52, got my A 1.5 years ago but my Dad had a couple of them in the early-mid '70s so the bug has always been there to one extent or another.

Physically at 58 that's most days, for me.


Mentally it's often 58 going on 18.... Except for when real life interferes.

I am right there with many of you. I am 71 and plan to retire at the end of this month. I purchased my 1st Model A (an AA) in 1972. I hope to drive each of my Model A's when they turn 100!

I will be 65 in a few short weeks... Got my 28 roadster ~25 years and 50K miles ago. My daily driver when there's no "salt" on the roads. Basically a old guy who still gets a big charge out of driving his ratty blue roadster way to fast.

I’m 72, have had our 1929 Sport Coupe for 40 years. Got my first Model A in 1961.

If you have a well maintained, fairly priced Model A there will be a good market for it. Don’t worry, just enjoy it. Enjoy.

I just turned 87. I gave up golf, skiing, running and other such activities but I still enjoy working on my "A". I do however now remove the rear wheel separate from the hub when working in that area.
A 10 mile bicycle ride on a nice day is not out of the question.
I am blessed.
