Default What’s the longest time you’ve owned a vehicle

At risk of being flamed for talking about cars on here... what’s the longest you’ve ever owned a vehicle?

I bought this one in 1998 when I was 21 and still have it:



Bought this one in 2006 from a guy in Denver, CO and still have it:

Bought my 66' coupe in 2005, restored it over 3 years and still have it today.

It's going back under the knife this year/next year. New paint, wheels, interior, fixing a bunch of small broken things that I've let slip for the past 15 years.

That's my problem. I buy vehicles and never intend to sell them. My want list would easily add 5 vehicles to the list if I had the funds and somewhere to keep them. And time to build them.



The current daily was special ordered in 2011 and I've done more work to it than any other vehicle I've owned. it's got a built motor and big twin turbo kit sitting in the wings waiting on my play money funds to recuperate so I can finish the build/motor install.

I want to add a 'work truck' to the stable - something like an older ugly F250 4x4 that I don't have to worry about scratching. But that's another vehicle to maintain and insure...

My 2010 ZR1. Got it new back in December 2010 and still have it. It makes me smile still after all this years every time I hit the happy pedal and bang it through the gears.

Super clean truck!

My truck problem is worse than my car one.

Insurance/maintenance does suck. One of my employees told me I need to open a battery and tire store with as many as we go thru.

I bought my 96 Z-71 in 2010. I figured out I really didn't need a 3/4 ton diesel for a 4 wheeler and trips to Lowes.

I had one make it 4.5 years. Next runner up is 3 years. Then a bunch between 1-2 years, and a bunch less than a year. I've had about 30 at this point, so roughy more than one a year since I got my license at 16. I like too many cars. I can find something likable about nearly any vehicle that had some effort put into it. At this point the only cure would be for me to own 4ish cars at a time, with one constantly rotating out into something different, and I'm just no longer interested in putting up with all the baggage that comes from maintaining that many lifestyle accessories.

We've had the X4 almost 5 years now, and looking at moving to leasing.

That’s awesome - I was wondering if we’d see any posts like this. My ‘64 1/2 has the 260 as well.

I kept my T100 from 1996 fall until spring 2012. I swapped it for a 2005 jeep that my son drives now. I bought my 2K GT in 2002 and still have it. I'm driving an Edge that is 10 years old. We keep our buckets a long time.
