I will be 79 in April. I am thankful that my health is good. I got my 1930 Town Sedan in 2005 and my 1930 deluxified coupe in 2006, both in restored condition. They were both driveable when I got them, and I have done a lot of work on each. I drive them whenever I can, year round. My favorite is the one I am driving at the time.

I'm 48.
Got my first "A" about 18 years ago. (basket case '30 ccpu and still working on it).
Second "A" about 2 years ago. (nice '29 tudor, but needs engine work)
Third and fourth "A" just this past summer.(one nice '30 tudor that needs engine work, other one is a '31 coupe that's totally disassembled but worth the headache.

I'm 54 now, staring 55 in the eyes! Got my 28 sport coupe in 2010 and a 31 slant window in 2011. Sold the slant window last June so I could buy my 31 Victoria. I can't imagine not having an A to drive. It is my therapy for this hectic world.

I'm fifty one and have been in a model a since before I was born my father started restoring in the late 40s and I started handing him wrenches they tell me at two. I have had many A's over the years but my roadster ran for the first time Christmas eve of 1960, and I had to re restore it in the mid 90s after a major accident I will never part with it until my youngest son gets it from me. We had at one time a 28 pheaton brother has now, 12 t touring 29 roadster , 31 slant sedan ,my roadster, 31chevy cabriolet, 41 Chevy two door,numerous mustangs and two Shelby to name a few. I now have only one and that is enough after 40 years.

I'm 68 and going ..., well pretty strong! I bought my first A 3 years ago. I got it cheep in an auction. I found out why it was so cheep! Most part on the car needed rebuilding or replacement! I got seriously tired of reading about other people actually driving their A.s. So I went looking for a running A, found one and I love driving it and the grandkids love riding in the rumble seat.
When I was a kid, we had two AAs for farm trucks and that was my first exposure to them. I remember them sitting in the field with their grill shells sparkling.

I'm 58 and have three 1931 Model A's, 2 Model T's and a bunch of Dodge Brothers from 1920 to 1936 and at least one car from every decade from 1910's to the 2000's. My 40 Ford Tudor we have had since early 1965. I run around with a great bunch of guys and gals we affectionately call the "T-Bums". Life is great!
