    75, but I've never felt old as I passed the markers my younger self felt would signify old. I can't do the bull work that I used to be able to do, but I know how to do so many more things.

    I am 70. Still felt like a young man into my 50's. Since about 58 the "old" factor has set in, lol. I think smoking cigarettes, painting cars, and a lot of whiskey until about 20 yrs ago, have taken their toll on my health.

    Sneaking up on 73, don't feel a day over 83, still young at heart, still putzin in garage some. I recently made a new friend, a kid 49, total rooky, advised him with some knowledge, basic setups, etc. He got me out to a sprint car race, a new class up here, very limited engine class/rules to keep $$$ down, it surely has me daydreaming of the old days, one more summer ? one last blast ? played racer for 21 years, retired at 43, not dead yet. Maybe I'll go take a nap and the thought will go away and the reality that advisor is my role now. LOL

  24. The thing is to hang out with Younger guy's. that way when you
    get older they are younger & still kicking & you will still have Friends.
    I have a lot of Friends that I know by their Car's & not there names
    They used to hang out at my Shop in the early 70's
    and they were all younger than me
    so I am 86 and still kicking

    Just my 3.5 cents

    Someone interviewed Clint Eastwood who is in his 80s and ask him how he is so active at his age "I don't let the old man in".
    Think about it.
