    IMG_0066.JPG IMG_0031.JPG IMG_0177.JPG My father in law has had this 1972 Cuda since early 1973. It was bought new to be a drag car and only raced 3 times. It only has 29,000 miles!!!. Now we are the ones that drive it and it sits at our house all summer:cool: Its sporting a built 340, 4spd trans and 4.56 gears in the original 8 3/4 rear end. Hell the bias ply tires were still on it as of 6 years ago.

    I am terrible in this regard because I really enjoy driving different cars just for the experience. In with the new and out with the old.

    I had a 73 340 duster 4spd posi. in high school and college. I think back on how I couldn't get it to run right on my limited buget and skills at the time. Wish I still had it. Bought it for 800 and sold it for 800 like 5yrs later.

    I was the second own of a 1985 Saab 900S (4 door Sedan model, no hatchback) that I got in 1992, and drove until 1999. All told ~318K miles. My last Saab, a 1999 900S (5 door hatch) that I bought in 2002 i had until 2010, ~185K at the end.

    I still have the vehicle I bought a few days after I turned 16. An 85 S-10. Bought it in 91, have owned it for over 22 years now. It's been a daily driver, run around truck, wood hauler, weekend vehicle. I haven't driven it daily in over 18 years. It has a bit over 130,000 miles on it. It rolled 100,000 miles 15 years ago.

    I've owned my AMC Javelin since 1996. Guess I keep things a long time. :)
