Default What age group???

Every day when I review your threads and reponses I wonder just what is the average age of the guys/girls that belong and use this forum. Has it ever been determined? Just curious, thats all. And oh, my speedometer will hit 70 this year. Thanks.

The way I do the math, I am 49 and 361/365ths.
My Model A experience started when my Dad bought a '31 Pick-Up when I was about 14. I found a funny looking gear in a box of miscellaneous parts and I felt the desire to find out where it went. Turns out it was the speedometer drive gear. Still have the Pick-up, the rear-end is currently in my Phaeton and that speedo drive gear still isn't working.

I'm 57. Was bitten by the Model A bug when my uncle taught me how to drive when I was 13 or so in a cutdown AA truck.

I am 65. Started with the model A when I was 13, and my father and I restored a town sedan. My brother has that car now, along with a roadster and a pickup and 3 doodlebugs. My other brother has a doodlebug, as he cant see well enough to get a license. I have had a few dozen model A's, and now just have the tudor I bought in 1975. It brought my sons home from the hospital when they were born. (try that today with all the child protection laws) I threw a party for the car when it turned 80 years old. I have a lot of cars, so it does not get out as much as it used to, but is still on the road regularly. I started restoring cars full time in 1988, and have restored many model A's for customers. More info on my web site.

31 here... and I have a 31 coupe! I caught the bug (and the car) from my Grandad. I'm a pilot now but grew up spending time on the family farm and always loved wrenching on anything with a motor and spending time outdoors. I'm certainly having a lot of fun with the hobby and enjoying all the people I'm meeting in my local club. It makes the city life a lot more tolerable when you find a good church and other good groups (I.E. the local A club) to be a part of. Amazing how a feeling of "community" can draw people together and have a good time!
