Default New Old Guy

Former BMW 318, 325, 540 and Z3 owner now a '99 M3 Convertible owner. By the new old man description in the title I am now 85YO. After heart surgery 4 years ago I sold my 2000 Z3, (worried I could do a manual anymore) to a son and bought a couple (not at the same time) of S Type Jaguars. Sold them and my 2001 Toyota Tacoma was my sole vehicle. Saw the M3 in a classified ad and loved it. Another son went and bought it and gave it to me for my 85th birthday. Its got warts but we're working thru them. Main was the driver's seat was shambles but that has been resolved.
I was a member of Benz World and Z3 Forums which at the time was life and MONEY savers for me. And also Trailer Sailor Forum.
I retired from the US Army in 1974 after serving 21 years. Married to my high school sweetheart for 61 years and have 3 boys and one girl and 3 grandsons.
Born and raised in Alabama, lived in many places in the US and overseas and now live in the Florida panhandle
