Thank goodness. I was feeling like the old person on here! I did think being on the forum was like getting invited out by the young ones at work and realising you are the oldest one in the bar

Nice to know there are plenty of the over 50 generation on this forum. The ones over 70 really inspire me. I will always have a Jeep, now I have my first one......

Drink a lot of Budweiser, whiskey and smoke two packs a day and you will be there.
Just kidding, I don't smoke and never have, no drugs, but just maybe a Bud Weiser on occasion. I walk a couple miles a day and work out with the weights, but light weights. The negative is that I am a chocolate Halleck, pies, cakes, cookies and you name it.
The first 30 years of my life I lived on a Farm in NW Indiana and then we moved to hot old Phoenix and have been here ever since.

Well, Old Dogger, you give us all hope.


They say everyone has 3 ages:
  • Your chronological age (how long you have been on the planet)
  • Your physical age (how old your body feels)
  • Your mental age (self explanatory)
That being said,
  • I was born a little over 54 years ago.
  • I'm in pretty good shape so I think my body is in it's late 30's
  • The best part is that when I'm behind the wheel of my Jeep I feel like I'm in my late teens

Not planning on a Caddy, although the CTS-V would be my choice if I were to go there. Love my '13 JKU 'Freedom' and will off road it this summer. Still drive a modded Porsche and a modded MGB, which I autocross. Downhill ski regularly, work out with a trainer, hike, and work long hours to support my type AAAA personality lifestyle. Being 65 is only a number. I refuse to grow up and get old.

As the old saying goes, we are all kids at hart and the only thing that changes is the price of our toys..........
I am with you, when I set in that Wrangler and look out over the hood, well it makes me feel like a kid again!

Young at heart Old Guy!

Hey, bought my first Jeep, a 1965 CJ5 "Tuxedo Park" new in ...wait for it...1965!

Used it a lot Hunting and fishing, since then 23 others! From CJ's, Scramblers, Wagoneers, Cherokees and one Overland Grand Cherokee... on and on. I am poor now from all of those Jeeps but only in $$ the Jeep experience has been fantastic. Latest is a 2012 JKU Sahara traded a 2007 JKU for this (ya I'm old so the 2012 is loaded w/old guy stuff, yup heated seats and leather!) and a 2010 Liberty Limited (my wife's) oh ya did I mention my other vehicle is a FJR1300 MC. Mixed in with those Jeeps were some MG's usta SCCA race those...and a couple GTO's, a couple Harleys and lotsa dirt bikes, cripes no wonder we're always broke!

I am a working crew member and Maritime Artisan of the ship in Plymouth, MA "Mayflower II" , A NRA and MA State firearms instructor, sea kayak instructor and grandfather...other than that I'm retired. Not a lot of tough OffRoad stuff anymore just occasionlly, mostly beach sand driving (especially towing out grand kids!)... but 44K on the MC in the last few years.

Oh Ya by the way, who the hell wants or needs a Caddy anyway! Did I mention I'm 73! Sorry about the pic, shoulda been my JKU it's way younger and better looking!!

Always Think Young and keep on Jeepin'...Wolfdog

Late 40s here. Still feel 21...and I still play CoD pretty much every day...much to my wife's frustration.

First Jeep was when I was 17...and have been behind the wheel of one since. No such thing as too old for a Wrangler in my book...unless you can't physically climb up into it.

58 here bought my first new CJ-5 in 1975. It was in the shop more than it was on the road it only lasted 9 months. But in retrospect I beat the tar out of it. May have been my fault. now I have a 12 2 dr. Sport to tow behind the Motorhome while full time RVing. Out west now heading back to Michigan next month. How do you buy mods on a fixed income?

52 - First Jeep, CJ8, 1984. Traded in a 2008 Saturn Sky Redline last Saturday for MOAB, kept the Cherokee too. Almost bought a Buick; then got into a real ugly divorce. That removed the "buick/caddie" problem; went back to my roots. Never to old to be young.

Bought my 1st new Jeep in 1977.



Still have it. Here is how it looks today.



Had four more since then.

Here is my daily driver now.



I entered this world in the first half of the last century by a bit. I do suffer from the Peter Pan syndrome (look it up).

54 earth years but the mind set of a 28 yoa (garnered enough wisdom to not quite crazy and invinciable as teenager but not ready to be watching tv yet) and the body of a 18yoa lol. I have run 9 marathons fastest 2:48 slowest 3:00:05 at Boston and more 1/2's then I can count, raced roadbikes and mountain bikes and ski and snow shoe during the winter. Put around 500,000 miles on motorcycles and got paid to do it for 10 years. My wife says I am worse than the kids but she is glad I won't grow up. Oh and bought my first Wrangler a 13 jku this past september. Will I keep it forever? nope but I will enjoy for a couple of years until something else piques my interest. Motorcycles are the only mechanical thing that I have never tired of and been riding them since 1972.

I have owned a BSA 650, TRIUMPH 650, Norton 750, Harley 45, HARLEY SPORTSTER 900, AND FINALY A FULL DRESS 74. The sportster 900, I chopped installed a hard tail, springer front forked with a rack and of coarse straight pipes at a 45 degree angle up the rear. Them were the good old days.

63 soon to be 64. Had 4 wheel drives since 1972 -many classics including early Bronco (77) and Scout (69) - But this is my first jeep (2012 JK Rubicon) and quite happy with it. My Cadillac is a 2006 F150 that knows it's own way around the San Juans.

I am 68, bought my first Wrangler last year. A 2012 Sport with the auto (a concession to the wife.) Our 2005 GC will serve as our Caddy until next year when I get my wife her own 2014 Saraha Unlimited. No Caddy in our future.

This is really a great thread!
More than once, I have asked myself what are you doing here, because these Members are probably the age of my Grandsons. Not that there is anything wrong with youth.
But, what I have found out is that there are a lot of old coots like myself here. So we can also talk about life's experiences and that is great!!!

I heard you are old enough to remember when Christ was a Corporal and Moses was a Sergeant.
