Just wondering...how old are you?

Post by marco » Fri 09 Dec, 2005 10:17

Just reading through the post about insurance - I'm amazed by how young we are. I always thought that at 26, I was young for a Z driver - but it looks like I'm actually quite old, and there's plenty of 21 and 22 year old whipper snappers about, despite the fact I've never thought it was a boy (or girl) racer's car.

Maybe as it's more likely to be youngish people who use the net, the 60 year old Z drivers are less likely to be on the forum...

Anyway, just for my interest (and in the interest of not doing any work on a Friday) let's work out an average Z driver age How old are you?

I've always bought my toys with cash only, don't like the idea of "owning" something that I haven't earned yet, at least with toys. :) I guess I'll have to adjust that thought a bit when I get around to buying a house... Currently I'm 29 years of age, I was 27 when I bought my first Z3.
