<<As of 1 February, I have had my car for 18 years.

Sort of a symbol of why I was able to retire early.


Congratulations, I think you deserve five gold stars for that.

How many miles have you put on the car, and was it new when you bought it? Any plans to replace it? And may I ask what make it is and any comments you may have on the repair history of the vehicle?

I think sheer boredom is a leading reason for a lot of people to replace their cars.

You get a rec for that accomplishment.

Seattle Pioneer

72000 miles
Bought new
Ford Festiva (Mazda built in Korea)
Will replace it when no longer safe
Has never been towed
One reason for not being replaced is total disgust of entire car buying process
