I've known a lot of "older" people who are in to sporty 2 door cars.
Over my many years, I have known older folks that drove 280ZX Turbo, 300ZX Turbo, 300ZX Twin Turbo.
I've also known quite a few who drove Preludes, that seems to be another favorite of discerning older drivers (well, back then!)
I well remember a couple who had a 1995 Prelude VTEC, they'd dress nice and the fella would wear driving gloves. They were in their mid-80's.

If you think you're old, then you're old. I'll never be old!

People who feel old, will conform to the "old-person sports car" stereotype and buy Corvettes and Mustangs. Others who do not care about how society classifies age-appropriate cars, will drive what excites them and makes them happy.

Not quite right. People who buy Corvette's wanted them as a kid. When they get older some can afford them so they buy them. My wife is one of those. The only issues is when I drive it I am not the norm. LMAO, I drive the hell out of it.

LMAO, I am still trying to become a professional racecar driver when I grow up and I am looking 61 right in the face. My 2010 Nismo has been transformed into a full blown track and will have over 700whp. Hell there was a 72 year old guy that drove in the Rolex 24 he at Daytona. I want to be like him....rich! And enough money to do what he did.

I rally enjoyed the 370z.
You're 52 years old. Take some advice from a 29 year old: "Your money your rules".

Edit: LOL. . . 11 year old topic. Now I'M feeling old. At 18 I was partying, chasing girls, doing uni applications and determining what acne products are the best.
