What's your oldest ship?

I've been a packrat my whole EvE career and have recently been traveling around EvE liquidating many of my assets. Mostly because I try looking for something I know I have somewhere and can't find it so I would end up buying another (I've misplaced more than a few battleships that way). Yes, I could have used filters but that's like three extra clicks but anyway...

I came across the third ship I ever owned (a wreathe) that I bought in June, 2008. It got me thinking how old is eveyones oldest ship? I left my wreathe in place with the trit I had in the hold just as a reminder of when I first got going. BTW I am frankly surprised at how much stuff I had (have) scattered around. I'll have to get me a new shiny with all the ISK...

I have ships from 2004, frigates and shuttles, all over EVE.

Been around since the beginning.

Realistically speaking probably the Apotheosis -shuttle, poor thing must have a layer of dust a couple of meters thick by now.

My oldest ship is a few days old. They don't last long. Twisted

Hmmm, I'd have to say the 'friends' I inadvertently made when I first played my two week trial back in '05 or '06.

I tend to get everything that I FLY blown right up in a relatively short period, so probably the Echelon from whenever that was? Start of incursions I guess?

I have a few Blockade Runners that I still use regularly that are pretty old.

So how do I actually know they are old ships?

Well, they have large rigs in them. And I had them for about a year or more before the rig change. That's a pretty long time ago, though I can't be bothered to try and remember exactly how long.

I just lost a Vengeance to one of those burner missions. I noticed the loss mail had large rigs.
I still have a couple ships with large rigs.
Probly still have the first Abaddon I ever owned.
