I will probably keep my 1992 Ford Escort with 215,000 miles, as it still runs like new, though it doesn't look like much. *sigh*

You could always spend a little to make it look fresher. How it looks only has to please you.

I still love my '99 Mustang. I don't care what others think of it, I still think it's beautiful. The other day I was realizing I've put an emotional attachment to it - I've been driving it so long, I couldn't imagine giving it up and someone else driving/owning it. I would feel like just 1 step down from giving up a pet (which I've never done) to give up this car.

And it often comes in handy to have an older car if you have to drive into a congested downtown with aggressive drivers - because when merging in bumper-to-bumper traffic, usually the person with the older car who doesn't care about a dig or scratch wins.
