How long have you had it......

Just wondering how long you all have had your trucks? I've had my 1972 short bed step since I was 17, making 28 years of ownership.

Re: How long have you had it......

I'm really surprised mine made it through my teens and early 20's. It was my daily driver for over 10 years

Re: How long have you had it......

I tried to purchase my 7 GMC back in 91. Finally was successful in 2012...Patience pays off.

Re: How long have you had it......

My dad bought my Jimmy in '77 when I was 9. Was wrecked in '87 and he gave it to me. Bought with 113k miles, wrecked at 242,000 and motor swapped at 252,000 when timing chain broke. Over 340k now and 33 years under my ownership.

Re: How long have you had it......

My 2001 Chevy 1500 I bought brand new, so 19 years. My 72 C10 I’ve owned a little over one year. I’m keeping both as long as I live.

Re: How long have you had it......

Bought my first one in 2001 and sold it in 2014. Bought my present truck in 2014 and think it'll be my last but wife laughs when I say that.
