70 years old. My Model A is 19 years older than me, and still in as good a shape as I am.

Iím 27 and have had my A for 5 years. I was president of my chapter for a year and have been on the board since. Not as active though as I once was.

Makes it tough when the local club does events on weekdays, and the big national events are not friendly to those who work (unless they fly and donít bring an A, I guess).

70. Spending most winter days in the shop finishing a 28 Phaeton. Hopefully a spring debut.
Don't worry about the future of the hobby. Looks like the average age of Model A owners is , say, early to mid 70's today. 10 years from now the average age of Model A owners will still be the same, and so on into the future. Old guys like us like Model A's, along with a few younger guys. I see the trend simply continuing as is.

I'm as old as my tongue and a little older than my teeth.

I'm 57. This is a picture of my Dad and I at the MARC National meet in Indianapolis in 1970. In the second picture, the truck and I are at the MARC National meet in Oshkosh, Wisconsin in 2012.
Dad will be gone 33 years in January, the truck is still here, both are much loved. Thanks Dad.
