81 Year Old Packard


Recommended Posts

I know people are living longer now but I am totally amazed that a Decagenarian is able to drive any car let alone a completely manual 1930 Packard. She must have the new title of the longest continuously owned car. I wonder if she had any of those other cars longer.

I know Margaret and she is just an amazing person, car lover, philanthropist, more.

The museum she helped create had a wonderful 100th birthday for her last year with members from several clubs in attendance, hundreds of friends and admirers. Margaret still currently owns vintage Cadillacs and a Ford pickup. Two cars she donated are on display at the Gilmore Car Museum near Kalamazoo MI.

From a conversation I learned Margaret joined the Cadillac LaSalle Club in 1959, the year after it was founded.

Yes, she does still drive, in fact, has been seen cruising Woodward during the Dream Cruise. I'd have to say, Margaret doesn't look or act a day older than 75.

She has some great Henry Ford stories. HF was a friend of her parents.
