Tough getting old, isn't it?What I did to my Mustang today was I sold it! I have severe arthritis in my back and I have tried for 4 years to deal with the back pain caused by the seat, with no luck. I hated to do it and will miss it but I just can't drive it anymore.
Tough getting old, isn't it?
All my life I was convinced in my youth that a sports car was not a sports car unless it had 8 cylinders with 300+ horsepower, a stick shift. When I reached 65+ clutch pedals became harder on the knees, memory lapses to remember to put in neutral/set the hand brake became a consideration, as well as squeezing into a low, 2-door car in a narrow garage. Well.......perceptions of younger years give way to age-relevant wisdom eventually. Decided to give up my ZX-10R at 65 years old. I miss it, and miss those to-the-limits track days, but I have never once regretted admitting it was time to let it go. I hope you too find peace with your decision to sell the Mustang.
As a friend recently told me, getting old isn't for sissies. Hang in there John.
Not in your guys age range but at 47 Ive put my body through hell. Have a 6 speed mustang gt for good days and an automatic 66 cuda for bad days! Either way I plan to ride till the wheels fall off.71 years young, still driving a manual as I have all my driving life. Knees and memory are fine. Automatics are for pussies.
My old man has a 68 Cuda and 69 Charger, if all goes to plan one day they’ll be mine. What those cars will mean to me is exactly why I’m planning to keep my mustang to one day give it to my kids.Not in your guys age range but at 47 Ive put my body through hell.
