1930 Packard has 101-year-old driver!
Margaret Dunning of Plymouth, Michigan, was born in 1910 and quickly developed a passion for automobiles. In fact, by the age of 10 she was driving her family's car around the property, which happened to be just minutes away from where the legendary Henry Ford used to live.
Her father died when she was 12, so she inherited his Model T Ford. ''If you had just a little knowledge and some baling wire and bob pins, you could keep the thing going,'' she says. ''It was the little car that made America.''
Dunning has acquired a number of classic cars over the years and still owns a 1931 Ford Model A, a 1966 Cadillac DeVille, a 1975 Cadillac Eldorado convertible, and a 2003 DeVille that serves as an everyday car. However, her most prized possession is a 1930 Packard 740 roadster, which she has owned since 1949.
As for the old Model T, the battered steering wheel now acts as her garage doorstop!
