Indeed, as title. I was out clattering around in the garage earlier and remembered that I have owned my blue Coupe for 11 years. Many have come and gone in between, but I can't imagine parting with it.

Whats the longest affair you have had with a motor and what is/was it?

:lol:

Longest car owned.

My 220 GSi, bought in april 2010. So 7 years virtually, and about 7000 miles. Off the road since December 2013, cheers greg :wink:

Second longest The MG zr we still have, had it 6 years.

Shortest time - Vauxhall Calibra Red top, had it about an hour and sold it :lol: circa 2002

Also have a Prince Charles and Diana Austin metro die cast commemorative boxed car, has that for over 15 years, does that count? Has possibly seen the road more than my nasp :thumbup:

this one http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Corgi-Die-Cas ... Sw9GhYb4kQ

Had my red coupe for 11 years, been off the road for most of them though so probably doesn't count :lol: my mondeo lasted 6 years so it probably gets the crown since it was an actual car the whole time

Owned my 25 aka the 25X since Jan 2003 so it is a 14 year affair, car was 18 months
old when I got it, it has had a big influence on my life, it is only a 1.4 Impression S so
nowt special but a car doesn't have to be to mean something to the owner.

A bad respray by a reputable paint shop has ruined this car, I am going to part it out
to improve my R8 Cabby, I don't want to but it would take at least another 2k paint
job to fix is and its not worth it. :(

Cheers Vinny, did a lot of miles in that car, had a sound system I built myself for
quality rather than chav tunes, half leather swap, has A/C that still works, few
minor LED mods inside, car was a nice place to be, its just looking sorry for itself
now and stinks of damp, bit like dist after wrenching in the rain lol. :lol:

Maybe. :o

I remember someone on here owning a 220 Nasp Coupe in Flame Red for over twenty years, but I think he recently sold it. I can't recall the guy's name.
