I'm 65. These numbers are going to be skewed due to younger people being computer literate and as the age increases the litteracy goes down. So there are going to be many that won't be responding.

I hope this does not skew the average computation, but I am 127 years old.

73.... if I remember right......
First Model A in 1974 after wanting one for 20 years but it was too far gone and I was getting moved around on the job too much so it had to go down the road. Next one was 27 years later, in 2001. Currently have a 31 Deluxe Coupe and 31 Huckster-to-be.

Going on 67.

If I had known I was going to live this long, I would've taken better care of myself.

I just turned 76 and have owned or restored over 20 Model A's and still have my 29 Special coupe since 1980 and the 30 roadster since 2005. Just finishing a 29 Town sedan for someone else and starting a 30 pickup restoration also for someone else. Always loved Model A's since I saw my first phaeton when I was 12. These cars keep you young.

I am almost 21 and have been collecting and working on cars for about 4 years now. I just purchased my 1930 Ford Model A Murray Bodied Town Sedan. My great grandfather collected Ford Model T's as well as Ford Model A's, but sold off his collection before I was born. According to my grandmother he had every year and model of the T's and A's in his collection. I think that is where I get my love for old cars. It's a fun hobby and am very glad to finale have a Ford Model A in my collection.

From Denton, Nebraska.

I will respond for my father in law, as he and his wife are cruising the east coast. He is going to be 70 on 1/22/12, and has had his '30 coupe since 1955.
