Default Inconsistent CGT Clutch life

Is it rare for a cgt to still have plenty of original clutch life remaining after 10kmi? Does it tell me it's been in the hands of a good driver?

Why do some clutches get replaced on garage queens sub-1kmi and now I find one that has full clutch remaining after 10kmi?

It just means that the owner hasn't been a complete idiot wrt to following the very simple instructions on how to use it. Or perhaps for some of the low mileage cars had to have clutch replacements it was clutch contamination from a leaking rear main seal or similar to be fair. .

Loading a CGT for transport can glaze a clutch - so those 1k model CGT's are what they are.

Got my car 5 years ago with 29 mm on the clutch. Still the same at last service. 14k miles. Just gotta trust the 1st gear "autoroll".

Had a trailer with a winch - drove it to the dealer when I picked up the CGT out of town.

Salesman laughed said I have been driving CGT's since 04 - great but please get out.

Classic and I'm sure no CGT owner will argue with you
