75 and bought my Model A 5 years ago and my 41 PU last year and plan to add another one this year or next year. Have to sneak another one into the garage when wife is not looking.

That's what I was wondering, maybe a different meaning of "active".

By "active", possibly we're talkin' about STILL layin' on one's back, underneath one of these old used cars with a monkey wrench in one hand and a screwing driver in the other....on occasion? DD

Getting under there and working isn't so bad at 76, it's getting back up when done or worse if you forget something. Look like a damn upside down turtle trying to roll back upright!

Had a chuckle at your shirt there, Bob.
I feel sorry for the people that don't have a neat old car to roll under.

Hey Bob, that wiring on your 34 roadster needs a bit of a tidy up. Nice car though, do you have some good pics of it ? Keep up the good work. Regards, Kevin.

I'd say BOB certainly qualifies for the Top 3, at this point.
And he has proof!

Koates, You are more than welcome to come & help. You should see the underneath of the dash. I only started this 34 project when I turned 80. That is pretty quick for a bucket case doncha think.
