I'll be 44 later this month. My Amazon will be 50 next April.

Growing old is compulsory... growing up ain't!

Just turned 25 yesterday,
Purchased my 131 b18 1968 as i'd had enough working on modern cars. Boy is this car a pleasure to work on and drive.

Lets see -

Bought my first Volvo at 22 ('92 244). Bought my first Amazon at 36 ('66 220). Bought my second Amazon at 39 (a better '66 220). Am 40 now. So yes, somewhere in the middle of the age spectrum.

I officially became old in January when I turned 65. I've had my car, a '67 two door, for almost six years and have put over 14k miles on it since taking a year to get it back on the road. Love the thing. It's far from perfect but mechanically it's a pretty good runner! Next will be some body work to keep it looking good..

To calculate the average you add up all the results and divide by the number of results

To calculate the median you find the middle value between the extremes

I get the feeling median is what this thread is really about

35 here. Bought my 121 when I was 26 and it's still not on the road! Although all the rot has been dealt with, just a total lack of time and funds to finish.
