101 Year Old Lady Hoons a Packard

I am afraid of getting old. With age come weakness, sickness, and physical inabilities. Some lose their minds too. The availability of social security is in question, pension plans are nonexistent, and the value of my 401K… I don’t even want to look. I am 35 and I am afraid of the future. And then I watch a video like this and it gives me hope.

101, that’s how old Barbra Gunning is. At that age she is still driving, and not just any car but a 1930 Packard with a straight-eight. Not only that, Barbra says she can change the oil and the spark plugs too! In the end though, she really enjoys driving her classic and encourages others to do the same. I sure hope to live to be her age and have that same passion. Excuse me while I pop a multivitamin and go to the gym.

Also, this video, which appears to be produced by someone at the New York Times, is titled “Two Classics, One Car“. Really.

Really New York Times? Really Mr. Video-maker? You just had to be funny and make that reference? Really? You really couldn’t come up with anything more original or appropriate? You Disgust me.
