OK, I joked about it, but there have been alot of references in various threads about "older gentlemen" so I figured we need to identify ourselves.

Also, some would say that this is our mid life crisis car, and maybe it's true because I feel like a 16 year old when I drive it.

I know a bunch of us are AARP eligible, so go ahead and admit it here.

I'm into my sixth decade, so I'm not young, but according to the calendar, I'm not old either. Now, when it comes to wear and tear, I'm kinda like a Jeep 4X4 with weeds stickin' out of the bumper and an odometer that broke in '87.

I too have returned to my youth with this car. What a blast! In my sixty first year and still feeling more like my twenties.:)

I tried to return to My Youth, but it moved and left no forwarding address. Was only able to find Slightly Younger Self, which, like me, doesn't move quite as nimbly as I recollect of My Youth. Slightly Younger Self still grins like a drunken baboon when I let him drive, though!

You know you're old when you estimate it will take 2 hours to do something on your car, and it takes 8. And you're sore for 4 days, when before you wouldn't even feel it. You know you're old when you need a step stool to help you get up after poking your head underneath the car. You know you're old when your cheater bar gets longer every few years. You know you're old when you know what a cheater bar is. You know you're old when you remember tuning dual carbs with a length of hose inserted into the carb, with the other end inserted into your ear, or if you've ever tuned or rebuilt a carb. Or what a dizzy looks like. You know you're old when you use a foam pad for your knees to help you work on your car.

upper 40's here, went from 2 wheeled touring/ twisty slaying to the fiesta ST. I thought I would miss the motorcycle, not at all given the cornering ability of the ST right off the showroom floor. Makes the 10 hour commute from FL to NC easier as well.

Turn 60 in 3 weeks. BTW, my son's band has a song called Crazy Prius Driver that would apply to us....

One lyric is " you drive a Prius to compensate for your enormously huge pen**..."

I don't understand all the memory questions to know that you are old.

Don't you know that memory is the second thing to go.

Yeah, my psychologist co-worker says if you remember that you forgot something, that is not a memory issue, it's a laziness issue.
Tue memory loss is if you don't know you forgot something...

Like, "I can't remember where I put my keys" is not a memory issue.....
