Age of members

Wesley55 asked, in a thread about Ebay wording, Here's another question, HATE TO BE A DOWNER, but since Alfa's aren't sold in the USA anymore, what is the average age of the members of this board???? I'll admit I'm 50 now. Interesting question, so I thought I'd start a new thread. I'm 61, and recently bought my 3rd Alfa after an interval of 25 years.

This seems appropriate material for a survey/poll. There is ample justification for limiting the response to one answer per respondent on each of questions like:

What is your age
How many Alfas do you now have
How many times have you purchased an Alfa (including re-purchases for the inconstant)
How many Alfas have you ridden into the ground
How many Alfas have been shot out from under you by other drivers/insurancecompanies

Is there an alfabb mechanism for such polls?

By the way, I am 49, purchased my first Alfa at 45, have purchased 4 and still have them (viel Kinder), and am planning purchase of a 5th. None have been destroyed, sold (yet), or parted out by me or for me.

What is your age - 49
How many Alfas do you now have - 4
How many times have you purchased an Alfa (including re-purchases for the inconstant) - 4
How many Alfas have you ridden into the ground - 0
How many Alfas have been shot out from under you by other drivers/insurancecompanies - 0

What _I_ meant by "ridden into the ground" was driving it and wearing it out, whether by rust or inattention, to the point that it was financially unsuitable for repair/refurbishment and was either junked or parted out. But that's only what _I_ meant when I posed the question above.
