She is an amazing person and what a magnificent car. That thing would be a challenge to drive with armstrong steering and mechanical brakes.

What a gal!  It is hard to believe she is 101 - she acts MUCH younger.  A real example for the rest of us.

Thanks for posting.

I loved how she stepped on the towel to enter the car. :)
I do what the little voices in my wife's head tell me to do.

I do the same thing with my model T because I have gravel outside the shop and sometimes can feel a small piece of gravel in the tread of my shoes.  Sorta became a habbit in fear of possibly scratching the running board when stepping on it.

It did not appear she had gravel in her yard though..
