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...

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 :D

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.

Current vehicle: 4.5 years; 2001 Ford Money Pit Sport 4x4. Est trade in value: A Vespa.

Shortest? A 1965 Caprice with a 327 4bbl. Back around 1979, I bought it for 25 bucks in the morning off some guy needing money quick, me and some friends drove it around and played "Dukes of Hazzard" in the fields, and that afternoon got tired of it, and sold it to a guy wanting the engine for $45 plus the $5 for gas I put in it that day.

Longest? So far it'll be 25 years this Feb 26th. Picked up (and still have) my black 85 442 from James Oldsmobile in N. Charleston, SC. It now has 60K miles on it, awaiting a full frame off resto.



Even got some "NOS" keychain and dealer trunk emblem I stashed away when I picked up the car and the sold tag that hung on the mirror when they put it in the showroom before I came to pick it up:

Shortest owned vehicle, a 1974 comet for about 2 months, bought it for $350 while in high school, did major damage to it when I rolled over a concrete parking block in the winter after a snowfall covered the parking lot.

Longest owned vehicle, a 1990 Cavalier Z24, it lasted 13 years and 120K miles before I got a trade in value of $200 towards a used 2001 Dodge Stratus R/T.

When I was 18 years old I bought a brand new Suzuki Katana, why bc a girlfriend said I would want a motorcycle, registered it Friday night,had my Dad drive it home,did a few figure 8's Saturday morning, and by Sunday afternoon I went off the road,flipped it end over end, and it ended up in a cow fence and totalled it,so I guess 1 1/2 days...longest would have been my first Camaro, owned that for about 7 years, now I'm lucky if we keep something 2-3 years...
