I got my 36 in 79 and it hit the road in 84, my best man and maid of honor drove it in my wedding procession in 90 and it will be right there for our 36th anniversary. It is the second car I've owned (first one was a 65 PONY car) and will also be the last, this one is a keeper. Mitch.
Lets count our fingers an toes,no wait,not enough of those,lets see got it running in 1959,used up 3 motors ,two trannys an a rearend so far,work on killing a 4th motor an #2 rearend, seems a bit sloopy right now !
My Oldsmobile convertible has been on the road since 2001, my previous car a 1939 Ford Deluxe Coupe I started driving in 1976 and sold it in 2000
I’m not far behind you on this ! Don’t give up !
Although I have driven it and made a few changes, mine is not legally on the road and not quite finished.
Sometimes there are other things more important to deal with than old cars.
Maybe we could start a new thread on how long some have been waiting for that first drive?
Got my 55 in 72, it was my first car and my daily driver. It got totaled 5 months later. 6 years after that, it was back on the road.
Owned the wagon for 25 years and it’s been on the road the whole time except when it was down for paint n miscellaneous for a little over a year. My 2 month repaint took a bit longer than I wanted...
my 63 nova conv for39 yrs 4 motors 3 trans and 1 rearend

my brother's 33 chev 5w, bought in 1965, that's 54 years, same basic drivetrain since then, switched from 3-spd to turbo 350 in early 70's, repaint in early 90's, minor upgrades throughout the years in winter but never enough to take it off the road for the summer
The U.F.O and Dodge delivery 40 years my Vette from high school 49 years. And still married to my 16 year old (at the time ) sweetheart. The more memories I make the more I like them.
Sent from my SM-G920P using The H.A.M.B. mobile app
I bought my 40 Dodge in 1971, learnt to drive on it, took it to the 1st Oz Nationals in 1973 and hot-rodded it in 1973, I tell my wife I've been playing with cars longer than I've been playing with girls.........she thinks I'm joking.......lol......andyd
Been drivin' the snot out of Old Yeller on the street for over 24 years, in spite the doubters that say a blower motor is not good on the street.
ZERO, But it is fun watching the others drive around. Still have the '30 Ford Roadster body I found in 1962. Working 13 years in a restoration shop gave me the pleasure of working on some of the finest cars in the world, seeing them in museums or on the show field sure beats driving something I may own.
Had my coupe on the road since 1992. Had a year off to disassemble and paint, and then going ever since.
I bought my 37 Chebbie in 1984 at the seasoned age 24 , my 32 I have owned for 26 years .
15yrs now for my 35 Chebby after a 4yr or so build. My 46 Olds has spent more time in the shed than anything I've ever owned except my house and Chebby!
In my possession since 1968 , on the road since 2002
3 years for my model a sedan- this picture was taken about a minute before it moved under its own power for the first time after becoming a hot rod.
Hot rods tend to come and go about every 5 years or so around my place. This is summer #7 and we started this year off with just over 50,000 miles on my 48 Plymouth coupe, its nearing the longest run and the most miles of any of our hot rods. Gene
Been about better than 60 yrs with my beater.......don't think we will ever part ways.........
I have had the 47 for going on eight years.
20 for my 36, 3 for my 27, good times.
I bought my original car in 1949. It has been split into 2 cars. (with additional parts)
A Bonneville modified roadster that will run at the salt again next year and a 30 2 door parts chaser that I drive a couple times a week.
The Hudson finished in 2005, the Riviera had about 13 years and the roadster first registered in 2012.
