I had an '05 car that was going to run and run and run. And then someone smacked the hell out of it three years ago and that was that.

I still miss that car.

Up until March i had an immaculate 03 car (25K
mileage!), but i bit the bullet and got a new one, as i
wanted air con and DAB radio, which didn`t come as
standard in 2003! Plus, i fell in love with my wife`s
automatic after getting fed up of stop/start traffic, so
got one too! The scary thing is, if i keep my new car as
long as my previous one, i`ll be 70!

I learned to drive on my cousin's '78 back in the early eighties. I was able to get that car in '92, and have had it since. Though admittedly rarely drive it.

Tangent: as some of you know I’ve had the shell of a kit of the 1966 TV Batmobile sitting in my garage(s) since before the turn of the century, waiting for me to put a car chassis under it.

Problem: the required base belongs to a 1971 Lincoln, and try finding one of those that hasn’t rusted out from the bottom up!

(Full disclosure, the real reason I haven’t finished the car is that I keep spending the money on other things—like, somewhat ironically, my PT Cruiser in ‘00.)

Have you tired finding one out say in Arizona, or California?  Someplace like that where there isn't a lot of salt on the road?

Do you ever just go out, sit (or stand) in the shell and recite "Atomic batteries to power, turbines to speed"...?
