Come come. There's not that much difference between 47 and 55. Surely you are not feeling your age that much. After all Eighty is the new Seventy so you have a quarter of a century to go before you are old.
I agree though that an eight year old car is not new, but it is not old. However back in 1981, when, I assume you learnt to drive, cars did not last as long as they do today and eight would have been considered getting on to banger stage but today my eight year old Giulietta that I bought, ex demonstrator with 2,300 miles, has just passed 88,000 miles and is going strong having had a multiair transplant and a new a/c condenser as the only major items of none routine maintenance work and it seems as if it could go on for at least the same again.
Procrastination is the thief of time
