Joseph Macko isn't a casual fan of Cadillac--he may be the GM brand's most loyal long-lived customer.

The Flint Journal says the 84-year-old Macko has been driving Cadillacs since 1955. New Cadillacs. This week Macko brought home his 53rd new Caddy in a row--the latest one from a Michigan dealership that's sold him 22 cars in a row.

He used to buy new Cadillacs, but now Macko leases them, and this year's lease is a 2009 Cadillac DTS--in black. He likes the cars, he says, because of their quality.

And why a new car every year? "You only live one time. Money is to spend," Macko told the paper. "I spend it once I get it."
