33 here.

Doesn't surprise me that it's mostly the younger crowd here. First, the younger crowd is usually more into digging up stuff on the net and feel more free to experiment. The older crowd is usually more like "what the **** are you driving?" or "how did you find that, and how do you even work that computer?". Also, the younger crowd usually has more free time to experiment with things. As you get older, the responsibilites tend to add up. My opinion anyway.

You have a valid point!

...as a 'self-appointed' spokesperson for the "oldest crowd" (one-of-two, so far), I don't buy that stereotyping.

...I say we're just "glued" to our old chariots and afraid the Metamucil will 'kick-in' while we're driving slowly (Mother Natural doesn't simply "call," she screams!) to concentrate on MPG's versus where's the "...closest off-ramp leading to a public restroom" (wink,wink).

37

me too.. I often think the 36-40 group is the last to have a vivid memory of all the changes you went through as adult. The 60s cars were very much on the road for some years into the 70s, even the badly mauled northeast.

see.. in 75, at two years old I remember my first ride, a beetle. My dad had a gigantic plymouth wagon..colassal...all that is long gone.

It seems as though after I turned 30, thinking of age does not matter...vivid memories do, more and more.

The choice for ecomod I could guess was not simply to jump behind the wheel of a FWD transverse machine.. I could guess my age group has a few more thoughts about the whole fiasco...as if older.

...right now, I'm just TIRED.

...later, when I'm done working to make other people rich, I'll still be TIRED, but because it's the "2nd time around" I'll be RE-TIRED.

...or, is RE-TIREMENT when you put a 3rd 'spare' tire on a car after a flat?

It looks like the age distribution is bimodal. The major peak being around 21-30 and the
minor peak being 46-50. My guess is the dip in the middle, 31-45, is due to those being the major child-rearing years and they have a lot less time to spend in the garage.
