I am going to be difficult when my kids contact the doctor to withhold a medical.

"Yes your honour I am 90 and don't have a licence. I will note you have taken my licence away for a further 12 months for driving without a licence"

We had a bloke 90 on the last military vehicle trip to Alice Springs. He brought his brand new civilian million horsepower turbo Jeep and just for the hell of it did a bunch of circle work out the back of an industrial area. What are they going to do?

I doubt there is any way they can stop you owning a car just officially driving it. Having said that blind and Alzheimic might be a worry to others on the road and I might find the little buggers have hidden the rotor buttons.

All this stuff might be true as a fella I know of, havent seen him for around 30 years had his truck license cancelled at age 90, had a feature about him in the home town news paper

Still driving semis everyday at 90 is a good effort, think he is 93 now, local rag had a right up about him a few weeks ago

Sadly we are all gunna be old and unwanted soon enough

OK if you are picky Dave they will hide the electric doohickey or maybe wheel clamp the car. No that won't work as my battery powered angle grinder works a treat.

Lang was that 90 year old hoon called John? His million horsepower jeep all covered in a military style wrap? A few years ago, when he lost his driver's licence for another year, he was on the cover of the Melboring newspaper The Herald Sun with the caption "Victoria's oldest Hoon." I know him well. He said he had the largest possible engine (I think he said 5.7 litres) put into the jeep from new. He also told me how much the vinyl wrap cost. He says "I have the money, so why not."
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!
