Default Oldest and Youngest owner/drivers

As you can see, I am new to this forum and was wondering what the demographics are:

Who is the oldest F-Type owner/driver and who is the youngest?

To clarify, I mean someone who drives his/her car regularly, not just keeps it in a collection.

I'm likely far from the youngest but I bought my F-Type R in July and am 29.

We're all just kids, born in at least 6 different decades.

I think a wise old man said as kids get older their toys just get more expensive ;-)

There's an older thread here titled 'What are your demographics?', as I recall.

But I'm old (52), so my memory may be failing...

Default My S Type, the Queen of All.

I acquired my S Type after a long wait in February this year.
A 3.0 V6 beauty.
I'm really impressed with her every and each time I'm seated.
I had BMWs , Toyotas, Nissans, Renualt 2.5 GTS and many more. I used a Daewoo Leganza prior to meeting with my Present Lady.
I enjoy every moment with her.

I feel like this car specifically will have a large demographic, age wise. A brand with a historically older population of drivers who's trying to attract the young crowd with this car.

That said I purchased at 25, now 27.

F-type was my 35th birthday gift to myself. I splurged a bit by buying new, but it was well-worth it.

Apart from buying new, I have zero complaints.

From the 23 year old who works at JLR and brought my car to me from around back after having it serviced: "What did you do to get one of these cars?"

I'm 45. And it took a long time to get here.
