65+, had Model As since 1958, and still have my first one.

I am actively working to get it back on the road soon. I had to disassemble it years ago due to lack of space, and not wanting to let it get destroyed by being out in the weather. Last summer I realized if I did not get it back together soon, it probably would never be in one piece again. Having the time of my life working on that car.

I am 49. I was probably about 19 when I first took notice of Model A's.
At 26 I purchased my 31 coupe.
Looking back I wish I'd had the resources of this site to reference before buying (heck nobody I knew even had a home computer)
2 chapters into the Judging standards & it occured to me...damn...all this car needs is EVERYTHING.

Since opening an autoglass shop at 30 yrs old I've put my project on hold many times. I fact it's been a series of short, furious, bursts of action, but then always pushed into the corner after a few days as fresh business comes in the door.
I haven't devised a plan yet to finish this car before retirement, but it's on my mind constantly.
Perhaps at 50 I shall hang out a closed sign...keep paying rent...JUST work on the "A"...and run till the bank account is dry
In the meantime...this site has alot of good people who keep the spark alive & we're a lucky bunch!
The car is in front of a body shop where I worked. That was taken right after I bought her!

41..... Having been raised in a Model A family I've grown up around the Model A all my life. Some of my best memories as a kid in the 70's revolve around our 1930 Model A Ford Tudor.
Raising three boys of my own today I hope each of them have great memories of their Dad and the 1930 Model A Tudor the way I do.

65 and had Model A's since 1978. Only problem, can drive only one of them at any given time!!! Real good hobby. Met a lot of great people over the years as a result of having the Model A Fords.

58 and counting!

And, I've been a lover of horseless carriages, Model T's and Model A's all my life... but never had the money to get one of my own, or the time to enjoy driving one... until recently.

I'm 45 but like it says I was born too late. It comes down to where and how you grew up.
