Okay, I admit it, I’m solidly working class. But this thread still really threw me for a loop what with the repeated “11 years old, oh my god, why is your car so aged and non-shiny?”’ type comments. Right now, I’m driving a 1990 Grand Am and it’s the newest car I’ve ever had. Before that, I drove a 1982 Rabbit, and the car before that was a 1974 Maverick. I figure, by the time I’m a grandmother I might have cracked the millenium production mark.
I know this board probably skews a bit more toward the financially comfortable side, but I can’t be the only one driving around a car that rolled off the line when “Don’t Have a Cow, Man” was still considered a snappy retort. So out with it, which doper drives the oldest car? (And I don’t mean the collectible types that you’ve got sitting in your garage and drive twice a year, so go brag about that somewhere else!)
