Default How old are you?

Based on the shocking number of responses on my other thread about the age of C2 drivers, some of the guys were asking for a poll to capture the entire demographics of the C2 forum....so here it is.

Haha....Some of the other forums I'm on have an emoji with a smiley face poking a bear with a stick....unfortunately I couldn't find it here. The wealth of knowledge of that last group is immeasurable.

Lol. I think I prefer the 35-50 so that I am not in the Mark bracket.

Why does owning a car matter. You should be asking if they like them or not and looking to own one someday when they can afford one.

Sorry, I can't answer your poll. There is not a box that is anywhere near my age!

Too late, Sparky! You can take some solace in knowing you are a bracket rookie.

I am interested in this 'age' thing due to my theory that I have about the popularity and value of cars being directly tied to the age the owner was when he first got his driver's license in relationship to the age of the cars. E.g. a boy that got his license at 16, generally likes the cars built in that year or within a plus or minus 10 year window of his driving birthdate.

Example: I got my license in 1964, and have owned now classic Chevys from 1955 to 1971 mostly as daily drivers but now classics. The other caveat is they were primarily all V8s or converted to a V8. It is a hot rodder's reward for scratching out a living.

However, I am also interested in the value of the cars of this era to age as I believe the decline in value of classic cars is tied to the age of the owners. It seems the tri-five cars are on a decline, as most hot rodders from that driver's birthdate era are gone or unable to enjoy the cars anymore and the 50+ year old cars are not really suitable for today's standards of safety, comfort, economy, or even horsepower per cu. in. Thus the rise of the restomods v.s. the value of the original cars. Of course there are exceptions to every rule.
