Yeah sorry Edgar (and you younger guys) I think I had too much eggnog last night. Barely remember posting. Yes it was much easier back in the day. Gasoline/insurance was way cheaper.

I'm slowly building my car future though, I already have my motorcycle, got my gas saver in the Focus, after this I'll have my muscle car

Suprise here I am over 60.. Who would have thought..
So i did not vote in the poll.
Trust me there is a REALLY BIG DIFFERENCE between 33, 43, 53 and 63 years old.

At 33 most still think like 20somethings anyway..
By 43 reality has set in.. a few minor physical issues start
At 53 you know you are mortal..Your kids are having kids.. One last fling at life happens
Then once in 60's ..Well it was good. I can float on what i did (or not)
Ain't life grand.. LOOK at those silly kids.. (the 30 year olds...)
Elizabeth, your post reminded me of this hilarious bit:
