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
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?
