97 Spec Boxster = 16
99 996 = 14
88 944 Turbo = 26
02 325i (wife's) = 12
01 325i (son's) = 13

Total = 81 years

Generally, I have little interest in owning a brand new or newer car. In fact, each one I buy is older than the previous one.

I'm still kinda new here, and young at heart anyway. What does that mean? You'll just have to picture the emoticon covered in turnips as I don't see one.
