I am 58 and have had my '30 Tudor for a little over a year. I started out with MGB's, and still have them too. I have always liked the British roadsters. I decided that I would like to have a Model A about 20-25 years ago, but never had the money to spend on one until now. I have enjoyed every minute of it. I like to tinker with it, drive it, and show it off.

At a mere 52, I still look forward to a couple more decades with my Model A's.
Dad has a '28 pickup that I used to drive as a kid, and which he used as a spare car. A real rust bucket which he is now disassembling, and which I will no doubt someday inherit in just that condition. Twenty-three or so years ago he bought me a '28 Special Coupe which I have driven and worked on ever since. Just this summer my brother sold me the '31 pickup Dad had bought him at roughly the same time. Now I'm chasing twice the rattles.

53 and have always loved old cars. Got my first ride in a model A when I was 4, bought my first one two years ago and got my second one last April. You could say I'm hooked. I have even dropped all of my hot rod and custom car magazine subscriptions.

43 here.. Started in the hobby when I worked summers and weekends in a model A restoration house while I was in college. I was the resident gopher, yard-ape, parts-monkey and general sandblaster roust-a-bout I got my first 'A' about 4 years ago and have been turning my garage into an "A" rescue shelter since then, taking in all the strays my wife will allow

Loving this hobby, and tour every chance I get.

Almost ready to turn 48 and I've had my A 4 years. I'll have to say I'm surprised at how young many of the respondents have been. I'm considered the kid of our club. I think perhaps the statistics here are skewed by the fact that is in an online survey and computer and internet use drops rapidly in the older age groups.

I'm 31 and inherited my 1931 Coupe from my father, who purchased it as his first car when he was young. When I was born, I was driven home from the hospital in this A.

I'm 71, can you believe I traded my our SSR for our 1928 Phaeton, I've had the best time with the Model A, Joined the Model A Club in Owensboro, Ky. planning a tour to Rough River Lodge for lunch in February, sure hope the weather is right for the Phaeton. We enjoy the car very much....If I can figure how to post a picture of the car, I will.
