Vegas Fahrenheit asked this question today, so let's find out. Who is the oldest member of MFG? If you're older than the most recent post, post your age and any other comments you think are relative. Since I'm starting this thread, not many people will get to post, becuase I am...

47

Married for over 20 years. Two preschoolers. Always wanted a VW, but this is my first.

Just turned 37 so [email protected] got me beat.

p.s. Vegas changed a lot in a year and a half. Trump Tower, 2nd Wynn tower going up, Playboy tower done and the Hooters Hotel.. ah that was nice. Vegas Fahrenheit & TOE live out here.. i used to and im already homesick. Gotta love Vegas. O0

I'll be 54 in a week or so.

Back in the 80's my wife owned a 68 or 69
Beetle. A lot of fun, but it was best (charitably) described
as primitive. :)

I've got a buddy that just bought a new GTI last month.
Sliver, with the 6MT.

He'll be 79 next week. O0

Once, when I wasn't in my car, I saw another Tornado Red. I was so excited! I told my friend to speed up and get next to him. I turns out it was a older man with gray hairs and slightly balding. I don't know how old he was. His skin wasn't very "wrinkly" but I'd say about 57 or so.

PS- I'm only 19.... so i'm FAR from being the oldest.

???...I pose this question...Is age really relavent when you have all that torque gruntin'away from a dig...and the turbo spoolin' up...w/the 'suck/swoosh' coming from your P-flo..as the numbers on the speedo go higher and the grin on your face makes your cheeks hurt from being permanent? I'm just 35, but I feel like I'm 18 again even when my 11 yr. old son is sittin' in the passenger seat saying.."Dad, ...WHOA...TRIPLE DIGITS?!? You should SO go smoke somebody!" ^-^ So the fountain of youth could be seen as owning a V-Dub and watchin' those little white lines on the highway turn into a blurrrrr.... 8)

Hmmm, I've still got all my hair, and no "wrinkly" skin.
I'm guessing this guy musta been 95 or so. :)

You're only 19?

I've got jeans older than that.
Not that I still fit in them or anything. [fish]

I can only hope my 10 y/o becomes a gearhead and a Vdubber. It's also funny when he asks, "Hey Dad- can we take that ricer over there?" [fish]

Geezer racing crew rules:

Rule #1: Never put an AARP sticker on your GTI.

(My first vehicle I paid 4,000 for brand new.

Thanks for the advice. My body may be 57 but my brain thinks I'm still in my twenties. I haven't joined that group of old bastards and prolly won't. I do however belong to AAA in case my other car (a '99 Isuzu Trooper with 65K) needs a tow job, or if one of my friends' cars goes tits up.

66 last month. Still have all my hair, most of my teeth, four grandchildren and the first new car I ever bought (in 1966). As Dylan says "I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now!" :)

Redshift, you are the same age as my dad....cool!!! My dad is visiting me from Belgium next month - he is going to love my new ride, I am 100 % sure.
When I was a kid, his first car was the fist european styled Ford Escort, and he raced that thing (we had it for 12 years) and it was orange too, just like Fahrenheit.

The car in the pic looks just like our old car :'( memories.....

BTW- Wasn't advice (just given you a bad time O0).

My brother is 3 years younger than you, is going on 25 and owns an 06 RS MkV. >:D

No Prob, was being a smartass when I thanked you for the advice about the AARP sticker. ;D
