I was 10 when my 32 5-window came into the family. The engine died and it became mine in 1954. Coming up on 60 years.

Bought my '38 Deluxe 4door sedan in 1972 (41 years ago) for $180. It was driveable. Restored between 1978 and 1980.
I would post a pic but it is asking for the url of my image. The image is on my computer

I've had mine for a year and a half. It's my first antique car and I'm nearing the end of the restoration process. This my first post to the forum- can't figure out how to post photos yet, but thanks for letting me join. I look forward to learning from the posts and perhaps contributing from time to time.

I've had my 33 2 door sedan since 1970 - 43 years. These are great stories - the most impressive to me is dbrock. He's got the car he had his first ride in!

I recently aquired the 1946 pickup that my grandfather purchased new. It went to my father and now to me.

A much younger B_man_Al ... circa 1952 ... I guess I didn't own it then, but grampa did. Don't know when he got it ... probably in the 40's

I've had my 1958 Ford Country Sedan (9 Passenger Wagon) since 2005. My grandfather custom ordered it with the 352 Interceptor Thunderbird Special 300 hp engine in two-tone Palomino Tan and Colonial White. It was stored in his potato cellar from 1975 to 2005. All original upholstery (still covered in plastic from when it was new), original glass, etc.

It's getting ready to make a comeback - I can't wait!
