Man Owned, Drove Same Car For 82 Years

Saw this on Reddit today. Incredible stuff.
The ultimate car enthusiast

Can't believe he only drove 2,000 miles a year.. I've put 5,000 on my E90 in the first two months I've had it

What's the longest you all have owned a car for?

16.5 years and clocking up a mere 14k miles in that time.

Yes, it was a 'classic' car.

It was a Talbot Sunbeam-Lotus.

(not that will likely mean anything to you lot though )
