Turned 64 March 8. First car was a 40 Olds coupe, age 10, first ford a 51 two door, age 13. Currently have a 48 Ford short door coupe, several 56 F-100s, and a 64 Fairlane coupe, bought new by my dad in November, 1964, and in which I went to my senior prom in 1965. My 29 year old son has a 70 maverick 2 door which he has installed a 289 in.

I've orbited the Sun 67 times here on earth and coming up on 68 in July. I sometimes feel and act like an 18 year old in a 67 year old body. My wife tells me almost every day that I need to grow up, but I refuse to listen I'm just happy to still be sucking air and driving an old Ford

I am 47 years young.

I am in pretty good shape; I do about 125 push ups and about 80 sit ups (with 15lbs on my chest) each day. Go to the gym three times a week. Feeling pretty good.

Kinda looks like I'm about in the middle of the pack here (born in '51) and starting to feel it.

Retirement looms but I'm in no hurry to wish the time away.

Loving life and in no rush to find out if living beats the alternative - or vice versa!
