Just got it in August. 1966 Plymouth Satellite, 361ci (5.9L) all original except wheels and radiator/water pump, which I just put in after getting it. Had a hair over 94,000 miles in August. Now has 98,000. Runs and drives just like new. Underside is awesome. Has never seen a snow flake. From California originally. Been in Michigan for last 15 years in a heated garage during winter. I don't have a heated garage, but it will not see a snow flake while I own it. Been my life long dream to own a sweet Mopar!!
My first serious girlfriend (as in we live together) inherited her fathers 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 Sunliner. It has 4,000 Km on it. I say "has" rather than "had" because she refused to learn how to drive stick, and she wouldn't let me drive it because it was much bigger than my car "and I'd probably crash". So there it sat in the garage collecting dust for the ~2 years we were together. So far as I know she still owns it and won't drive it and won't sell it either. In 50 years when she dies somebody is going to get an amazing car in an estate sale. I'm not even an fan of old american vehicles but a pristine drop-top that's twice as old as me: that's pretty awesome.
