1987 Monte Carlo LS = about 3.5 years (bought July 2003) ... driven over 40K miles since purchased

Statistics for my former family members:

Just over a year.

My dad has owned his 1972 Chevy Van for about 18 years. I believe he bought it around 1989. I don't think he's kept ANY vehicle around for quite as long as that.

I honestly do not know if I will ever keep a car that long.

Sems like the Tight Whips tradition is to change 'em like

underwear... I remember when we went to pick up XP's

'71 Cadillac and he said "this is the one... I'm keeping

this one for a LONG time..." and three month later he's

flipping it for a '67 Razorback.

Give it about 4 more months and I'll have a 1959 Buick

or perhaps some 1930s Pontiac or Buick.

wha.. you ditched your camaro NOS?

I wouldn't say "ditched." It's up for sale though I'm pretty sure my buddy's going to buy it as soon as his brother comes home in a couple weeks to co-sign on a loan. I picked up a Rally Yellow 2006 Cobalt SS Supercharged Coupe a few weeks ago. It's now got 520 miles on it.

You're absolutely right, and you can't tell me you wouldn't have done the exact same thing in my position! Especially since I found out recently that the very first ride the '71 Coupe took under new ownership ended in the tail shaft in the transmission breaking! However, the Eldorado really IS gonna be the one to stay in the permanent collection unless it can somehow be rolled into getting the '32 Packard Light Eight coupe-roadster or 1907/1908 American Underslung Gentleman's Roadster I've always wanted. Maybe even the big orange Brewster-bodied 1915 Crane-Simplex roadster that's been keeping me up nights since I saw it when I was twelve :lol:
