    My apologies Anker - I was thinking of a few others on this forum who had issues getting in and out of his Caterham plus some others who have sold well before your age. Not all are as fit, flexible, hale and hearty as you at your age. All credit to you for keeping yourself in good shape to continue pursuing this hobby.

    I'm 73 and I have had a se7en continuously since age 60. I am still hopping in and out of my 7- which has a full cage that I have to climb up over to get in and out. In all honesty, I am in better shape than my se7en!

    I am lucky tho, as Croc is right, for many of us, age related back, hip, and knee problems can become barriers to ingress/egress into the seven. All is not lost tho: witness Skip's fabled "butt-extractor" solution!

    Agreed age is not the biggest obstacle getting in and out of the car,

    But the flatulence as I climb in or out kinda ruins the cool bloke with a cool car look when picking up chicks from the retirement home.

    Some times you need some extra thrust to achieve lift off
