Longest Cord driver? was created by Ric Simpson
Hi all! I have been driving a Cord since 1950, illegally even earlier! Can anyone top that? I have legally owned a Cord since 1952. It was my daily driver, as were the next two Cords. I haven't sat down and correctly examined my records to determine my exact total mileage, but I believe it to be close to 500,000 miles. I always tell people if anything can go wrong, it has already happened to me! 3 times!! All the best, Ric.

Ric,

That will be tough to beat. My dad bought his first speedster in 1956 and his 812 a few years later but that took 10 years to restore. He still is driving the 812 but is on his 3rd Speedster. He bought his Packard Darrin around the same time and still drives that regularly.

I was told that Bruce Woodson is the longest continuous owner of a Cord (1941?) and Auburn (1938). Al Frankel of CA holds Duesenberg honors (1949).

Years of ownership is one thing. As Ric points out, driving distance is a whole other experience and accomplishment.
