95 year old Pinto driver
« on: June 24, 2015, 06:46:01 AM »
Yesterday I was out working and spotted this blue 74 trunk model. No one was around so I put my card under the windshield wipers. He called me a few hours later. He says he uses the car to run errands and go to the doctor. He is 95 years old!

He acquired it quite a while ago. It had 17k on it. He got the car for mowing a lawn twice! It now has 31k on it.

Sharp looking '74!  People who thrive well into their sunset years amaze me.  There's a lady in our church family who turned 95 back in April.  She still drives (a red 2015 Ford Fusion) and does pretty much whatever she wants to do. She could easily pass for 70 any day!
