    Old gal here.... :D Forteeee2 Eww!

    My husband & I worked on building a couple jeeps over the years. Got rid of everything this past spring.
    We have a corvette that isn't really a project. We drive it from time to time when the weather is good. We don't race it or anything like that. It's an old-geezer cruiser mobile. :D

    Seems all we do here lately, is working on the house.....and even then, I don't feel like doing that either.

    Is it me.... or ... the older you get the less extra time there is yet you can't figure out where it goes and what you've accomplished? The more stuff you get done, the more work you find that needs done and the To-do list never stops!

    I'm going to be 47 in exactly one month from today. I've also always been a gear head. Raced Moto-X, Shifter Karts, and now just ride my street bike. Love to work on the truck, but don't have time like I did when I was younger.

    I'm 25 in my brain, feel like 65, stuck in a 46 year old body.....:D

    55 now....and have always enjoyed a "project", but am finding less time to do them. I have done a couple of mods to my truck, and have more I want to do. This forum is really a great place to find things to make the truck just a little more interesting.

    This is my first new vehicle since I bought a Toyota long bed pick up in 1981! Have always driven "gently used" vehicles since then. I love my new truck, but there always seems to be something that I wish it had........

    Yeah, I can relate to that. Women always have lists. And even if you're not aware of that list, she ALWAYS has a list in her mind. If you thought the honey-due list was bad....she's got twice as many things roaring around in her head than what's on the honey-do list. It's hard to relax and feel 'accomplished' if you can't get those things out of your mind. :rolleyes:
    Atleast, that's how it is in my brain. :rolleyes:
