Default Fordbarn Average Age

I just read in the V-8 Times the average age of its members is 74 years. I would have never guessed that. However I am 74 years old.

I wonder what the average age is on Fordbarn? How old are you?

I'll be out of town for the next couple of days. I'll tally the ages up and average them next weekend. Many thanks for all of the response.

I'm coming up 64, and I never smoked, never did drugs, seldom drink alcohol, and I'm a wreck. If I knew back then what I know now I would've smoked, done every drug possible and drank like a fish. I wouln't have been much worse than I am now, but I sure as hell would've enjoyed it more!!

I'm 44. Bought my roadster when I was 19, 25 years ago. I'd say the average age in Australia would be similar to the USA. You really see it when you go to the v8 nats.

This can only mean one thing... you guys that are in the 40's-50's & 60's age bracket need to join the Early Ford V/8 club, this would bring down that 74 year average. I was 47 when I joined now I am 71

Ditto, 56.
Thinking back, as the car is apart to refresh a few things, it's 8 years old, and the garage was "pregnant" for about 8 years also, collecting enough parts about 6 years of the time. Seem'd like forever to get it so-called-done, like yesterday when I first legalized it. Time does fly when you're having fun.

Turned 64 March 8. First car was a 40 Olds coupe, age 10, first ford a 51 two door, age 13. Currently have a 48 Ford short door coupe, several 56 F-100s, and a 64 Fairlane coupe, bought new by my dad in November, 1964, and in which I went to my senior prom in 1965. My 29 year old son has a 70 maverick 2 door which he has installed a 289 in.

I've orbited the Sun 67 times here on earth and coming up on 68 in July. I sometimes feel and act like an 18 year old in a 67 year old body. My wife tells me almost every day that I need to grow up, but I refuse to listen I'm just happy to still be sucking air and driving an old Ford

I am 47 years young.

I am in pretty good shape; I do about 125 push ups and about 80 sit ups (with 15lbs on my chest) each day. Go to the gym three times a week. Feeling pretty good.

Kinda looks like I'm about in the middle of the pack here (born in '51) and starting to feel it.

Retirement looms but I'm in no hurry to wish the time away.

Loving life and in no rush to find out if living beats the alternative - or vice versa!

I was born 30 to 40 years too late, I'm 49. I'm suspecting if you took this poll on the Model A and Model T forums the average age would go up?

I bet the median age 58 and the average age is 59. Ryan could set up a deal that would do all of the calculations. He does this sort of thing on the HAMB and I think one of them was for age. You should ask him.

I got slightly UPSET on my 70th but found comfort in knowing I will always be 5 years younger than my '36+

I'm looking at the age poll listed above and the graphic brings it closer to home. In one year, I'll be in the next to last bar on the graph - the final bar has only 1 person in it! How did I get here so fast. It seems like just yesterday I was wrenching on my 53 Merc conv in Mom's backyard.

I sure got a lot to finish in a short period of time! I'm sure many of you feel the same way but it sure beats laying around waiting to die! In fact, I've noticed many post listing illnesses and most V8'ers come back better than ever. Keeping active may be one of life's little secrets and how could it get any better than fellowship with others of like mind and enjying the the toys we've been blessed with?

Just one more comment - I feel the Lord has blessed me with so many friends on here and other forums that have made my life much richer and enjoyable. Thanks guys.

Wink Re: Fordbarn Average Age

I will be 74 in June, it looks like I am average age for the V-8 Times. Will there be a tally of our average age or a tally of the average age of our oldest ride? PS I still like cleavage at my age?

I'm 54 and enjoy my mini collection of restored and unrestored Fords of the thirties. I've pondered this "average age" question for many years, recognizing today's "kids" no longer seem to be drawn to an original 1934 or 1937 Ford. While none of us are in this wonderful hobby for the money, it does cross my mind that I might be fortunate to live another twenty-five or thirty or more years and that brings up two possibilities...no market interest at that point of what I've got in terms of "old, slow Fords" or assuming my wife and kids outlive me....what burden will a dozen old piles of rolling steel be to them...?

I'm only 61. Ron brings up an interesting point. We may very well be the last of the "old Ford" breed. I think about this alot when I see late model cars beginning to outnumber the pre 48's in many of the magazines I read. I hope to keep my 40 as long as I'm walking ontop of the dirt. I'd like to keep it for my son who was age 14 when I got it. He helped with the build as he could and appreciates the tradtional flathead powered hot rod. When the Good Lord does call,(I hope not anytime soon) I want to be cremated and have my ashes put in the ash tray in the 40. I figure I can still go cruising around with my kid. Glad to see some young members in the group. As well I'm glad to have joined this forum. Good health and long life to all of us. Dan

Well,I just turned 34... I feel like I'm out of the loop...What would our love of hotrods and the flathead be without knowledge that is passed on from generation to generation?There's nothing I like more than to recieve advice and information from people who have "been there done that".I'm starting my first rebuild of my late grandpas 51 flathead and the info I've recieved here is extremely valuable and well appreciated,so thank all of you out there who genuinely care about preserving the past and passing on your knowledge...Thank you

Curleeman, you aren't out of the loop. You are the new loop. We really need guys like you to carry on this great hobby. Yeah, there are a lot of old farts like me, age 80, but it is the new guys that will keep this going. Hope you like the Fordbarn and stick with us.

I remember I was 21 in 1968, but I don't know how old I am now. I had it figured out once, but then it kept changing.

Birth certificate shows I am 62 but looking out of these eyes the world looks the same as it always has. It's not the years, its the mileage!

68 in October. The mind is ok so far, but the body is showing the wear and tear. Some of which was likely too much youthful enthusiasm!
