Do the RIGHT thing.
About 15-1/2 years so far. I have no plans on it going anywhere soon.

Almost 41 years for me. Back in April 1973 I was helping my girlfriend pick out a new Mustang. She was leaning towards buying a Grandé, but we saw the white 73 convertible sitting on the transport truck waiting to be unloaded. We went back the next day and she bought it. I bought it from her about 10 months later and it has remained a part of my life ever since!

Got mine in late '70, so 44 years and counting.
14 months, LOL!
29 years and I have personally put well over a quarter million miles on it. I have touched almost every part of the car. When I don't drive it for a month or two and I get back in it feels like a comfortable shoe. I never get tired of it. I still find myself staring at it and thinking out loud 'that is a beautiful car'.
