"Every single car that comes through my hands gets the treatment," the father said. "They all have their mileage cut to under under ten thou before they're offered for sale. And to think I invented that all by myself," he added proudly. "It's made me a mint."

This is typo, isn't it?

    Old edition maybe.
    We see many people in foreign countries with "unauthorized" editions. If you have a legal copy of the book, you should know how old it is from the page at the front of the book. I sort of doubt that even the original 1988 printing has that sort of mistake in it.
