    I had this 32 Ford 2 door sedan for 22 years. The first picture was when I brought it home for $450.00. Second picture was after it was finished the first time. The last picture was as it was when I sold it over 20 years ago.

    I've had my '56 Ford since '79. I was born in 1980. My dad bought the car with hopes of it being a father/son or father/daughter project. I just moved the car to my shop a few weeks ago. It is now a father/son/grandson project.
  15. Have had my '60 Pontiac since 1994. '50 Chevy came later... 2004 or 2005 I think. Hard to believe it's been that long.

    22 years and holding.
  25. 16 years with a 340HP '62 Corvette.
  26. 1966 Dodge Coronet 500 --- April 1980 to present. Nearly 32 years, and I am the second owner. No matter where my automotive interests may lie at any given time, this one stays with me. Period.

    May not be a HAMB-friendly car, but I don't care. I am the only one I need to make happy with it.


    Far as HAMB-friendly cars go, that would probably be my '37 Terraplane that I had for seven or so years.

    I've had my 49 chevy for 35 years and my 61 Dodge Dart for 20.

    had my 1973 Datsun pickup for 32 years... it has been a trailer for 18 years.

    tried to sell the Dodge a few times but couldn't find someone goofy enough to want to own it. people would rather just point and laugh.

    My avatar is a '33 Essex Terraplane Conv. I bought in '68 and kept until 2009 or 41 years.
  29. Bought my '35 Pontiac 3 window coupe in '67 for $100.
    Sold it in '69.
    Bought it back about a month later. So about 43years.

    My first car was/is the 51 Hudson in my avatar. I got it right before my 16th birthday in 1980. I plan on passing it on to my kids some day. The only reason I bought it was because it was the only kind of car my dad would let me have......not sure why since he was not really a car guy. Still thank him all the time for pushing me into Hudsons.
