I wouldn't think of 2004 as old, but everyone who gets in remarks on the tape deck of my Acura RSX. It has 156k on the odometer. Brakes, tires, and clutch have been replaced, and a couple superfluous parts of the exhaust system have rusted off; otherwise she's mostly original and the tape deck still works!

DW has an 07 Ford Focus. Not sure how many miles it has, but it's on its third transmission.

I drive my dad's 2000 Mercury Sable station wagon, which was top of the line when he bought it. I inherited it in 2011 with 13000 miles and it now has 50,000. It seats 7, which works well when we have our 5 grandchildren visiting. Not long ago, a man tried to buy it from me in the Walgreen's parking lot. He said less than 300 were made with the more powerful engine in the SW style and he had been looking for one. He kept offering more until he got to $4000, but I said no. I couldn't replace it for that.
