    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!

    How wonderful to be that 'together' in body and mind at her age - I'm already falling to bits! The car looks immaculate.

    What the article doesn't say about her is that she loves to teach kids about her old cars and will answer all of their questions. She is a nice woman who tells amazing stories and her character is beyond description. My grandparents knew her and I saw her several times around town. Thanks for posting it.
