1 truck - '91 Toyota Pick-Up, 165k and my daily driver (only a short commute to work) so 19 years. I am guessing a lot of the 20+ years vehicles are not daily drivers so that makes mine (and Shawn's) pretty impressive.

It is certainly a little rough around the edges but very reliable. Some of yota's best days IMO were 80s and early 90s.

Not a lady magnet but Uncle Mick would be proud of my inner cheap bastard for still driving it.

14 y/o beater/commuter car & 1 y/o family car...7.5 year average doesn't sound that bad. The older vehicle only has 65K on it, believe it or not, but it is starting to look its age. I'm hoping to keep it going for another 4 or 5 years, though that may be overly optimistic of me.
