Heck, I'd help on polishing day. She's amazing and the car is fantastic!

Yesterday I saw a segment of the evening news about a 100 year old MD who was still working. He seemed every bit as sharp as a young man. He was a bit stooped but still walked alright. Not too long ago they showed a man who was 100 and about to head to Europe for an octogenarian tennis tournament. Always gives me hope when I see that sort of story.

I'll bet that lady would be interesting to talk to. Thanks for the post.

She reminds me a lot of my grandmother, what a cool lady.

The best line though, "Have you lived here all your life?"

"Not yet!"

She's cool, but is she Cleve Curtiss cool?

From now on, she will be referred to as "THE MOST INTERESTING WOMAN IN THE WORLD."

"I love the revving of the engine. It's very exhilarating."

Rock on, Ms. Dunning! Here she is in 1943..

She reminds me of my late great grandmother who passed away at 91. She had been forced to give up driving at 90 by my grandmother and great aunts.. but it didn't slow her down much. (just made it longer to get anywhere)

Sadly, I wanted my Grandfather's old Caddy... but my one cousin ( who kills his cars every 6 months to a year) needed a car and got it for free. You can guess how long it survived in his care.
