So this was an interesting realization...
I was having dinner with my mom tonight, and we got to talking about the many different cars I have owned, and I realized that through all the cars I have had over the years, I have never owned a newer car than I did when I was 17 years old and in high school! Back in 1999, I had my 91 cougar, which at the time was 8 years old. Other cars I got later were my 79 firebird, an 89 buick regal, 89SC, and a 91 bird. Eventually I got my 94 cougar, but that wasn't until 2003, so it was 9 years old! A couple years later I got the 94 crown vic, then the 89XR7, and a couple months ago, I bought a 98 MarkVIII, and while I love the car, it occurs to me that it is still older than the car I had in high school!
If I didn't love MN12s/FN10s so much, I think I'd be disappointed at my lack of progress in life.
