How to know when you are old

Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

Volvo? Don't you have to smoke a pipe and wear tweed jackets with elbow patches to drive one of those? :LOL2: :LOL2:

PS: I was literally talking to my brother-in-law yesterday about the Studebaker Lark and Avanti. The Avanti was an awesome car.

Up until a few years ago the Avanti was being made. I ALWAYS loved that car, and the Lotus Europa my two faves of all time.

Aw, the Lotus Europa was a really cool car. They were pretty common in the town where I went to collage back in the early 70's. I sure don't see them anymore. I wonder how many survived.

Another nice car from that same era was the Volvo 1800 series.

Back to Gillhunter's original post -- I remember when owning a 32" screen with a VCR meant you had arrived! I don't know if it is true or not but my understanding was that was about as big as they could go with the picture tube technology. What I do know is that Sony 31" picture tube TV weighed a ton!

Delorian! All I know about Deloreans is the flux capacitor kicks in at 88 mph which causes temporal displacement. That is according to Dr Emmett "Doc" Brown, of course. Now, how old am I. Haha

Looking at that picture I'd say about 96, LOL. Gonna guess about my age, so nearing the 60-65 range.
