101 Year Old driver buys 400 Horsepower Camaro

truth is stranger than fiction...

A 101 year old driver bought a 400 HorsePower "Transformers" edition canary-yellow Camaro.

I'll bet he gets the girl too.

Maybe the 'mid life' crisis we all go through?

Seriously though....not long ago I saw a guy that looked to be in his 70s in a 500 hp ZO-6. Seemed to me like a pretty spooky combination.

There are some 70 yo who can drive better than most 20 and 30 somethings...



This is what Paul Newman was driving at the age of 80...

This guy was just minutes away from doing his first launch at a 1/4 mile drag strip.....on street tires. Wish I had been close enough to see how he handled it. Oh well, at least he had sense enough to take it to the track.
