Happy Birthday and MANY more. I am a month away from 77 and still in relatively good health and enjoy driving my 29 Roadster. Let's hope we ALL see another year on the calendar. I also enjoy bluegrass music and Norman Adams who has promoted festivals for many years lives in Dahlonega. Keep up the spirit!!

Happy B-day. I have a little less than a year and a half to go, and my slogan will be "75 and still alive!" Many more to you.

Happy birthday. Keep on driving that A. I am also 75 and my time with my 1929 A on sunny days is truly a highlight. Didn't get mine until I was 71. Should have done it 30 years ago.

Happy Birthday!

I’ll be 74 in two months. Having trouble getting in our 29 Sport Coupe, but once installed everything is fine. Just makes my day going for a short ride.

62 years of memories every time I go out.

I hope we all get to see these old girls make it to 100.

Enjoy.

Happy Birthday! I am less than a year behind you. Still walking, but keep a cane handy. Drove the 51 coupe yesterday and the 29 cabriolet last week we gotta keep movin’. Chaotic year, but we are still here.

I'm in the "Three quarters of a century club" too (76 in july) My aches and pains are growing, the time I can work is getting shorter! I can't imagine why? That's why I listed my Town Sedan, I know I'll never finish it. Could it be some of that cheap beer I drank when I was younger? Maybe it was all the cigarettes I inhaled. We all feel guilty about our younger lives and the things we did! Oh if only---------! The truth is we were just like everyone else and we weren't (most of us anyway) so bad. Age can be a pretty nice thing at times. My hearing is, uhh, we'll' just say "Not so good" anymore. I've already had the operation for cataracts, best thing I ever did! My left knee is giving me a lot of trouble. I watched my Dr stick a rather large needle in it and draw off about a half a cup of clear water out of it. I've got a cyst on my private parts. And low back pain from my old scoliosis operation. God, there's a lot of pain sometimes! But I still can do at least a half a day's work! I'm finishing up one of the apartments in my three family. Somehow,This is new, I always thank God for a new day each morning. I never was religious but I've to think about just how precious and tenous life is. Happy Birthday!
