My 1935 Ford is still going strong. Unknown mileage as the odo doesn't go very high.

1936 Ford Coupe also holding out pretty well.

If you take care of your things, they generally last a lot longer.

Just bought a 2007 Tahoe with a 5.3l engine with a failed lifter. Rebuilt the whole top end of the engine and now runs like new again. $5k was a lot cheaper than new. 166k miles. These things seem to start at $40k new.

Those are just the fun, play cars. The Beetle tdi is my main commuter. $3k for the Tahoe and $2k to repair (parts).
