I'm Jack Benny's age. Hah! Now that I've got you thinking about that I'm one month away from 63. As my Dad told me, "Son I'm going to live to be a 100 or die trying",

I'm 67. I bought my first old ford when I was 19. It was a '28 AA stakebed. That means it was 1972 and the truck was 44 years old. I had my wife get on her phone calculator and we think that would be the same as buying and driving a 1977 ford pickup today. I'd still take the AA thanks.
