Margaret in 1943 in her Red Cross uniform (she drove Red Cross trucks)
A number of years after that she purchased the Packard (1949)
Honestly, she might be the longest licensed person in the US, 89 years. Great read, and I was just kidding about the would hit. She doesn't look 101 though.

As soon as GM shook off the hangover of war-time dreariness and started to dive headlong into an "up" mode, things improved immensely. Cars, like women, sometimes take on a wonderful pizazz and flamboyance once they drop their top and stretch out their sleekness.
The '48 convertibles (as you noted) laid out some nice lines.
One example, below, is the 48 Buick
I would seriously hurt a lot of people on this thread to be 1/2 as cool as she is.
A 101 year-old woman that does her own oil changes? Awesome.
Before I read it, I was thinking she may be the longest licensed driver in the U.S., too. She got her first license about the time my dad was born!

I really don't have anything to add — a great story, a beautiful car, and quite the character, by the sounds of it!

nice little side story about how her friends got her an exact duplicate key created (just in case she lost the only original one she had)
All these years Ms. Dunning has kept her Packard’s original key with its elaborate crest. For her recent birthday, some friends duplicated the prized key.
“I was thrilled to death to have another one,” she said. “If I had ever lost the one I had, the locksmith would be out here for a week, and I still would not have that crest,” she said.
