    Good for her and Packard, two classic Americians carrying on with life as they want too.

    Wow, she LOVES that car - stepping on a rag on the running board to keep it clean? Nice - gotta wonder if she was a pit girl in the 40s.

    she is lucky to be driving at her age. most people dont live that long
    not more than an hour ago there was a wreck just above my house. the woman driver, 83 and the man 86, went down an embankment about 15' and stoped just short of entering a stream
    we used the jaws of life to remove them both

    Fine looking auto, love the red interior. Nice lady too.

    I would think the Dislikes are from folks who will probably not live as long as her. :eek:

    Wonder what that buggy is worth?

    The thrill of driving a classic like that's probably the only thing keeping her going.

    That old gal is priceless. One thing to note, she was well prepared for retirement. Many people do not plan to live to be 100+ but then end up running short of money. She however has her full mind, and active body, and she sems to be fairly wealthy. Good for her. I would peg her as a conservative if I had to guess. I like her.:) Great post Jack.
