    What's youre longest time of car ownership ?

    Mine is my 1961 Mercury Meteor 600 2dr sdn w/460/C6 One of 18 left alive in the U.S.A. - 18,000 total mfgd - 22 years and not another single human being ever drove it in that whole time.

    1979 Elky, i bought it summer of 1986, ground up resto, bumper to bumper, everything new. It rolled out of the paint booth Dec. 24th 1988, and still has the same paint on it today, guess that would be almost 25 yrs. Something i've had longer than 2 wives combined. I'll never sell it.
    little bit of water on the hood i had just washed it.

    Thanks Wabbit. My son is in the back... he is like double that size in 5 years!!
    It is sad looking at the picture & seeing how young my son was... that night I remember he fell asleep in that car (front seat) & his head bobbled into the roll bar... he tried so hard to be tough & not cry... I felt so bad & padded it when I got home. Scooter

    Hey Scooter tell him not to worry about hitting his head and crying. Life is a LOT SIMPLER (and more fun) when we are still young enough to cry.
    Maybe wait till he's 30 and tell him. He'll understand then.

    AMEN. About 30... we look back and say we should have enjoyed it more. I know how he feels, I cried after the last election.

    I cried inside when my Merc went byebye. Crying has a renewing effect on ya, time to go on to the next exciting part of your life !

    An old friend says "Goodbye".........The real bummer is, I could only get 2K for him...Not a highly desirable collector car.
