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 find it hard to believe but I turned 75 last Dec. Hey Paul, did you start the new job yet? Better get a couple of years in so you can retire. Regards, Barry

Just turned 64, two years older than my shoebox. I'm not sure which one of us is in the best shape.

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!!

Hi Bassman/NZ; I did do all that stuff and having seen both sides of that coin I can tell you you're heads up, Craig.

I was 67 last May. 16 seems like yesterday to the mind, but not the body. Paul Selfe.

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.
