    Ten years plus owners check-in here!

    Post in here if you have had your car for ten or more years.

    I have had mine for 12 years. Spent five years stock, then five years with EFI/cams/exhaust, and is now LS-swapped.

    10 years, 2 months. Came in right under the wire.

    Damn it smells weird in this thread, like Old Spice and Matlock.

    I bought mine on Halloween 2008 so that puts me at around 10 1/2 years. Picking up the car was a 500 mile drive home from Sandusky, Ohio to Appleton, Wisconsin and I just missed the first snow storm of the season. The next day we got 12+ inches of snow so I made it back just in time. Then I had to wait another 6 months until spring before I could drive it again.

    Here's one of the first pictures I took after it made it home safely to my garage:


    And a more recent photo after lowering springs, suspension refresh, and other chassis related work.

    I am somewhere around 14 years. I bought 3349 in Lancaster Pennsylvania back in 2005. Moved it to Texas, first 5 years in San Antonio, Then 2 years in Houston. I had to put it in storage while I was over seas, but now it is with me in Florida, hopefully for the rest of my life.
