I bought my 70 SS out of a junkyard 25 years ago, it was pretty much complete but needed everything.

I'm a short timer. Had it since 2000, so it's easy to keep the years i had it straight. 19.

Re: How Long Have You Owned Your Chevelle?

well, I have owned my '71 since 1996, but since my mom bought it new in 1971, I grew up in it. So, it could be 24 years or 48 years - take your pick.


P.S. It no longer looks like a 4x4 - thanks goodness.

I've owned mine since 1977. It's been living here in this little barn since 1980.

Re: How Long Have You Owned Your Chevelle?

Well, my dad bought it in Las Vegas in 1997 I think, and I have had it since September 2013. In a couple years, I'll be the same age as him when he got it.
