    101 yrs old, still driving, and to quote: "...I still love the revving of the engine."

    I'm impressed

    No, and I sure wouldn't bet against her in an arm wrestling contest, ever steer an old Packard?

    That is very cool.
     
  9. You see her biceps as she was turning the steering wheel? She has great tone for 101! Very nice. I want to adopt her as my grandma. How many cool 101-year-olds do you see wrenching and driving an 80-year-old Packard?

    I once asked a senior his formula to age so gracefully, and he said "choose your parents very wisely."

    I thought you'd like seeing her, maybe I should have used a different title that would have attracted more viewers.

    Reminds me of my grandma. She didnt drive a old car, but was quite the quick driver. And just as sharp till the day she passed, loved life just as much.

    What an "on to it" woman for her age, and great roadster.

    This lady is awesome! If she lived in my area I think I would be her best friend. Hopefully I am still building and driving when I am 101.

    I love that she was encouraging others to fix up old cars too. Thats great!
     
  27. Bob, very cool. thanks for posting.
     
  28. awesome lady. my nanna's only 70 and she's not that "with it", plus if she was driving an old car like that it'd be a crumpled mess
