Out of curiosity I wanted to make a poll of the current age of Dayton or Superbird owners. Current age only, not your age when you purchased your wing-car.
The poll is intended for owners of real cars only, not recreations or clones.
I am not ditching owners of clones or recreations, I am just wanting to keep the poll isolated to legitimate / authentic wing-cars.
If you do not fall in the options of age groups, and you feel comfortable in doing so please post your age as well as any other details you care to share. IE: multiple wing-car owner, age when purchased.
Thanks in advance, Sincerely Vic

Poll doesn’t start a low enough age if your asking how old long time owners were when they first purchased a wing car.

Now if your looking for current ages, there are not many who are currently under 40.

Me, I am wingless. Just a 69 500 for me but still not old enough to be in the poll. Bought first 500 15 years ago now. Was 23 when I bought it.

While hardly a complete sample, out of 19 owners, the median age is 50+ for 95% of the respondents.    A lot of long time owners who bought in before the major price spikes.   The high  average age does not bode well for the future.  Is it because people in the younger group can't afford them, or prefer other cars?

Can't afford them.  There are plenty of younger guys on here, so the hobby is alive and well.

Me, I am wingless. Just a 69 500 for me but still not old enough to be in the poll. Bought first 500 15 years ago now. Was 23 when I bought it.

My intent on this poll is to determine the current age of wing car owners here.

I purposely started the age brackets on the high end as my thoughts were that most owners here are longtime owners and hence, the majority are older than forty. The poll is showing exactly what I thought it would, that most wing car owners are over fifty years old. If you look at the results so far, there are no current owners that are under 45 years of age.

If I were to have set up the poll on what age someone was when they purchased their wing-car I am certain I would have had many owners that were in the 20-24 year old, 25-30 year old, 31-35 year old bracket. It is my believe that the majority of wing-car owners are long time owners hence they are older in age.

I am however going to set up additional polls on how old wing-car owners were at the age of purchase, longevity of ownership as well as multiple wing-car ownership. The last poll I find kind of interesting as a good many wing-car owners are multiple car owners. They are so passionate about wing-cars that when they stumble across another one they just have to have it.

Your response did make me realize a flaw in my poll parameters. I should have made the poll to cover all aero-cars instead of wing-cars. This was a poor oversight on my part, as I believe the 1969 Charger 500 to be just as relevant to the poll results despite not having a nosecone and wing, especially considering their extremely low production figures. Therefore if you and any other owners, would please include the 1969 Dodge Charger 500 in this poll as they are aero-cars and should be included in the results. Thanks

Aero, yes you are correct and part of the reasoning behind this poll which is to determine the current age of owners.
And yes, "The high average age does not bode well for the future" all things considered.

As far as your question, "Is it because people in the younger group can't afford them, or prefer other cars?"
I believe the reality is that the younger generation that likes and collects cars, just prefer other cars that are of their generation. Nothing more or nothing less than that. However I am positive that there are going to always be exceptions and younger collectors that will always cherish and preserve the aero-cars.

Sincerely Vic

Not sure if you could edit a poll but if you can just add Charger 500 and add a 40 and under category or just change the 1st to 44 and under.  Twocents

I have edited the poll to know include the 1969 Charger 500 and an under 40 year old current age of owner.
Unfortunately the option for under 40 years old is now out of sequence and the last option, #6 at the end of the poll.
I don't think it will create may issues if everyone responding reads all of the options through.
I would be surprised to see many under 40 replies, however now those that may be are included in this poll.
Thanks for your input and advice. Sincerely Vic

I'm 39 and hope to buy one in the not to distant future. The recent auction prices don't bode well though for me! Plus the low Canadian dollar pretty much puts me out of the running for now.  shruggy

Since handicap parking spots are usually larger it would be ideal for a wing car.  :- Roll Eyes

I believe the reality is that the younger generation that likes and collects cars, just prefer other cars that are of their generation. Nothing more or nothing less than that.

Seriously guys, that's not it.  Most people, let alone young people can not afford an aero car.  Owner's ages are higher because these are mostly people who have been successful in their careers and have disposable income now OR they bought them long ago before the prices were so high.  If prices were lower, younger people would drive them.

I'm 31.  If I could afford a Daytona I would buy one.  But right now, even R/T's are out of my price range.
