Peter Butler loves Nissans. The 92-year-old man from Somerset County in the UK has just bought his 32nd Nissan from the same dealer, where he’s been a customer for 41 years.

In an interview with The Daily Mail, the former Royal Air Force pilot said, “A lot of people ask why I’ve bought so many Nissans and I tell them, why change when you have something which satisfies you. I know the cars won’t let me down.”

It all started when Butler bought his first Datsun Cherry from Howard Motors in 1974, for the price of £3,750. “We literally stopped in our tracks,” said Butler in reference to what was probably a rather unusual opinion for the time, “I went and bought it because we liked the look of it.”

“I bought that car for my wife and then a few months later I bought myself a Sunny as the Cherry was so reliable.” Butler says that the only one of his nearly three dozen Nissans to ever gave him a problem was a Sunny whose gearshift came off in his hands while driving through a roundabout.

According to the article, Butler has owned one of every Nissan model ever made, but that seems rather unlikely. We’d love to see Butler reward himself with a GT-R, though.

Still, there’s no denying the man’s dedication. How many people can say they’ve owned 32 cars of any marque, much less the same one?

    P11 Primera, one of the BEST cars that Nissan has ever made, probably second only to the U13 Bluebird in my opinion.

    Well yes, if you sell them at an average age of 1.3 years…

    Sounds like he has had more models than Leonardo Dicaprio, but it is still hard to believe that he has had all of them. Either way it would be interesting to see the list.
