Yeah there is only me and Rory left of those who went and only me with the same car.

I was just interested if anyone else still has the same car eight and a half years later.

You have so many I can’t remember :lol:

Well time certainly flies , 11 years next month with the Duchess and 10 with scrapper , joined up with the forum at the beginning but didn't really fancy taking my new pride and joy out in early January , still don't really i prefer the summer trips i must admit , there has been a lot of owners/members come and go , cars change hands every few years so i suppose long term owners are a bit unusual , i still get a buzz driving mine so there'll be no change for me for the foreseeable future :)

I still own most of the Jaguars I have ever bought. Including the first two from when I first joined up.

Long term car ownership is certainly not normal now, with most choosing new/ new nearly cars on contract plans/ easy finance.

I wonder what percentage of the population keep a classic car of any kind? Even with the 1000s we see out at shows, I expect it’s still less than 1%?

Scary how time has flown.
Ruby arrived with us later that year(well, with my father-in-law) We have now had her the longest of any car!
