52 years old

I was down the road from the office this week and saw this car pull into a spot near me. I approached the driver as it was a familiar model.  It was a 1965 Pontiac Parisienne and it was in great shape.  It turned out that he’s the original owner and has been driving it for 52 years. He had it repainted 5 years  But imagine driving the same car for 52 years!!

No heated seats, no power windows, no satellite radio, no pollution controls. It’s really amazing how much technology is now part of our car experience. Not this one.

I can’t say I’ve ever met anyone that is driving a car this old and it’s their regular car – not a collector’s item.
