How Long Have You Owned your Skoolie?

I've owned mine now for 12 years. I just wonder how many of you have owned yours longer than that?

I had mine from August 1985 until September 17th last year. It died an untimely death due to failed brakes. The Rocket is dead, long live the Rocket! Check it out at http://www.gentlekharma.com Follow the links at the bottom to the Rocket's own web page.
