Hi guys, hopeing you all can help with some demographic studies, I'm trying to gain info on the average age of todays GTR and XU1 owners, from what I've been able to gather so far from those I've spoken to at car shows etc its looking like those between 45 and 50 are the most represented but I would like to hear from a larger cohort, if you could spare a moment please let me know , you don't need to give your specific age if you don't wish but just a range say 35 to 40 etc. Also if you recently acquired your car what age would you say the seller was if possible, thanks in advance , Iain

Can I ask why you are assembling the info?....just curious,.... or timing the market?...if the later, I sometimes ponder similarly.

If you are doing a PHD on Torana owners, well that's great news!..would be interesting to see the results.

 

To answer your question - 57, and previous owner 62 ( from memory)

Like to say timing the market for another purchase but no, just a uni project on population studies but hey may as well make it interesting eh, thanks for the replies so far,

Bought the XU1 when I was 33 I'm now 46. At a guess, I reckon the seller was late 30s.

 

It was my dream car from when I was 16.

 

Cheers,

 

Liz
