I'll turn 50 in August and this is my second Jeep I've owned. I drove my first one in the Marine Corps in 1982 as a duty vehicle and have loved them ever since. I've had people ask me why I bought a 2013 with a 6 speed because it will be hard for me to shift the older I get. If I ever get to the point I can't depress a clutch pedal I probably shouldn't be driving anything.

I own two Harley Davidson's that my neighbors hate ( I hate my neighbors too so were even). I know my pipes are loud and I wouldn't want them any other way. As they say "if it's too loud your too old".

Hey a place where I finally feel at home turned 50 last summer/ so close to 51.....been driving Jeeps since the early '80s.....we currently have two and may be picking up a project TJ before to long....also have a '13 Chrysler 300 just because we liked the power -train so well in the wife's JK...... and sometimes the Jeep doesn't work for what is going on (road trip vehicle I thought, but she likes the JK more than the 300 even for road trips) ....Question: How many of you FEEL like you can keep up with most of these kids running around here...aka, "I only feel about 20-25 years old"?

I wanted to build one for years, now retired and doing it. I'm 57 and decided if not now then when. Started out with stock 2012 wrangler sport and adding and changing a few things. I got mostly what I wanted. We love going where others only dream about going. We have a Suburban that will have to be our caddy for now.

Part of the demographic and am happy to own a Jeep. Why on Earth would I want a Cadillac? They were built for the World War II generation who wanted bench seats ten feet wide, tons of chrome, power accessories that broke after the warranty ran out, and were as big as a yacht. The new Cadillacs have Euro sporting aspirations, but if I wanted that I would buy a BMW M3 or an AMG C class Mercedes. I don't want a flashy rebadged Tahoe either.

Cadillac can safely count me out as an owner. I honestly think they'll go the way of Oldsmobile, Pontiac, and Hummer. Their target market is literally dying off. Jeep just keeps soldiering on.

Sorry but the Caddi V Sport Wagon is the coolest car on the planet and will blow the doors off those euros on any kind of track...
