    l been wondering so l have to ask,,,

    what is the longest you have owned a classic/rod vehicle?
    two catagories for me. before being legally able to put in my name and after it was in my name.

    l was seven and told grampa his 1957 chevy 4 door was mine and he said OK.

    then when l turned eighteen she was regeristered to me. so l have had this one car for 45 years.

    she is tore down right now. (red/white is the dream)

    March 1957 was my 1st car which I still have and drive. Paid $140 for it from my paper route money. Keeping that car was one of my smarter decisions in life!
