    I'm 29 and got my first vintage tin at 18, a 1961 Ford 100E. Learned to drive in it and slowly modified it as I could afford the insurance. Wrote it off, upgraded to the 1967 model which I still have today, then last year moved onto something a bit older, a 1954 Ford Pop. Restored that and built a hot banger for it and use that as my daily. That's the only 3 cars I've ever owned ;)

    The car club I'm currently in is almost entirely comprised of 30 or younger, course the few guys that are over 30 are the more competent builders.

    turned 25 on Friday, I dont own anything older then my 92 buick GS winter car but I am buying both of my dads bel airs in the spring (both 62's 4 doors, 235 stovebolts and all iron powerglides. One is nice and will stay stock the other one is a parts car/project that turned into a parts car actually after my dad found the one pictured below. This parts car has 3 goals. low/loud/fast (well atleast 350hp). Probably 327 and I would like to do a 3 on the tree conversion or a 4 speed manual floor shifter.

    Granted I would like something older but I learned how to drive in the bel air so i am going to keep them in the family.

    Here is the nice one.

    I'm 29, soon to be 30. I started building my '46 Studebaker at 13 and had it roadworthy at 19. I have owned/modified half a dozen AMC cars in college and just built my '29 A RPU last year in my kitchen after work. I have had 20 cars and 5 trailers up to this point. I like to keep about 5 cars on the road at one time so I always have something to drive to work even if the other four are broke down (which was the case two weeks ago).

    I can vouch for terrarodder being a big kid. Went for a spin around the block with him a while back and he definitely wasn't afraid to gas on it!
