Grannys, Guns, and Apple Pie! I had the fortune of knowing a retired Army colonel and his wife when I was in college (friends of my roommate). His wife was a lot like the lady in the video - had a '63 Impala that was "her" car. He had a '68 Chevy pickup and they had an '80's Caravan but she wouldn't drive it. After he passed away some years ago, she sold the minivan and started driving the Impala with 70,000 original miles. 2-door, 327, PowerGlide, factory air, P/S, and mint shape. She was in her 70's at the time and sharp as a tack. It's been a few years since I've heard from her, she has to be pushing 90.
The cars are irrelevant here - even though I fondly remember spending Sunday afternoons with them giving the car a wash and wax and taking it for a spin, marveling at how lousy it handled with bias tires, drum brakes, and 42 turns lock-to-lock and zero road feel steering.
These type of people are rare, REALLY rare, created from another time when America was very different - when values mattered along with hard work, honesty, treating people with respect, taking ownership of your actions (and responsibility), and we didn't hesitate to defend our country with force when threatened. This is how America was built, and sadly we are forgetting that today.
Wonder what she thinks of Obama?
