    Most classic car owners are accustomed to the unusual looks other motorists cast toward their relics on the road. But when Margaret Dunning is behind the wheel of her 1930 Packard 740 Roadster, she draws more attention than her vehicle. Dunning, age 102, may be one of a small handful of classic-car drivers who can lay claim to the fact they're older than their vehicles.

    The story about Margaret Dunning and her collection (usually the '29 Packard) pops up once a year, usually around her birthday time. It's a few months late this year. :)
    I first read an article about her collection back in 2000 when she turned 90.

    She just keeps going and going. I just hope I'm half as spry as she is when/if I get that old!!!
