Happy Thirteenth Anniversary Bonneville - 2/4/91 to 2/404 !!

Happy Anniversary, Happy Anniversary, Haaaaaaaaaaappy Anniversary !!
13 years ago today I brought home the Bonneville. Longest I've owned a car, so far.
My uncle told me I " may " break the family record of number of years of owning an automobile. I certainly set the record for highest mileage.
I got to go past 14 years to beat my aunt, 15 to beat my parents and past 16 years to beat my uncle, If my car can hold up that long ! Ha ha ha ha ha..
As the record stands;
Mom & Pops cars : 60 Electra 1961 to 1974 ( tied this one ). 70 Sedan DeVille 1970 to 1985.
Aunt's : 64 Impala 1964 to 1979 . Uncle's: 63 LeSabre 1963 to 1979. (rare car, 3 speed manual, column shift ).
That reminds me I got to take the cake out of the freezer.

So, how many more payments do you have to make on it?
I'm on my second Buick. My brother dumped his Olds and got a Buick, and then he got another Buick for his wife. What's the world coming to?

Payments!? You gotta be kidding. When I bought the car I said to the salesman, " Here's the check gimmie my keys ".
With all my cars I did the - One Time Payment Method.
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

I'm with you on the one payment plan...it's the only way I go when purchasing a car! Borrowing $$$ for a fast depreciating asset is just financially crazy!
Congrats on 13 great years with the car! One more year and you'll beat me (1989 Dodge Dakota donated to a high school last year) and you certainly beat the mileage. (I forget what it was, but under 200K I think).

Congrats on the Bonneville 13th anniversary. The longest I've kept a car is 6 measly years. Don't forget the cake, Harry!! -- markwb 2001 Bonneville SLE

Congrats, we don't really keep our cars very long here. The longest ever has been a 92 Lumina and we got rid of that in 2000 with ~120k miles.

Harry, I gotta tell ya, you are the main reason I frequent this group. I don't even own a GM car (I do have a GMC Yukon) and I usually drive a Honda, but your posts make me smile more times than not. I love how you put a positive spin on your posts which is refreshing with so many curmudgeons in newsgroups these days.
I know how you feel about your car. My wife and I bought our red Honda Civic new in February 1990 and I still drive it daily. We told everybody that it was a Valentine's present to each other, and we actually drove it off the showroom floor of the dealership. I wonder how many people can say that! I guess I'll have to keep it forever for sentimental reasons, but, like your Pontiac, that's OK because it's a really good car.
Congratulations, and enjoy your cake!

You're killin' me by listing those beautiful cars.
They just don't make 'em like they used to. And the really sad part is that I don't think anyone will ever do so again.
Cars today are so darn bland.
Congrats on the B-day, BTW!!
