I knwo this is a touchy subject, but what is the age gap do we have with this locable TC.
i been on here since i was 15 or 16, im now 19.
i hear a lot of poeple saying "once i get out of college" or "im still in college"
well im 19, class of 2002, but work full tiem and goign to be starting night school ( Ford ASSET program at my high school, college course)
so i have a feelign there is more of the younger crowd and soem of the "middle age" and soem, of the guys revisiting there youth (just kidding) but im wondering what si thew age gap?

I am 32 (not middle-aged, but not very mature either I am told). Done with college/grad school. I bought my 88 because I wanted it when I was 16 (do the math, that is when the 87s came out) and my dad would only let me buy an Escort (in fact it was an 1984 Escort L that ran about 6 days a month). My TC is for weekends and nice days. I drive an Audi daily.

Just turned 28 on Sunday. I've owned a TC since I was 24, just not the same one. (People keep running in to me) I'm in my first year of college. I guess I just wanted to get out and experience the world on my own when I left high school. Now instead of working dead end factory jobs, I'm on my way to becoming an Algebra/Geometry teacher.

Well so far it seems I'm in the middle of the pack at 33 yrs. That does not mean I have grown up yet right.

I will be 34 later this month. I have owned my TC since 1990. I will say that I honestly never get tired of driving it. I had a moment of insantiy last month and considered selling it but came to my senses again. It just needs more power.

I'll be 46 in May. So I guess I'm on the upper end of the gap LOL... But age is relative...my TC keeps me feeling young...even though it's also aged me at times !

Had my TC since 1991. Of course I had no idea what I was buying when I got it...but the styling grabbed me then and has never let go since. When I bought mine there were probably 6 other TC sitting there for sale...
