  I just got back on here a week ago. I was looking at my profile... I joined June 12, 2003... Twenty years ago!!!

Wow! Glad you all are still around... 

  I bought the Corvette when I was 28.... I just turned 65...  Or as I tell people, I bought it when I was young and single and they were cheap...Ha!

Hey, Reid. Nice to see you!

Very true, about being young and single. Much easier to buy stuff when it's just you.

Welcome back!

I'm sad to say that from my point of view 65 isn't that old!😄

I thought we were doing well, having owned our '78 since 1990, but I love stories like yours, buying the car so young and hanging on to it.

Aging is just all perspective.  "The Good Book" mentions the circle of life as "dust to dust".  A few friends of mine, who are older than I, rephrase that as "diapers to diapers".  Not there yet but laps around that bright spot in the sky are piling up and am enjoying the ride!
