Never too old for a jeep...right?

Alright, I'm 42 years old and just bought my first TJ. One of my 40+ year old buddies made a comment that I must think I'm 18 again. It made me wonder just how old most of y'all are. Lets hear it!

Nope. Just a certain realization that you want to enjoy life. That is what I say.
