I'm 62, retired at 57.
Worked for the phone company 35 years, when I retired I was working in Outside Plant Engineering, a group that designs building everything that ties your phone lines back to the central office. I designed fibre optic jobs the last 15 years there.
My wife also worked for the phone company. We retired, moved away from the Vancouver BC area and are enjoying the cariboo region of BC.

I'm an avid fly fisher, we do a lotta camping and fishing and I've just bought a 69 SS, rekindling a passion for cars I've had for years.

I just turned 51 and plan to retire within the next 11 months. I have been writing software since age 14 and still enjoy it. Cars and computers are two of the many hobbies that I enjoy. Time is precious and I wan't more time for fun stuff :)

In no particular order here are pics of 3 past cars. A '67 big block, '78 Silver Anniversary, and a '65 Olds Dynamic 88 with a 69 455 Toronado engine. One of my favorite cars, which I don't have a picture of was my first car, a '62 Mercury Meteor with a 289-225 out of a 65 Fairlane.

Brew smells WAY better than burnt ATF!

Hey, I'm coming up on 60, and will never have enough money to retire to the style I would love to be accustomed to! In all candor, I could never see myself retiring.

Today, my job is to sell more covered calls on CAR for clients. One day, I guess I'll only be doing for my own account. Or not. I like my job a ton. I also teach PT at the local state school for health insurance, and the joy of being around youngins'. I am a vampire apparently. ;) Again, I could teach finance until my brain shits to bed or my heart stops. I hope the later and never the former.

Scary thought.2/3 of us will lose our marbles before our heart stops. Not to be working here today, BUT PLEASE ensure you have a DURABLE POWER OF ATTORNEY with some one you trust as agent before it happens.

I'm 32 (but have aged in the past year as if I served as president for a term or 2 haha due to both the state of the world as well as my own personal reasons) haha Loved cars since I could collect them in a shoebox and send them down a track to do loop-d-loops. I've always modified things regardless of what they were, fixing things that weren't broken, just seeing what made things tick etc.

Been through the Honda phase, then moved onto German (still have one) and then back to Japanese. I've always preferred sedans, never became a fan of AWD and would agree with the statement "theres no replacement for displacement." Currently daily my IS-F and have my c63 as a side project. Both from 2008 and both naturally aspirated. A car I will own someday because its been a goal since I was a kid is the first generation NSX. I will be a father soon and since the wife is requesting an SUV it might be a good excuse for a Macan... but digress...

I recently purchased a 'project' Chevelle and am here to learn as much as possible while restoring it before gifting it to my father (more or that in my introduction post in that section of the forum)

71, retired mason, brick mostly, navy veteran, watercolor sporting artist. Married and 1 son in college (still). TC is the best forum around and I am glad to see so many young enthusiasts. I've learned a ton here and hope to continue. I have made great connections here as well. Usually the first place I visit when I turn on the black box. Glad everyone is so civil to each other. Rare these days. I even came around to the new site format which is hard for an old guy.
Tracked my '66 all the way back 8 owners to the original dealership and even got the paperwork to boot. They all want it back-of course! I never want to say, "I regret selling it".
Best, Boyd
