OMG Im getting old

86 TR

Work In Progress
I can't believe my 86 Buick is 28 years old already! Its almost scary. Wow.

Im only 37 but time goes so quickly.

I can remember which feels just like yesterday that i was running my 87 GN at the track. Talking with all the other buick owners, asking what they did to their cars. Trying to get mine to run the best I could back in the day.

I owned my first TR back in 1995. I was 19 years old. A 87 GN, which I still should have kept to this day. I still see the car from time to time.

I bought my current Buick back in 03. I guess Im just having a hard time dealing with the way time passes. A friend of mine has owned his 86 T-type since 1989 which we just got on the road this last year.

Guess you can say im stuck in the Eighties!

I know I heard a song the other day about being stuck in the 80's.

In my mind the g-body chassis is timeless.

Mid-life chrisis? Not in the midlife yet lol.

I turn 50 in 1 month and you want to think you're old? Nothing personal but kiss my ass.:finger: I started with an NA Buick V6 and ran it in SCCA street modified or super street modified. We're talking old school carbed with ported heads, 1 & 5/8" primary KB headers, and a 5 speed. On and off the street. I spanked quite a few moosetanks and can'tmaroes in the early/mid 80's and had a lot of fun. I graduated just before the SFI HA cars came out and was legal drinking age when the IC cars came out. There are more than a few that got in before I did but most of us still think you need your diapers changed before you get to where we are.:ROFLMAO:
I'm an original owner, and it does go by fast. Like Ferris Beuler said, Sometimes you must stop and live life or it passes you by, or something like that.
I am 51. I remember looking at them when they were new and high tech. Sometimes I feel like I am still 19. Other times I feel like a geezer. Times does fly.
Ordered a new GN in 1987 And my oldest turned 25 today will be 48 in march Time goes by to quick wish I knew then what I know now And I am still a dumb ass because I keep getting this cars :rage:
I always figure I wouldn't know much if I didn't tear stuff up and have to fix it.

I was 27 when when I bought a 1986 GN still in the wrapper from Peter Epstien Buick in Palm Springs, CA. (long since stolen)

Yeah, that makes me turning 55 in July of this year and "officially" a senior citizen.

I say phooey to you young whipper-snappers!!!!!

It's almost 4PM, I have to go at the IHOP for dinner now.........;)

I knew old age was creeping up on me but it hit home a day or so ago when I was flipping channels and came across a tribute band covering the Beastie Boys. I bought my first Turbo Buick in 1990 , it doesn't seem that long ago. :rolleyes: I still have a Buick in the garage and listen to 80's music. I'm just stuck in a rutt I suppose. :D

hello people; Time waits for no one so all we can do is deal with it. I feel it but I'm not letting it bring me down. I lost a neighbor this past weekend he was 94 and now this morning I heard Pete Seager died at about the same age but was still performing just a few years ago. How about Paul Mcartney and Ringo on the Grammies. I think Paul is in the 70's and I remember seeing the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show when I was a kid. Funny I really don't feel my age till I look in the mirror.
go with the flow and hopefully we stay healthy

I wonder who the youngest on the board is? I'm 21 and I bought my TR when I was 18.
