Re: What percentage of 20 year old cars are on the road?

Perhaps your personal opinion explains why there are so many Crown Vic's and Grand Marquis in Florida and Arizona. There are a large percentage of older
folks in those states, that are more highly educated with higher incomes, who maintain their vehicles better and will be less likely to drive in a way that will total the vehicle, than the purchaser of many of the small or midget cars that do not do nearly as well with longevity because they are more likely to keep them till they, or the car, dies.
I think one reason one may keep their Toyota longer than average new car buyer, is the average Toyota buyers are older and more likely to be female. They buy cars like they buy their appliances. They rely on what they read in magazine like CR etc., rather than real car guys that read magazines like Motor Trend, Car and Driver, Road and Track etc. ;)

If you think that you are not biased, you are mistaken. In addition, if you think that Car and Driver has better advice on which cars to buy than CR, you are also mistaken. ANd in the 2009 C and D ten best, only two were American brands (Caddy CTS and Corvetter). So, if you are saying C and D is for real cars guys, then the real car guys are saying buy from overseas.
