    Agree. What form of divine intervention has to occur to make that happen?

    59 years young here. 4 Daughters are married and "off the books". 9 grand children. Life has been good to me.

    My wife and I were talking about my planned retirement at age 60. She said that if I retired I would just annoy her.

    I said "you're probably right". But if I'm going to keep working, I'm going to make it worth while.

    So instead of retiring at age 60, I'm commuting to work a Mustang GT. She refers to it as my girlfriend. I look forward to going to work everyday.

    Life is good.

    I was just thinking that for us "seniors" it's a good thing we get email notifications about the thread or many of us wouldn't remember to come back to it.... :crazy:

    Turned 60 last month. Purchased the 2019 GT premium VB, PP1, A10, B&O, AE, etc. a few weeks prior. Still have the 86 SVO I purchased used in 1989, 30 yrs ago. Loving the sound of the coyote even though the SVO has been worked over! This is the day I picked it up. IMG_2650.JPG

    Thanks! When I bought the 3000 I was reluctant to tell my late father about it; he was a master mechanic--former auto shop teacher and factory service rep for Ford--but when I did he said "If you're going to own a car like that you better learn how to work on it" (Dad was averse to 'foreign cars' at the time). A few years later he calls me and says "There's a '56 in the paper;" thinking it was an early 6-cyl car I told him if it's in good condition the asking was fair and he said "I 'll have a look at it." The next day he calls and says "Well, i bought it; it's a 4-cyl and there's an 'M' on the registration." I asked "Dad, does it have a louvered bonnet (hood), and a small bend in the radiator cross-brace?" He said 'yes,' and I realized it might be one of the original 640 that were modified at the Healey shop. After proving the provenance, we spent 10 years restoring it together (it took so long because Dad had a couple bouts with cancer). Dad died last July, but not before finishing the restoration of the 1919 Seagrave pumper fire engine in the background and donating it back to the local FD:

    As Toby Keith sings in "Don't Let the Old Man In", "How old would you be if you didn't know the day you were born". Age is a state of mind. 71 and I thorouhly enjoy my 2016 GT, 6sp, premium.

    I’m approaching 73 and love my 2015 GT. Bought it new and added custom exhaust and wheels as well as some Steeda rear suspension parts to tame the wheel hop. Having grown up in the muscle car era, I jumped at the chance to buy a Mustang GT once the kids were out of the house and through college.

    2015 Mustang GT premium with premium package,performance package, magneride ,active exhaust with JLT cold air intake (tune required) and E85 tune. Some fast food restaurants consider you a senior at age 55. I passed that Milestone almost 24 years ago.

    Wellll... I was 59 when I bought my '18 GT. I just figured it might be getting near the end for NA V8's with 3 pedals. I've loved every minute of driving it. I DD my 8 mile commute to work with some longer drives on weekends. I also travel a bit, so i'm still under 4000 miles after 8 months. Plan to drive it a good long time.
