    No such thing as being too old for a T/A - it's like a girl being too pretty or having too much money... just isn't possible.

    Best quote in this thread.

    Never too old. I've had a fast car as a daily driver since 1985, I ain't gonna ever not have one. How's that for some english?

    Some people give me a little sh!t, until I remind them about that^^^.

    I will probably still be burning rubber until I can't drive anymore, then I'll ask someone to give me a ride in my 35 year old Trans Am! Probably be all BS electric cars then, mandated by the government and environmentalists.
