My wife and I are both 70 but we don't age discriminate.

Johns4104, hope to see you at Q. Please look us up.

We've made a special request for good weather for your trip.

25 here.

I think there's one other member younger than me though?

me too, 24.

I've had my 102a3 for about a year but the project is comming along very slowly... I've got building up my career ahead of everything right now.  When I get a more comfy job i'll move forward on the bus.

I'm about 20 yrs older than our bus and have not been rebuilt....yet...although I'll look foreward to some new ss skin (seems useful) and could change out some old handles I've got hanging around...maybe a new windshield sometime................not bad for a 1954 version (only ridden by a little ol lady twice a month or so)

Sometimes the more I think about something the less I think about something.    As soon as I save a little money my bus finds out.                                      Why grab a plane when you can take the bus ?                         If I'm wrong 10% of the time how can the "Queen" be right 100%

When I was 25 I looked 40 so I lost out on the genetic lottery, but I made up for it by marrying my wife who will pass for 30 and she is older than I am by two years. I have had my bus long enough now not to qualify for a yes to your question. Anyone out there over a hundred?

I am 35 and My Bride is 33.  Two girls, 3-1/2 and 1-1/2.  "The wheels on the bus" gets sung a lot in our house!  "Don't let the pigeon drive the bus" gets read a lot in our house!

32 here.  Bought our super betty when I was 30, sold her when I was 30!!!!!.....8 long months of frustration and busted knuckles, but it was a lot of fun, and memories that we'll never forget.  The prices are getting low enough, I feel a new adventure comeing on!!

Ooh Ooh!  I snuck in!  Not 40....  yet.

I have a 3 1/2 year old who's favorite book is "Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!", we "customized" the book with pictures of our bus and her!  Loves it!

I picked up a '70 Silver Eagle just after my 35th birthday in October. It's my 4th bus. It's a sickness, I'm convinced. Smiley

All of my others are skoolies. A '58 Chevy, '63 Chevy, and '64 GMC (tailgating rig for the last 3 years).

Good to see I'm not the only one starting early.
