Your mom was great for doing that, I had to sell car 6S1855 to pay my mom back for help buying our first house
Owned since 1971, now driven over 242,000 miles, makes me smile every time I drive it and it makes me feel 21 again.😎

I love hearing about these long term owners, and here I am excited about 10 years (almost) of ownership.

Long term.... short term..... isn't the excitement just that ?  One of those things in life so enjoyable, that you can't put a price tag on.

Congrats on that milestone!  I'll have had mine for 35 years ago as of the 1st week of December.  Hopefully I'll make it to 50 years as well.

Good idea!
"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"
