Probably what the guy behind her is thinking!
Yes. She's hoping to go back to the future as well.
Not to be picky, but flivvers were Model T Fords. That is a Model A.

It has been my experience that he is always that way. I'm with you, you made a nice post correcting a detail and it did not require that sort of response.
@31Dodger - I think @C. John Stutzer was a little bit joking. Don't take everything too serious.
My thoughts exactly. But that would make her over 80 now.
edit: Just found that image on the photographer's site. It is her, taken in 1978. Looking closer, the gas pump is not 50s era.
