Default Fordbarn Average Age

It looks like Bob Johnson has already had a survey with age and I must say a very detailed one. See post #3.

Thanks,
Shadetree

I did that survey already. Results are:
< 20 --- 0 (0%)
20-30 --- 6 (2%)
30-40 --- 10 (4%)
40-50 --- 32 (13%)
50-60 --- 83 (32%)
60-70 --- 93 (36%)
70-80 --- 29 (11%)
Over 80 --- 3 (1%)

Works out to an average of about 55 years old.

Survey results

I'm only 56, I've had a 29 Tudor, 30 Town Sedan, 31 Ccpu, and a 30 Coupe. I can't seem to get enough of them, for some reason. I only have the two 30's left now. I'm going to sell (or trade) the Coupe for another 30-31 Ccpu or Sedan Delivery. Check out my Coupe in my profile if your interested. I'll be listing it later this month or next month, here on the Barn. Keep a look out for it.
