Hyundai with 4,100 original miles? Yes, please. Mostly because I like to wonder about the type of people who kept cars like that factory fresh. Here are five examples from Autotrader that illustrate precisely what I'm talking about.

1995 BMW 750iL -- 24,700 Miles

Although it's not uncommon for most V12-powered cars to be preserved with low miles, it's very weird to see this particular car in such a state. This is a 23-year-old BMW 750iL, then the V12-powered flagship luxury sedan of the BMW range -- and it's covered just 24,700 miles from new. It's a one-owner car that was sold new in Houston and registered there for its entire life, and it's now offered by Fall Creek Motor Cars in the Houston area for $15,980.

1994 Chevy C1500 Silverado -- 10,400 Miles

This is probably the most unusual vehicle on this list, largely because most people bought pickups like this as workhorse vehicles to use on their farm or ranch -- especially back in the 1990s, before "luxury trucks" became popular. Nonetheless, this 1994 Chevy Silverado has been preserved remarkably well, covering just 10,400 miles in the last 24 years. It's a one-owner truck that was sold new in Pennsylvania and always registered there, and now it's offered for $14,988 by Martin Auto Gallery in Pittsburgh.

2000 Ford Econoline 350 Club Wagon -- 24,900 Miles

Like the Chevy pickup above, the Ford Econoline van is an odd candidate for preservation since these vans were nearly always bought for use -- in this case, transporting passengers. Despite that, this 2000 Ford E-350 is a full-size, 18-year-old, 15-passenger van that's covered a mere 24,900 miles in its lifetime. It's a one-owner van that was always registered in Florida, and now it's offered by Century Motors in South Florida for just $10,900.

2002 Honda Accord Coupe -- 5,900 Miles

The Honda Accord Coupe from this era was always a handsome car -- but, nonetheless, it wasn't necessarily a car to preserve for future generations. Still, this 2002 Accord has been preserved quite well: It's traveled just 5,900 miles since it was sold new 16 years ago. It's now offered in crazily pristine condition by John Hinderer Honda in Heath, Ohio, east of Columbus, for $12,999 -- big money for a 2002 Accord, but a good deal when you consider that you're basically getting a new car out of it.

2003 Toyota Corolla -- 8,900 Miles

This 2003 Toyota Corolla is a time capsule, as it's traveled just 8,900 miles in 15 years. Like the other cars on this list, it's a one-owner model, and it was sold new in September 2002 -- and then barely driven from there. It's now offered for $9,395 by Choices in Temecula, California, north of San Diego, and it's a perfectly-preserved example of what a Corolla would've looked like if you had bought it new off the showroom floor all those years ago.
