I am 50. My 30 Coupe was a gift my Dad when I was 14. I think I will get it out this weekend and teach my daughter to drive it....in a really big empty parking lot.

62 with a mind of a 15 year old.
Took over custody of my A last August, love the car but really get a kick out of the owners of A’s. Salt of the Earth
The Model A’s have been around for 90 years now, they have outlasted all of their original owners. They are older than most of their current owners. They will be around long after we are all gone. Someone will take care of them for the same reason we all do now.

70
I bought my first Model A in 1964 (29 special coupe).
I got married in 1973 and my wife and I bought a 29 Tudor (Agy). It's been in and out of the family, but we own it again.
Also have a 1929 Briggs body pickup that I purchased from a good friend's estate.

Mike,
I did not realize that Briggs built pickup bodies too.
Here is a picture if my pickup and the Briggs tag that was attached to the cowl.

Turned 70 this past July.
Bought my first "A" in 1978. Still have it. Late 1931 Deluxe Tudor. Has potential to be fine points car. Purchased 5 more "A's" after that.


Currently helping one of my grandsons restore an early build (April 1, 1964)
Mustang.
