Iím 26 and dyslexic.

Wait...thatís in my mind. I look in the mirror and wonder who the old guy is staring back. Iím just happy to finally be older than my cars, so that must mean 62. A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

Yeah great color and car, thanks. Maybe one day a '66 L72 in Nassau Blue or a '67 427 in Lynndale or Marina Blue with white interior and top.

2015 C2 of Year Finalist

39. I started out with some rough C3s when I was 19 and worked my way up to my first 67 at 23. Sold my last two in 2018 and contemplating buying another or plunging into the actual ďdark sideĒ with air-cooled Porsches.

I'm actually surprised, I didn't think we'd be over double digits.

I am 38- bought my first Ď69 project at 19 and a then a litany of of other cars- mostly Pontiacs and a few Mopars.

Bought my 64 when I was 33. Bought my first aircooled project a year ago.


PS I donít know anyone locally anywhere close to my age with a Sting Ray. For that matter everyone I know around where with an older vehicle is into trucks. Otherwise itís imports from Japan or Germany. Still bright young car folks.

49.5 here, just made the cut

Owned my 65 since 2010, the 66 for 4 years. This forum is great and I realize and appreciate how much wisdom is here concerning these cars.

Count me in, I'm 45, and bought my car in my 20's after being irritated by how bad depreciation was on the 2 new corvettes I had bought one after the other. Theres always a newer, better one coming, but the classics just keep getting better, and more valuable! I am also a big Porsche geek too.

I am not under 50 (54) but my wife bought me a small metal sign which I keep over the light switch in my garage that says, "you are only young once, but you can stay immature indefinitely" (Ogden Nash).
