...vehicle(s)?

Just curious....

Statistics for my current family:

1972 Monte Carlo = almost 5 years (bought March 2002) ... driven over 7K miles since purchased

1976 Monte Carlo Landau = 8 years (bought December 1998) ... driven over 16K miles since purchased

1979 Monte Carlo Landau = just over 14 years (bought October 1992) ... driven over 35K miles since purchased

1981 Monte Carlo SC = 7 years (bought from parents December 1999) ... driven over 7K miles since purchased

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

Statistics for my former family members:

1988 Monte Carlo LS ... almost 4 years (purchased December 1993, sold January 1997)

1997 malibu ... about 2 years (purchased late 1997, replaced late 1999)

2000 monte carlo ... about 4 years (purchased late 1999, totaled June 2003)

So, how about you?

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.

'67 Dodge Polara - had that one for a year back in '79/'80

'82 Dodge Rampage - had that for 4 years

'87 Dodge Shadow ES - leased (thank God!) and dumped at the end

'91 Caprice wagon - 6 years 150k miles, then wiped out on black ice

'98 Blazer 4WD - 3 years, lease up

currently - whatever the boss gives me

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:
