1996 Cadillac SLS 68K miles
1998 Lincoln Signature Town Car 114K miles
Both have all that we need for safety, comfort, driveability and economy.
Both look like new and over the combined 23 years of our ownership, the annual cost of ownership including original purchase price is $1326/car. Includes all repairs. (excludes taxes, registration, insurance, basic fluids maintenance and fuel)
I do have to click the remote to open the locks, and both times I had to parallel park (driver tests) Had to do it (shudder) manually.
Trade the 6way leather seats or the JBL and BOSE CD player systems, or the OBDCII readings... and the adjustable air ride electronic systems and the super quiet ride for a back up screen?.... naw! Just too set in our ways to wanna try the new stuff.
On the one time each year I fill up with premium unleaded, indulge my primal joy... cruising the local highway stoplights for the young kid in his '64 GTO... and leaving him in the dust with the SLS.
Yeah... so in our own way, already have new car technology.
