I got the same thing from my wife after she saw this....but she said it already is me. ;) even though I'm only 50. I still have, and drive, my high school car from 1985...and it was already old when I bought it (a 1954 Ford tudor).
1924 Touring

I can beat that. I still drive my first car, a 1910 T touring. I am 87 and bought my car when I was 14 in 1946. Sept.28, 1946. PAID $125. I WILL POST PICKS.

I'd like to see some "then-and-now" pictures!

Wait, wasn't 125 a lot for a 36 year old car back then? (before my time)

1946 was just after world war II brand new cars were selling at a premium and whatever used cars were also selling for high prices, even model T's.
