    17 years.
    1977 F-150 4X4 Styleside
    300cid. 4 speed.
    Sold it with 210,000 miles for $2300. Paid $6300 for it new. It was a real work horse.
    Currently I drive a 1998 F-150 that I have been driving since Aug. 97. so that makes it 11 years old. Only 98,000 miles on it too. For whatever reason I tend to “keep em”.

    1987 GMC 4X4 Sierra Classic. Only failed me twice – 1 dead battery and 1 bad starter. When she hit 200K, I cut her back to about 2000 miles per year.

    Dodge Caravan for 10 years. Wow, it hurts to even write that out. In the eight year my two kids were praying that it would break down for good so that they could begin driving on something else. I followed up the Caravan with a Jeep Laredo for another 6.5 years.

    I had a ’72 Corolla that I sold in ’93. 21 years old when I sold it, original motor 213,000 miles when I sold it, and the only major work done on it was to rebuild the transmission.

    The day I sold it it ran almost like new. 8D

    I had a 99 Ford Ranger ……… sold it last year (07) with around 180K miles …….. And to think in 3 more payments it woulda been mine :D

    Other than regular maintance I put on a alternator and set of ball joints [=}=] I really liked that truck.

    Well, where do I start…

    Had a 1966 Ford Fairlane for about 12 years. Tranny went out and sold it with 125,000 miles on it.
    Had a 1972 Checy Kingswood station wagon for 15 years. Sent it to the scrap yard with 327,000 miles on it when it dropped a lifter. Was going to fix it but my wife refused. The Floor boards had rusted through and she was afraid we’d loose the kids through them.
    Had a 1987 Toyota Corrola and sold it after 13 years with 239,000 miles on it.
    Had a 1988 Ford Aerostar and sold it last year after 16 years with 257,000 miles on it.
    Have a 1995 Honda Accord with 163,000 miles on it.

    As you can see I don’t believe in keeping the economy afloat by buying a new car every few years. ;)

    I’m still driving the car my parents got me when I got my license 6 and a half years ago, and they bought it off of my sister who bought it and drove it for 3 and a half years before my parents bought it for me. It’s a 98 Nissan 200 SX, with “getting close” to 200 thousand miles, I say getting close becuase the tack stopped working at like 127 thousand miles or something like that. It’s a reliable car with really good gas mileage for being a 98, I’ll probably drive it till it dies. :thumbup

    I’m not a big fan of buying new cars/trucks. As long as it holds together, I’ll drive. I bought my Toyota 4WD pickup new in 1993. I still drive it everyday. It has 225,000+ miles on it and the only replacement part I put on it is a waterpump. I’m thinking I could get another 100K out of it.

    Had a 1979 F150 for 7 years. I got it in 1987 and sold it in 1994.
    I now have a 1999 F150 and have had it 6 years and will have to keep it a few more years.
