 ```If we are calculating Length of Suffering, it has to be cumulative. Two British cars are twice the headache as one (You can't include parts cars!) I like the idea of the calculation, but it needs refining. The proposed equation: Chronological Age (CA) minus Vehicle Age (VA) plus Years Owned (YO) = LOS has problems. Chronological age at time of purchase plus Years Owned will always equal the owner's age. Owner's age minus Vehicle Age doesn't provide a true measure of the suffering. If I purchased a '73 TR6 last year or brand new in 1973, the LOS number is the same. Maybe we should just go on total years of ownership. Any other ideas out there?
