Never too late, even at 44.

Hello everyone. I'm 44 yrs old and originally from NY(buses, trains and taxis) and now live in Houston, Texas for last 9 yrs. I'm 44 yrs old and have never possessed a driver's license. My wife and sons(23&25) have licenses but I've never had the desire to have a license....UNTIL NOW. Wife and I own a 2007 Pontiac G6 and oldest son who lives with us owns a 2008 Dodge Charger. In NY I had friends and girlfriends who were my "chauffeur" and in Houston my wife is the "driver" and i car pool with my son.

Recently I've been getting the itch to get my license and drive. My wife wants a truck and i'm happy to drive the G6. Am I strange? Will it be strange/funny to stand in line with teenagers to get my license? lol ! I cannot think of any car that I would prefer to call my "first car" than the G6. I feel at ease when i'm in the G6 over any other car. So my Pontiac friends, wish me luck and i'll keep you updayed in my pursuit of my license at age 44. When you see someone with a BIG smile driving down I45 in houston, Texas in a 07 Pontiac G6...it'll be me.

ALRIGHT!!!!!!!!!
At the DMV there will be plenty folks of all ages renewing and getting new like yourself. Are you strange for wanting to keep the G6?? No, not at all in my book; Then again, my wife says my book has some torn pages.



BTW, when is your birthday? I just hit 44 in June. I find at 44 I forget more than usual, ahh?? what was I talking about?? Where's my Pinto?

I'll be 45 in december. My wife just turned 44 in april. I'm excited about getting my license, feel like a 16 yr old. I just wonder why I'm so excited now and not 1o, 15, 20 yrs ago.

I'm listening to "Zebra" right now, if your from NY you may have heard of them being 44. The Ipod thing, you're better off getting a late model monsoon system. They come AUX ready.

Zebra??? I remember being part of my Long Island college radio station and we hired a group to perform on campus back in 1983-85. Wonder if they are the same.

Actually I should amend my "16-year-old" listening list - was at work and tried to think of some groups quickly


How about Lamb Of God & Five Finger Death Punch

Five Finger Death Punch is ok by me but after listening to Lamb Of God I felt like head butting my wife then doing a stage dive from the diningroom table.
Back then I was into Judas Priest and Motley Crue, in that rock range. Some Deo and Iron Maiden too. Yup, I was a stoner! Then I had to grow up, damit!

I did a Cruise last year there out of Galveston. Two weeks before Ike hit and
flooded the place. The garage we parked at for our cruise, 2 weeks later was under 8 foot of water.

Everyone who drove to the cruise terminals for that week lost their cars.
man its hard to believe....

You going Carnival 5 day??
