My 91 Cougar was bought new by my Mother, so it has been in the family since new. It was given to me as my first car when I was 16, so that's over 12 years I've had it now.

TM has had his bird since it was born :cool: 5 years with my 96 .
Yup.

Bought it brand new in Sept. '94. So, I've owned it 16 years and 8 months.

It had 56 miles on it when I took delivery because it was driven down from another dealership to the one I purchased it from.

I've put a quarter million miles on it since then.

Got me beat. Similar story with the 93 Cougar in our family as well.

Always been a good car, now going through its resto-phase of life.

That's pretty impressive. Mine had 46k miles when I got it, its up to about 115k now and I thought that was pretty good going!

I actually ended up driving the Thunderbird I now own to my senior prom back in 1996 as it belonged to my grandparents. Upon their passing I got it from my mother.

I guess I'm a fairly new owner. June 6, 1998. It was six and had 60,000 when I got it. Now it has 94,000 and a new engine installed in January 2001. 22K on the new engine.

My dad bought my 95 new with 15 miles on it. I got it from him in 05 with 120,000 on it, its had a few mods and 2 motors since then but it's still in the family. I want my kids to have this one day.

That is good Andy.

Well, my car body has about a quarter million miles on it; the suspension, engine, transmission, exhaust, fuel pump and just about every other moving component were replaced at around 205,000 miles.

I bought my 94 LX in January 1998 with 49,795 miles on the odometer. Still have the original paperwork. The car was originally purchased in August 94 at the same dealership I bought it at in 98 so I have all the service records. The original owner traded it in on a 97.

So it's been my daily driver for a little over 13 years. I've put about ~190k miles on it myself. I plan on driving it at least another 13 years so SCTbird1994 is rebuilding the motor and is almost done. But these next 13 years I wont be putting that many miles on it :)
