Default Longest owned vehicle?

Well my 1982 Ford F-150 has surpassed my 1972 Ford Courier as I have been
driving it since 1989 to present day! I have never owned a new vehicle (not
counting the Kawasaki 90) that Pop bought for me as a kid. But, I might need
to retire my "old girl" as a triple core radiator is unavailable locally. I had to
settle for a 2 core all brass radiator to get my old "workhorse" back on the
road while my poor Toyota Camry is in the shop. The Toyota is the "newest"
vehicle I own & was nearly restored to mint-condition before a dork pulled
blindly into my path & stopped from the Post Falls Wall-Mart! It was a 1990
Camry DX that I had upgraded many of its options to the LX/ "luxury model"
sans the v-6 engine, but the rebuilt 4cyl engine & car got a reliable 20 mpg
city & easily got 34+ mpg hwy! Thankfully, my old truck is retired from use as
my primary work vehicle when I was self employed for several years...(1993-
2000)!

My 1963 Chevy pickup, which I have owned since 1960, runs better than my 2006 ford pickup and does more work. Better gas mileage and much easier to work on. I also have a 1950 Farmall M that works every day of the week and started this morning at twenty below. They sure don't build them now the way they did back then.

I never own cars long.
But I do like to
hit enter after every
four or five words
so it is easier
for ya'll to read
you know like this.
I find it much easier
to type like this
verses just typing
and letting the computer
wrap the text for me
Not sure why I
like doing this but,
I do love doing
this kind of formatting
just so everyone can
read it easier.
What do you think
about it?

I screwed up the Chevy is a 1953 not a 1963. Sorry. I got a new computer with a black keyboard and these old eyes are having a problem with it. Would go back to the old one but gave it away

Had a 1967 Jeep J-3000 long bed pick up from 1984 to 1995. The longest I ever owned a vehicle. It was my dad's truck that he had bought new in 1967 and had sold it to me when he bought a new vehicle. I sure miss that Jeep P/U.

My current DD is a 1998 Chevy S-10.Over 200thousand. Had it since 2001. Looks pretty rough but runs well.
