    I just remembered I need to call Ford.. It's not about the no sunglass holder it's about the no denture cup holder.;)))

    Early 40's here, and genuinely thought I would be the oldest FiST owner. So glad to see how wrong I was

    Re: Ensure: There is a coffee flavor. And two versions of chocolate. And vanilla. And. . . . Well. Don't ask me how I know.

    I'm over 60 myself and this is to be my LAST new car... most likely my last car purchase period, unless I find a Bug Eye for the right price. I'm saving all the paper work. I have the license plate holders from the dealer stacked on top of the tires and wheels that I took off after less than 100 miles. I'm saving all the tags, service records and keeping complete record of everything including the dates of tire pressure checks and gasoline fills.

    I have a feeling that this car is going to be like the 1964 Lotus Cortina, or the first Shelby Mustangs. They may get faster in later model years, but never purer. I'll turn this one over to my son as a collector car 25 or 30 years from now.

    Another thing.

    I would like to remind all the younger readers of this thread.

    When you get to be our age.
    Never trust a FART.
    It could be more than you bargain for.

    I'm coming up on 29 this year and hanging out with some of the Focus ST guys I felt really old.
    Like,
    "I'm too old for this hooligan sh!t."
    I also have bad joints, have to worry about giving myself kidney stones and have to worry about breaking my hips again. I got my Recaros (partially) for the heated seat option for my back

    man I am too young to be so old already

    You're not old until you can feel the cold fronts moving through when the arthritis weather function kicks in.

    @sumo64c oh, but I DO feel every change in the weather in my bones thanks to the stainless steel support strap and the six holding my hips together. Every shift in the barometer is a world of pain because it's all concentrated right above my gentleman's area

    With how strongly I feel the weather shifting, I ought to be a @%$#ing meteorologist

    I never have figured out this barometer change business. I mean, what happens when you drive up a mountain? Answer: the barometric pressure changes. So why doesn't it hurt then???

    Now that you mention it, I realize that I only very rarely notice my ears pop, even though I travel to over 4,000 ft & back every day. Maybe the pressure equalizes thru my pores...

    It -does- hurt then too but you don't notice as much. I don't 100% know what it is, I just know it hurts like a bastard when the weather changes.
