I'm 49 but bought the car when I was 41, My midlife crisis. I didn't want a divorce ( love my wife way to much) and there is no way I wanted a 21 year old, at least not for more than 2 hours or so.
I was in the middle of recurrent training on my aircraft ( we have to go to training every 6 months) and had a feeling I needed to go by the dealer, and there she was. The 107 that I always wanted since I was a senior in High School.
I tend to find and keep all those things I fell in love with when I was in High School. My wife, My job ( flying), My car. Well not everthing, the long hair and bell bottom jeans are gone!!!!!!!. So are the polyester clothes. I've just kept the things that really matter.
