How Many Years Have You Owned Your Car Or Truck?
 

I have owned my `37 Chevy coupe for 14 years, my `35 Ford Cabriolet for 7.

I have to wonder who has had theirs the longest. Mike Burch has had his cars for a very long time and may hold the record.

I got my 36 Cabriolet to restore 1987, got 40 Ford Pickup 1990 / sold it (Darn it) in 2009 to finish the 36. So it was 19 years for the 40 & so far 26 for the 36

I graduated high school in 1982 driving my 36 4 door sedan and got my 36 roadster in pieces the following year. I still have both , although I haven't driven the sedan any farther than my neighborhood for the last 15-20 years.

56 Chevy - bought new - 57 years next month.
my 'modern' car is a pickup, bought in 71 - 42 yrs.
old fords... 13 yrs is the longest.
How about the guy in the so-cal regional group, Bernie Couch,
bought his 32 roadster in 41 - 72 years !!
And, I think his brother bought his ford a year earlier - 73 years.
These guys have been mentioned in magazines a few times. The story was in the V8 Times, a few years ago.

I bought my 1937 Ford coupe at an estate auction in August of 1968, and drove it home. It had 14,275 miles on it then, so it will soon be 45 years.

55 years for my '35 coupe. I bought in 1958 for a whopping (at the time) $200. The attraction was the low mileage, 19K. It just turn 40K last month.
