    My dad is getting ready to travel to see me in Dallas, TX< from Seattle, WA. We insisted my brother drive with him. Dad first entered Galveston, Tx when he was young and was brought to the US by missionaries from the Phillipines. He arrived in, um, early 1920's, served 36 years in the Navy and every morning fixes breakfast, cleans house, drives his friends if they can no longer drive and visits with friends. He was ready to jump in the car and drive half way across the US. His age? 103. I should live so long and be so active, he wears me out! And I don't have his genes, I'm the step daughter. Everytime I see an active older person it heartens me.

    Unbelievable! She doesn't look over 70! How wonderful to be that age, physically fit, and mentally aware!

    That was so cool! I never would have believed she was a day over 80!

    That is a neat story. Thank-you for sharing. I hope I'm still driving even at 80. I'm 68 right now.

    Wish I had my father's 9 passenger Packard we all rode in to visit our Grandmother in Holland, MI. Michigan has great open roads that make driving a joy. We used a touring blanket in the back seat in the winter to keep our legs warm!

    Wow, beautiful car and beautiful lady! She certainly doesn't look 101 and sharp as a tack. I wonder how she does it.

    She is amazing! I posted her video on our model T clubs page.
    I have always been an Annie Oakley fan but this lady wins with me.

    I drive a 1923 Ford Roadster.
    I know what she is saying when people see "her" in the car.
    The guys aren't the only ones who love cars!!

    81 year old car and 101 yr old lady

    Hi!
    My car and I are no where near your ages, but at 82 I am hoping to drive my Chrysler Sebring convertible as long as she drove her car. I love those " top down" days. If the weather is cold, I turn on the heat full force and if the weather is blistering hot, I turn on the air conditioning to keep the top down.

    OMG, a blast from my past. This amazing lady is a neighbor of my sister. She is so generous, helped fund the local library, historical museum and many other things in my hometown. My family shopped at her drygoods store, "Dunning's", it had a complete selection of all things needed to sew for the family. Was exciting to see the beautiful streets of Plymouth again.
