Post 101 yr old lady driving and 81 yr old Packard car

This is AMAZING -- she doesn't look or act a day over 81 herself!

An amazing lady, 101 years old driving an 81 year old car; she changes
the oil and spark plugs herself! This is priceless.

Note at the very end of the video clip when she steps on a small red towel
as she gets in the car; the towel is there so she won't dirty the
running board - once in the car she picks up the towel and puts it
in the car so she can use it when she gets out.

What a pistol she is!
