Jewelry Pro Drives 1 Million Km, Finally Gets a New Car

Published

The car is not sentimental for him — it’s just a tool for work.

Plenty of people in the jewelry business go the extra mile for their profession. But Bruce Audley of Beverly Hills Jewellers Mfg. is a special case.

He recently traded in his 1999 Acura TL, which had clocked 1 million kilometers, CTV reports.
The high odometer reading is because of his work as a traveling sales agent. Audley says he put all the kilometers on the car driving around Alberta, Canada.

That’s a lot of drive time — about a year-and-a-half in total. The car still has its original engine. But it’s on its fourth timing belt and third transmission, and it has some dents and rust.

Audley, 66, says the car is not sentimental for him — it’s just a tool for work.

West Side Acura in Edmonton celebrated the trade-in with an on-site event, according to Acura Connected, an independent blog. He got a new Acura RLX.

The dealership threw in four snow tires for Audley’s new ride, according to CTV. Interestingly, the odometer never actually hit 1,000,000. It went to 999,999 and stopped — an outcome that Audley described as “anticlimactic.”

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
