How old are you?

In a recent discussion about value, baby boomers aging out of the hobby and young people not being able to afford a classic like they used to, it made sense to me to build a quick demographic of the membership here. It's a good microcosm for the hobby in general, so post up!

I'm not an expert, but I play one on the internet.

I'm 70.

I've been an "old car" nut all my life. Now I'm an "old" car nut.

I don't plan on aging out of the hobby any time soon but I've given up on projects and just buy nice cars that don't need more than just maintenance.

I am 30, bought my '65 when I was 13. Life has been crazy the past 5 years and I've probably put about 200 miles on the Mustang in that time total. Looking forward to finishing our house remodel and being able to put my hands to use building a new motor and trans for the Mustang instead of running plumbing and electrical and hanging drywall.

Very cool. We looked at a property up there when we moved back to the area. Ended up down south in Stilwell, KS (just south of OP).
