When you add the age of the Honda civic ( 1989) with my friend Frederick’s age (1928) you get 118.

Still going strong, as the saying goes. I am not too good in mathematics, but if Fred was born in 1928, he must be around 94 years old by now. And if his Honda Civic was made in 1989, that car will be 33 years old now. 94 + 33 would add up to 127, if I am correct. 

Be that as it may, I wish that their common journey through life continues happily as long as possible.

Hi Andy. Thank you for the mathematical solution. I made a mistake. Fred's age is 94 but the Honda is year: 1998 I must be getting old!

Hi Andy. Fred and his car make one. I asked him if he had to pass a test with the licence bureau. He answers: « usually i have to. But they have not contacted me for 3 years. I must have fallen off the shelf». And he keeps that car in shape as much as he does his best to keep his body in shape. And you should see his reaction when a woman walks by him. A «Ah. Las mujeres!» he sais.

Both the Honda and Fred are going strong.

Fred came to visit me dressed up in his Sunday best.

Long life to both of them!

This is intriguing - as always. Finally I "consulted" your website  and especially loved the folder https://www.valiquet.com/women-workers.html

Que vous continuiez votre travaille ou bien ouvrage

Hans, thank you for your comment and for taking time to look at my web site that I MUST UPDATE. I retired as a commercial-advertising photographer and returned to my first passion: that is to take photos for my own satisfaction, no clients.

My first thought as well.

He does enjoy life and he is an inspiration. Here is another number: him and I have been friends for more than 50 years.

Friendships that long are very rare. I can probably count the number of friends I've had that long on one hand. He looks like he has a great attitude.
