What is the shortest you owed a car and what is the longest?
For me the shortest was an Eclipse had it 7 month put 3700 miles on it and traded it in on a 94 Camaro. The longest was my Lincoln Mark 8 had it 13+ years put 103,000 on it and traded it in on a Camaro.

Owned a 2002 Volvo S80 T6 and an 06 Subaru WRX STi for 2 months each and the longest I've owned a vehicle is 1.5 years and that was a lifted 2005 Chevy 2500hd.

I plan on owning my Camaro forever and hopefully passing it down through the generations...

Owned or driven? My first car I technically had for 4 years before I actually drove it..but only drove it less than a year before it was totaled(so almost 5 years total). And that was a 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais.
Longest owned and driven was a 1997 Chevrolet S-10 LS at 3.5 years.

shortest: 92 Escort wagon that i inherited from my grandma. i used it for 9 months to drive back and forth to baton rouge for library school and then sold it to a friend so i could buy my Roadmaster. i definitely do not miss that Escort. that thing had NO BALLS!

longest: 2002 Firehawk. picked him up from the dealer on 10/20/2001. daily drove him for 8 months... then started getting beaters. i don't drive him much anymore... mainly just to car shows, but it's been 8 1/2 years now and he still gives me permagrin

Shortest: 91 Z28; only had it about 3 months. I was hoping it would thrill me like my IROC did, but it did not.

Longest:93 Mustang GT; had it almost 2 years. I had a hard time selling it (not emotionally) since I had put so much money into it.
Present: '02 SS #7146
Past: '89 IROC-Z|'91 Z28|'00 SS #0795|'01 Z28
