Default 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.

Bought my 49 F1 in August 1973 - coming up 40 years. Cost $100 and was driveable ... sort of - you have a lot of flexibility when you're 15. Spent a few more zeros since.

My 1936 Ford Woodie has been in my family since the mid-1960's, when it was given to my mom from my father's father as a gift. That means 45+ years in my family.

Family lore says he found it in a barn in New Hampshire, covered in hay.

I have owned it since my mom passed away 4 years ago and left it to me.

Now it cruises the streets of Jamaica Plain, (Boston), full of neighborhood kids squealing with delight.

I am slowly restoring it.

We've had our '36 Phaeton about 3 1/2 years.

There is a fellow in our vicinity whose mother bought him a '36 Phaeton while he was in high school. The family owned a gas station and car repair business and the car never left his ownership, nor was it ever heavily modified.

He changed over to sealed beams, and may have put hydraulic brakes on it, otherwise it's as original as you would ever find. He's in his 90s' but the car will go to his son.

So '49 to 2013, 64 years. Not that he's a barner, but that is the longest ownership I know of.

Bought her in 89, ran it for a couple of years, then tore it apart. Didn't really know what I was going to do with it but I knew it would not be stock. Finally found vintage stuff and mocked it up last week. I hope to have her completed by summers end.

I purchased my '36 Ford in September 1952... That will be 61 years come September.
I bought it from the original owner for $125., the odometer showed 51k and change.
The odometer now shows 39K... Doing the math, I have driven "Henry" 88k, not to bad for a car that I paid $125. for... With all of the repairs and modifications, I have spent right at $2,300. during the years I have owned the car...
I started a log book on the car when I bought it... The first expenditure was the purchase of hydraulic brakes from a '41 Ford... The log book documents every expenditure for parts/repairs...

Mine has been in the family 53 years. Avatar pic was taken the day we brought it home
in 1960. Sold it to my bro in '68 when I went over-seas, then bought it back from him in
'76 a bit worse for wear. Moving ahead at glacial speed; and now my first car is on my
bucket list!

The cars/trucks I still have, I've owned for a while. My dad bought the '66 Lincoln Convertible new in November of '65, he also bought the '68 Jaguar E-Type new in '68. I bought my '53 Crestline Sunliner in '73, the '39 CS in '91, the '47 Ford Convertible in '95, the '55 Studebaker Speedster in '98, '51 F-1 in '98, the '39 LZ in '99, the '63 Studebaker Avanti in '01, the '49 Lincoln Cosmopolitan Convertible in '05 and the '53 F-100 Panel Truck in '07. I've only sold two antique cars that I've owned, a '48 TuDor Sedan, when I got drafted in '69 and a '46 TuDor Sedan when I moved to Florida in '92.

Wow, lots of these cars have been owned for a very long time. Makes me wonder if in about 15 years more of these Fordbarn "keepers" will be for sale.

I have owned my '40 in my avatar for 33 years now. It really comes home when I look at photos of me with the car in the early years I had it. The car has held up much better than I have.

It was Nov. 1960 when I got my '31 Coupe.....and at 15 years young, built my first car....still have it, still drive it.....OK, it's a 'Real Hot Rod', and that's what we did back then....it's a keeper and part of the family....53 years and counting....I guess they will have to bury me in it when it's time.

My grandfather bought our the family farm in 1946. Along with the deal was a 1945 Ford truck (see avatar). Between my grandparents, father and uncle, they logged over 300000 miles on this truck. The truck was parked in the barn for a long time when I was young and not driven. My grandfather gave me the truck in 1990 and also paid for a local restorer to do a decent frame off. 67 years in the family!

I got both my 39 coupe(imported from west Virginia to here in the u.k ) and my 37 zephyr coupe (right hand drive )in the same year 24 years ago ....not a record ...I tore them both apart to restore and got bored /sidetracked with classic bikes and an old house...the 39 is almost finished and the Lincoln I,m hopefully going to do serious work on soon ....I,v just imported a 51 f1 truck that is needing work that I didn't expect and the years are a rolling on rather quickly and the English winter is coming ,need to get up earlier and work later..... oh well..the fun of old cars, cheers jim.

Had a friend who bought a new Plymouth Coupe in 1941, owned and drove the car on a regular basis until his passing in 2010. His widow still has possession of the car, along with a '58 Chrysler 300. At the visitation at the funeral home they had put together a video of him and his wife with the cars he had owned over the years.
I think the number of years would be 69 or so.

Although I owned a 1935 Ford Convertible Sedan for 50 years it was regretfully sold a few years ago. I am driving a 1930 Ford Coupe owned 72 1/2 years and continually registered except during my military service WWII. I also drive a 1929 Ford Phaeton owned 59 years and also continuously registered, a 1931 Postal truck owned 55 years, and a Mustang bought new in 1964 the introductory year of the Mustang.

I bought my 1940 Ford Deluxe Coupe back in 1974 for $225.00 with money I had earned mowing lawns. I was 15 years old, and started high school the following week. I found the car parked in front of a house along a narrow country road in the Sierra Foothills. The asking price was $300.00, but dad helped to negotiate the price down. He, and my uncle, then helped me to drag it back home to the bay area. It was an old hot rod that had a rusted solid 1953 Buick V8 mated to a 1939 Ford transmission, and a 1948 truck rear axle. Someone had taken a sledge hammer to the firewall. The interior was gutted, except for a pair of 1963 Falcon Convertible bucket seats bolted to and angle iron frame that was welded to the floor (I threw the seats away; years later such seats have sold for up to $1,000.00 a pair!). It took another 15 years for me to collect parts, learn how to build cars, and save enough money to have things like the bodywork and paint done. Completed in 1989, I entered it in the 1991 Grand National Roadster Show at the Oakland Colosseum. It brought home a second place in the Custom Rod Coupe Class. I have driven the car as far South as Anaheim, CA and as far North as Victoria British Columbia. The last time I looked at the odometer, it was just shy of 30K miles.

There is a young fellow by the name of "Buzz" P in the Washingto DC group that has owned his '36 Conv Sedan since 1936. I believe he still has some of the original tires on it.

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'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!

Less than 1 year, but hope to hang on to this one. I've owned a 1939 Ford Pickup, a 1935 Ford Pickup and a 1969 Triumph TR6. Others not worth mentioning.

1937 Ford stake pickup. My grandfather got it for $75.00. It's been in our family since 1957. It was a basket case for over 30 years. It was stored in 2 garages and moved twice. Restored last year. My grandfather taught me to drive in it in the early 60s.

My 1938 Ford Pickup belonged to the family since before I was born, but it became mine in 1986. I never thought to ask when they bought it and now they are all gone so I will never know. If family ownership counts then longer than my 64 years, but if my ownership counts then 29 years. Either way I love that old truck, I learned to drive in it.

My Dad had my '36 PU since the mid 50's, I got my '42 in the mid 90's.
My Dad gave the '36 to the neighbor for "rent" when he stayed at his place in the Bay Area welding in the ship yards, actually gave him 2 '36 PU's.
Anyways, in the late '70's the neighbor had used the best parts of the two to make one for his son, but the guy doing the work kept stealing from him (seem the guy's brother had a '36 PU as well)...the last straw for the neighbor was when the went to test run the '36 in the driveway...it had a SBC and Muncie 4speed in it at the time...

Seems it was real easy to slide the gear shift around..on a freshly rebuilt tranny....they pulled the tranny...odd, it was pretty light, the guy doing the work pulled all the gears/bears/etc out of it, cluged up something for an output shaft...and split.

The neighbor called me and said "Mike, you want them 2 '36 PU's?"...I said "sure",

He said "Then get your @ss down here and get them"!!

Anyways, thought I'd share that.

I have a Farmall Cub, back in West Virginia, it looks about like yours. I hear that those front wheel weights are fairly scarce.

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 replied earlier. I guess I tend to keep things a long time. I was dating my future wife when I bought my 1934 pickup in 1957. we now are in our 57th year. Turns out to-day is the 50 year anniversary of the day we moved into our house on the St Clair River in Corunna Ontario.

I bought my 32 Model B 5 window in August of 1969 for $300. I still have it.
I borrowed $150 from my girlfriend Donna to buy it.
For years I would tell her "the only reason I married you was so I wouldn't have to pay you back the $150" she would always say " I know that, just make sure you tell the Divorce Lawyer it's half my car".
She passed away in July of 2006. We were married for 35 years.

Me and my brothers standing in front of my Merc about 1966. Of course it was my dad's at that time and we were just the noisy kids that rode in the back seat. I think Dad bought the 52 Merc in the fall of 1959 so its been a few 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.
