28 thats about it....I wish I had a Hot Rod.
you know what they say about wishing......
I know mofo...
i'm 23, my first vehicle was a '50 chevy pickup that i just sold 2 years ago,i ha it since i was 7. My second car was a '50 desoto moredoor that i drove to my first year of high school until i traded it for a '50 shoebox. I then traded the shoebox for a '64 impala. I sold ought and traded a few more over the years. I now have a '57 chev. hardtop and a '53 chev moredoor that split Daily duties. I also had some 70' and 80's stuff too but they never stick around long.
I'm 28, I currently have a 57 chevy convertible, 57 chevy 150 2dr, 29 model a roadster, 63 nova ss, 48 chevy buisness coupe, an O/T vw beetle, a 57 chevy 4dr, and a few other o/t cars. I have had several more 57 chevys a 62, 46 fleetline, 51 chevy 1/2 ton pickup, a few monte carlo ss', 68, 67, 66 chevy trucks, and several more that weren't drivers.

I am 23 and have a 1930 Ford Model A business coupe mild resto.
26 as of this week , currently no rod in my possession , been too hung up on my cycle
building a 73 ironhead , after thats finished hopefully in time for the round up , then ill be starting my hunt for a 49 - 52 pickup to torture , one at a time i suppose , couldn't see myself ever getting into the import scene theres just something about it that just doesn't seem right .... i think mabye its the attitude allot of them kids that spend more time playing with computers and diagnostic machines than actually wrenching
but im not talking trash i have friends that do both and wrench the hell outta those imports but they also turn around and work on some old school stuff as well always exceptions to the rule's i suppose
19 with a '51 chevy that I drive daily when I'm home (I got to school 3 hours away, the car would make it, but I can't afford gas coming and going every other weekend). I'm currently working on little quirks, interior door handles etc. I'm getting ready to upgrade the fuel delivery system on the straight six to get a little more umph out of the old stovebolt.
I'm 17 I have a 51 F-1 with a 350/350 combo in it. Just need to get the brakes redone. I also have a 48 Chevy truck that I will build when I finish the 51
