I'm 80. Who cares?
All the work I do now meets archival standards.
I put all my memory in the cloud. When I go to retrieve it, it comes back in a fog.
What was the question?

My wife says men get older, but they never grow up! A friend of ours has a t shirt that says "still plays with cars"

70 heading swiftly to 71. Got my first A a little over a year ago. Never realized how much fun I was missing. Frustrating at times but fun

I've never thought of driving a Model A or any of the other old cars as "fun", just nostalgic. I guess when I drove them "back then" they were just transportation and filled a need.

When I was pretty young , driving a model A was a thrill !!! I got my first model A in 1960 . I turn 73 this year and driving the model A is still fun .

Cool thread although i think this topic surfaces every few years. 55. Had a few prewar cars, joined Fordbarn many years ago when we had our 30 tudor. Sold a couple cars off to buy a nice old Packard, sold off the A stuff and of course, got back into an A in 2015. So now I an re-acquiring all the spares... what a hobby! ��

Let's put it this way... A Model A was parked in my head in 1960 when I was 16.. finally a Model A was parked in my garage in 2017... I'm now 75. A long wait but absolutely worth it!!
