I guess you've all seen the video with the extraordinary 102 year old lady Margaret Dunning and her 1930 Packard Roadster.

Well, time flies and now she's gone at 104 :-(
Though she kept the speed up all the way and last friday at dinner she said her bucket list was complete after visiting Jay Leno's collection in California.

She died sunday afternoon after a fall, still visiting California participating in the ELK Charity challenge classic car rally.

She had some Ford and Model T connections as can be read here:

I remember that video a couple of years ago. What a neat, spunky ol' gal! Beautiful car, beautiful lady. She will no doubt be sorely missed by all. Thanks for the posting Roger.

I have seen articles and videos about this amazing person several times over the past fifteen years.
Thank you for the update.
My condolences to her family and close friends.
