Being the legal speed limit in most places (not on the interstate--55), I don't feel too bad. Even when my former best man continually challenges me to a drag race (he has a Pontiac Gran Prix GTP with a pushrod engine and absolutely no handling that any of us would consider fulfilling). He also says mine is a girl's color (he prefers black--typical of aging males unsure of their masculinity ) with only a four-banger. Gawd, I love America. Only country where old age is not respected by aged Americans...larchmont said:Thanks, OWK -- very, very interesting data.
I don't think anybody had any REAL idea about these things before.
Age ranges and gender ratios particularly interesting.
Age: I see I'm not as much off the curve as I thought!
Gender: There had been a little controversy about that. Most projections that we saw from Honda/Acura were estimating 60:40 male, and these data are in line with that. But some people were speculating the opposite, or even more of a landslide in that other direction, including one notorious review from about a year ago that pissed off females and males alike.
