Illustration for article titled Whats The Oldest Car Youve Ever Owned?

Let me explain the rules for this one. If in 1965 you sold your 1964 Beetle (presumably to buy that new fangled Mustang) you only owned the VW for one year. However, if you currently own a 1964 Bug, then you own a 34-year-old car 43-year-old car. Get it? Going back to yesterday's Question, yes I did own a 1985 Pontiac Parisienne Safari Station Wagon. But it had 187,000 miles on it, which led to its 7 cylinderization, which led to it being towed away with most of the engine in the back in 1995. Which makes it a 10-year-old car. Which means the oldest car I ever owned is 10-years-old. We're setting today's Question up this way because A) Murilee and I are generally interested in you alls mechanical skills (not that I have any) and B) it's a quick and dirty way for us to see who actually reads what we write. So have at it.
