Yes, I know it's hard to believe, but I am in the 50's club as well (have been for 2 years actually). The average will shoot up if Titan dares to declare his real age!

how old is the typical Z3 driver

Post by Ci » Fri 14 May, 2010 17:43

Being a woman I don't have to own up but I am nearly the oldest! Had two Zs, first one for 10 years and this one for a year. Love driving topless (as I did along the coast road in Dorset yesterday), that's what it's all about. Have been topless since 1969, always had a soft top...and many boring jobs to pay for 'em. :wink:

What do you mean Roy?
You know I'm as much 42 as whiteminks is 21

My real age is as old as my tongue, and slightly older than my teeth :P
In reality I'm between Brently and PhilB after the ageing effect of radial parking at Newby last week :shock:

I'm confused - I think I'm 52 but when I drive my Zed I feel 21 8-)

Had the Zed 2 years now.

My wife loves the Zed - "It's like sitting outside in an ever changing garden" :lol:

This question has been posted many times so if you go through the search and add another year to all the answers there etc you have even more ages. You might even go back far enough to add 5 or 6 years to all the replies. :)
