Well, my 'new' car is a 1989 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham with only 211,000 miles.  Has had no major repairs (except a trans to replace the one I broke the reverse backing my boat up a steep drive -- $200 for a used trans; $100 to have it installed + trans oil) and it drives easier and smoother than my friend's 2014 Ford Edge.

It has a twin (almost) in an 87 model year (150,000 miles)

An 85 Eldorado 2 door sedan (shows 97,500 miles)

An 84 Eldorado convertible (42,300 miles)

A 70 El Camino with 200,400 miles that I usually use to pull the boat.

The Corvair is a 65 2 door sedan 110, 4 speed that is under renovation in my garage.

The 57 Corvette (97,500 miles) is the oldest and is also undergoing a renovation in my garage.

And the boat is a 1942 Chris Craft purported to be the very last CC built for civilian sales before WWII, and is my regular 'user' boat.

There is also a 1939 18' Lyman that is in need of restoration.

I don't got nuthin new :-))
