    12yrs is my record. Bought my old '66 GTA Fairlane in 1988 when my son was born and sold it in 2000 to build my 35 Chevy. My '46 Olds is a keeper.

    Bought my 1932 Plymouth Model PB coupe in September 1962, 49 years ago this month. I restored it in '96-'97 and have driven it in 4 Great Races. In fact I drove it to work (25 miles) yesterday because the weather was so nice. I think I'll keep it a while longer...

    My pop bought me a 1931 Olds Cabrolet when I was born. It is still in the garage gets out a few times a year. First car that I bought was an OT 1969 AMX when I was 16. It hasn't been out of the barn in 20 years. I am 52 now.
     
  15. I've had my Center Door since 1978 when I shipped it back to the UK from The Columbus Street Rod Nationals, where it had been driven down from Kitchener Ontario.
    I have built if three times, the last build was 11 years ago and how it is now. Even got married in it. Had it for 33years so it's a keeper.

    I remember that car from when I was younger. I live a few blocks from Manuel's old shop. Always wondered where some of the cars ended up!
