What about the youngest as well would be interesting to know. Not to make y'all feel older.

32

77 and still working in the shop. Will keep going as long as I can. I lift weights regularly and think this helps a lot, keeping active.

Getting ready to turn 76 and I'm 6 customer chassis behind plus the T5 conversion kit and 409 to FH water pump kits keep me out of trouble.

Got up Sunday morning feeling like I could still do it all. 76 is only a number so they say. Shoveled the damn snow for at least 4 hours and came in wimpering to my honey! Sympathy helps. Hands hurt like hell! Fell asleep in my chair for an hour, woke up and took an ibuprofen and went to bed. Monday morning the sun came out and I am feeling like I can do it all again. So many of my old buddies are feeling no pain anymore so I feel blessed even when hurting a bit.
