Okay Mr Roadster, number 28 you take first prize today. And a special commendation goes to DKS, number 27

I believe that Barnstuf # 44 holds that honor, being older than ANY Model A

I turn the big seven - 0 in a few days. Not sure I'm pleased to be that old but on the other hand, I wouldn't have it any other way.

I'm 86 and hoping to drive my 1930 Town Sedan on a return trip for the length on NZ next year....trying to regain my feet after working underneath the car takes a fair bit of effort but, needs must.
Summer has arrived here now, 20 deg this morning,so looking forward to going for a drive today to test my new floor mat ! Petrol now $2.23 a litre !
merry Christmas to all

Smile Re: OK! Let's get personal!

I'm gon'na be 68 in a few months. Been into antique cars, '29 Chevy being the first, since I was 15. In between antiques it was 4-wheel drives,
muscle car and still into Harley's. Just sold my second '29 Chevy and will probably put my '31 deluxe roadster up for sale in the near future. That will leave me with my '29 roadster to finish up repairing. And I'll probably
keep it. I've always wanted a cabriolet or a 400-A. But, time is probably going to run out before that happens.....

I'm 59 years old.

It looks like folks in their 70's are the majority.

I will be 72 next month.

I am currently installing a factory 4 way power seat, that will be replacing a factory 2 way power seat. Keeps me busy and I love it. It is the perfect hobby to keep you alert, sharp and flexible.
