My father bought my '32 5-window in 1952.

So it has been in the family for 65 plus years.

I've owned my '41 for just over a year, my Dad bought me my first car in 1964 it was a '50 Ford 2 door sedan, we refreshed the motor and I kept it for two years, stupidly I sold it. I hope to pass the '41 onto one of the Grandkids.

Bought my 34 in 1972 (45 years ago). Finished the restoration this spring. Aside from the upholstery, I completed all the work myself and with a little help from my friends.

I first bought my 32 5window coupe in 1974 or75. I kept it 15 years and sold it. Tracked it back down and bought it back in 2012 so I have had it about 20 years, off and on.
My 34 pickup I have owned 15 years.

This is my favorite...$15 and folks said no, took 64 years to rectify that error.
