Default Just wondering : what's your year of birth ?

I know that your A's are born from 1928-1931.

Wow I thought I was going to be embarrassing young but I was born in 61 and I see that is on the average, but I quit aging at mentally at 12 that is when I still played with Legos and discovered my dad's playboys,.

1963 - prewar interest since I was around 13 - 14, started to subscribe to Hemmings Motor News at 14 after seeing an issue at a friends house whose dad was a collector. I have always preferred prewar cars and euro sports cars to muscle stuff that seems to be most popular with my age group.

FWIW I am less convinced "no" younger people are interested in these cars as my experience recently seems to show otherwise. Cars in general were a mainstream interest when I was a teen; much less so nowadays but certainly not unheard of.

Born 1945 and Model A's and Austin 7's were our normal transport as teenagers.
New Zealand had a policy that made the purchase of new cars difficult and so old cars were well maintained and kept their value (a bit like Cuba but not as bad)
Overseas visitors were known to say it was a bit like stepping back into the past, combined with no Sunday shopping and pubs closing at 6:00, it all seems a little quaint in retrospect

__________________________________________________ _____

Born in 1888.

I was one of Henry Ford's first employees, having been brought over from the shops of John and Horace Dodge, to help lay out the set-up to correctly fit the chassis drive chain components that Dodge built, to the Ford bodies of the FordMobile. After that company failed, I joined Henry in his later Ford Motor Company in 1903. We still used automotive drive units that John and Horace built to power the new Ford.

My memory is beginning to fade now, but as I remember, John and his brother Horace were major stock holders in the new Ford Motor Company, until Henry's shrewd move about 1923 to squeeze them out.

I don't drive much anymore, since my eyes started to go south.

I use public transportation to get to my job as Air Traffic Controller.

LOL. HEH HEH, LOL! Actually I was born in 1903, in West Orange, NJ and I knew Tom Edison. He used me on some of he more difficult experiments. I recall Mr Ford coming around to worship (read annoy) mr Edison and all his patents. Mr Edison would put up with it for a while and then he'd have to take a nap. He'd lay down on the cot and pretend to go to sleep and then open one eye and ask "Is he gone yet?). He wasn't sure what to do with those Fords he was always giving mr Edison. You see West Orange is on the two Orange Mountains and the damn things couldn't get over the hills. He tried selling them, but no one wanted them.

1950 ... the IL plate number that was on my Dad's Ambassador then, is on Jan's Outback today. The actual '50 plate is hanging on the pegboard over the workbench. I've thought about buying a 1950 Ford for it, but the garage is already full of Model A's!

Born in 17 something or maybe 18 something, not sure. Couple centuries ago, I think, at least one, maybe two. Is this going into my fake ID file? Need my SSN now? Out of luck there as still trying to find one which works.

Oh, you're just wondering, I see.

Since I'm procrastinating on other things I should be doing - I put the first 90 valid responses into a spreadsheet to crunch the numbers.

The average birth year is 1952.

The median birth year is 1949.

In all honesty I almost expected it to be older. (based on my perceived makeup of my local Model A club.) The folks my parents age (mid 60s) are almost on the younger end of the spectrum.

Of course there are lies, damn lies, and statistics.

You could speculate on folks in their 50's and 60's being more computer savy than those who are older (as a generalization) and thus have a larger presence on this forum. People in their 60's were in their 30s and very much a part of the business world when the personal computer went mainstream. (early IBM compatible, the Commodore 64, and Apple II come to mind) and have had more exposure to electric typewriters, keyboards and computers in their lifetime. Folks in their 60's are also closer to retirement and have disposable income for an extra car or hobby such as the model A.

People younger than their 60's do not have the disposable income, time, or space to support a car hobby like the model A which is my biggest guess as to the younger generations being underrepresented. Popular interests differ among age groups also. (such as generalizing millennials as being more interested in video gaming and digital social media than automobiles)

Baby boomers are next in line to inherit these cars from those that drove them when they were relatively new in their youth. (the greatest generation) and the numbers of the greatest generation are sadly dwindling faster every day.

Of course you can run around all day and infer things from these numbers and talk about the who and why of this hobby and how its going to change. That dead horse has been beat for a long time so I'll stop. Interesting though!

I'll end my run-on musings by commenting that its cool our hobby promotes communication and friendships that transcend age barriers, life circumstances, experiences and disposition.

Since I was messing around with Excel I had thought to make a histogram of the data for fun. I took a graduate level statistics class in college 13 years ago as a geography grad student and used to be a pro at this stuff. Since I've been flying airplanes for a living since then I've forgotten how to do most of this stuff but after another member made the request to show more detail I decided to give it another shot.

Its interesting how you can make data tell you a completely different story depending on how its portrayed. The mean (average) birth year of the first 90 valid responses is 1952. The median is 1949. (half the responses are higher, and half responses are lower) When I grouped the responses by decade the picture showed a different story. There are a greater number of categories above the 1940's birth decade which supports the mean and median numbers but the 1940's are the most represented by a single group. If that makes any sense?

Again - Lies, Damn Lies, and Statistics. Remember that when listening to politicians and fact checking.

Quite simply that's the average known as the 'mode'. It comes from the French word for fashion.

I'm writing all the names and birth dates down in my journal. Can you guys please include the last 4 numbers to your social security cards so I can complete the requirements to earn my official Boy Scout phishing badge?

June 1949. Pretty much average in most ways, I guess.

My year is 1934. When I had my 1931 Sport coup in 1953 and needed a part I just went to the Ford dealer. Remember buying a new hand brake for $5.00

Good luck doing to a dealer and buying a 22 year old car part now haha seems everything goes obsolete 10 years after it was made.

I was born when I was still quite young, 1940 IIRC.
Got my first A when I was 16, or was it 17? I disremember.

As I said earlier mine is 1944. My Father who wanted the car to restore was born in 1920. He is now 97 and still likes to go for a ride in the A. His first A was a '29 Cabriolet back in High School.
Looks like now you need another decade for your chart!

It's surprising, but also really refreshing and encouraging to see a lot of younger folks in this hobby. I thought everyone was my age (67) or older. We need young blood, because otherwise who's going to be the caretakers for these wonderful old cars when we're gone? (Unless you plan to be around forever, which ain't likely).

1944. Unique year, every time the last two digits of the year are the same, our age "two digits" are the same. 19(55)=11 years old.

Greetings my fellow Barners!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! First I want to apologize for my unexpected absence from the Barn, I didn't have time to say' see ya' later!!!...and the reason was, I will get into that later and it sort of coincides with this thread.
Love this thread, shows how many whippersnappers are on here, even down to 1928 and then there have a been a couple trying to do some bullshitting too.

My birth year is, I think, 1900. It was given to me when I went to enlist. I never ever asked Ma what year I was born in, I just asked her how old I was. I was able to determine 1900 because, I had to leave home rather abruptly, no different from my absence from the Barn. See, there were two farmers that each had daughters and shotguns and I knew that I either had to get out of Texas or join the Army. I joined the Army instead and found myself a bit later with Gen Jack riding across the Rio Grande on a Punitive Action against Poncho Villa for his raid into New Mexico. We crossed the Rio in 1916 and I was 16 at the time and I counted back and ended up at 1900.
Here's a photo of me and Gen Jack crossing the Rio Grande.....I'm on the left and front.


It was a learning experience for me venturing into Mexico, the most important thing I found out was, Mexican fathers didn't carry shotguns, they carried machetes!!!! I'm glad the Great War came along when it did, we were recalled and Gen Jack and myself headed to France.

Now to get to the reason I departed when I did. I received a warning notice for recall from our new CinC and I immediately started preparing my gear (kit) in the british Army for my departure sometime in May and I'm rejoining my regiment and we're heading back to the......Mexican border on patrol. Got my old saddle down from the attic, dug out my ole uniform, sewed up some moth holes and put them in the cleaners. I found out that a luggage rack on a Model A Ford is not always a luggage rack but more a baggage and saddle rack too.

Was that before or after you were selling Grit newspapers ? I get a little confused at times, but I just blame it on my wife !! 1959

August 2, 1928 (88 YOA). My first Model A was a 1928 Roadster purchased from a neighbor in Modesto, CA in 1941, paid $50.00 for it. Painted it Powder Blue and drove it until 1944 when Cars were still hard to get, the man paid me $500.00 for it. Went in the Navy in February 1946. Did not own another A until 1961 when I bought a 1931 Deluxe Coupe while living in Sacramento, CA , after Restoration joined the Capitol A's and MAFCA in 1962.

August 1945. Got my first A, a 1931 Sport Coupe, in 1961. There has not been a day of my life since then that I haven't owned an A. Current project is an Early 1930 AA Open Cab Express.

If he's still this side of the soil, I'm sure he'd like to re-live old memories like I do..........

Now.....coincidence or small world, whichever. My grandfather was in the 1st Illinois in the Great War also. He was Quartermaster of his company but I don't know what company. I could find out though.

Do you know what unit he was in during the Punitive Expedition?

1971, in Dallas, Texas. Have since then lived in Pennsylvania, France, England, Finland, California, and now Denmark & Finland.

Very nice to see the wide range of ages. Makes me think the idea 'Model A folks are on their way out' is pure-myth.
