Default Fordbarn Average Age

I read in the latest V-8 Times magazine that the average age of its members was 74. I would have never guessed that. I started a thread on the V-8 Forum asking their ages and someone suggested that I start a thread here and the A Forum.

It seems we collect the cars we grew up with and remember them as everyday transportation vehicles. I am 74 years old and remember the Model A's being used as such. I have both a Model A, a Flathead V-8 and at one time half interest in a model T.

It would be an interesting comparison between the three forums.

If you care to participate please post your age.
