Bob Lutz is a better man than you!

:eek: Ohhhhh, My achin sholders. ;) I use to beable to do 100 push ups. I would beable to still do that if only I had not had a few misfortunet injurys to my shoulders though the years. I find that swimming is the best exercize to keep an old car guy in good condition. The impact is not so hard on the joints. I sometimes also ride a bicycle as is is easier on the joints than the impact created by running. My Hat is off to him. :cool: Dandy Dave!

Dandy Dave,

Like you, I find swimming to be great exercise. But making the time is hard. Much quicker to go for a run, but my messed up back won't take much of that pounding. I can still do 50 pushups and try to do so every other day or so, but the arthritic neck pinching nerves sometimes puts a stop to that :(.

As an avid excercise supporter, I was amused at the Lutz exhibition .

While the first ten push ups were in true form, the last ten were a bit on the girly side. Still, at 70, the guy is in great condition.


I thought I heard the age of 80 mentioned.... Quick check, he was born on February 12, 1932 so he is 80. Pretty impressive!

The book Bob wrote is pretty interesting especially for the people that worked around him. I have met Bob a few times and he always comes across one of those bigger than life characters. He has a nice collection of cars, jet pilot and someone who is extremely intelligent. I sometimes think that they are not building people like him anymore. My last meeting with him I took a shot at something he said in his speech when it was my turn and he was gracious enough to say I had made a point (about the treatment of terminated dealers by GM).
