Kube, I just put you at 73 as my head hurt figuring coded ages. This may be wrong but be not offended as your knowledge puts you past 100. Here's the numbers so far.


89 x2
88 x1
87 x3
86 x3
85 x2
84 x4
83 x5
82 x5
80 x1
79 x3
78 x5
77 x7
76 x8
75 x4
74 x5
73 x11
72 x5
71 x2
70 x5
69 x1
68 x1
67 x1
65 x4
63 x2
62 x2
61 x1
60 x2
55 x1
54 x1
50 x1
32 x1

7381 divided by 99 ppl = 74.5yr old average

To date as of post #120
Current oldest member: 89
Average member age: 74


Don't forget, age is only a number. Its all about your state of mind, until the body speaks up louder.

That would make her 94.
Apparently her math sucked

I'll help bump the average back up. 81 plus and my first car was a '32 Ford (surprise, surprise) Model B standard coupe for $50. It was comparable to the one on another recent thread herein, only in more conventional colors.

Well guess I will add a bit to the lower area I'm 68. My first car was actually a truck 1950 F-1 panel V-8 of course cost me 25 dollars. The truck is long gone but I still have that flathead V-8 . Gonna put it in my 32 pickup one day.
