49 for me, 20 for my son

Ditto this. I own two...both 90s. My son has been driving my silver car winter and summer since he was 17. I just bought an eBay driftwood. The jury is still out on how much I'll drive it. Seems sound, but the interior shows more wear than I was hoping for.

Don't order a black and tan in Dublin.

BTW this thread just shows that Reattas are good for your health.

I'll turn 38 9/2. I remember when I saw my first Reatta. I had just turned 17 and I realy really wanted one ... then I saw how much they were.

My girlfriends Dad was going to buy one and he ended up trading in his 85 Riviera for an 89 Riviera instead ... I was so upset. I thought for sure he was going to come home with my dream car and I would at least get to sit in it.

Then the car seemed to just go away. It wasn't until I met a guy who owns a dealership and collects Reattas that I offered to buy one of them from him 3 years ago ... paid way too much for way to little, but I was smitten and could not be talked out of it.

And here I am today trying to figure this SH$% out !:D

Wouldn't have it any other way. Part of the fun is having what nobody else has.

I'll be 35 next week. I've been taking care of this '89 since my mother bought it in 1990. My mother gave it to my wife a few years back, and now my wife and I just recently switched cars. So, after 19 years, I finally get to drive this car! Quite fun.

51, A loyal Buick owner, I bought this one of a guys lawn only because the underside was so clean and was looking for something to replace a sold corvette. It doesn't have HP of the vette (that you can't use on the road anyway) but it blows it away in several other areas.

Just joined the forum. You have me beat by a few years. I bought my first, a 91 coupe, last September at 75 years old. Nice to be a junior at something.

I was 73 when this thread started, had a red 89 coupe, a white 91 coupe and a white 90 ragtop. None were my 1 st. Now only have the 90 ragtop.

Will be 79 the 23 rd., maybe oldest here?

I bought mine at 19 off a used car dealer who had it rotting on his lot for 10 years. I admired that car from the time I was about 13. I'm turning 22 next week and have many happy miles on my 90 coupe. Planning to buy a vert down the road, preferably an 88 or 89.

Whew, smells like brain fart in here. I guess I forgot that my dream car does not, in fact, exist. The two things I don't like about mine are the lack of touchscreen and the hardtop. Oh well. They really won't give you it all on one plate. Justification for multiple Reattas?

Bingo!

I live in the best of two world's......drive the '89 coupe with touch screen and hardtop daily.......drive the '91 vert on sunny, warm days with the top down. Life is so good!!

I bought my first garnet red '90 coupe when I was 48, 13 years ago. I bought my second Reatta, a Maui blue, 90 sunroof coupe 6 years later. I bought Marilyn, my white '90 roadster 2 years ago when I was 59. She will probably be my last one.

Bought my 1st Reatta in 1990 it was an 89 dark gray with gray interior, sunroof and 16way seat. I was fresh outta Autobody school and bought it with front end damage and 7k miles took it all apart and painted it black drove it a few years and then sold it to a college buddy. 25 years later decided I needed another one again so bought a 89 sunroof 16way black with gray interior now tore it all apart and restoring it so found a 91 black vert with 50k miles awesome cars! I'm now 44 yrs old
