I've had my 1930 Tudor since I was 15, so 35 years. And my 1939 Deluxe Fordor Sedan for 5 years.

Have owned my '40 V8 tudor 36+ years - bought it the day the Iranians took the American Embassy hostage, and I'm finally starting to work on it (running joke was that it would be my retirement project-bought it right out of high school in 1979). I'll hit 35 years for my '55 Ford and '63 T-bird next year and they're much further along.

I bought my 1949 Ford 1/2 ton pickup while a junior in high school in 1973 for $57.oo. It still runs and will be scheduled for a full restoration in about two years. I also have a 1929 Ford Model A standard coupe my dad bought in 1972 for $700. All original and still running!
