Little old lady from Pasedena....

....or wherever.
This Carrera 4S passed me today, and as I glanced over I saw a little old lady, blue hair, pearls and all, behind the wheel. She could barely see over the dash, but she had a huge grin on her face!

I guess there's no age limit to "Permagrin".
(Couldn't get a pic of her because she was moving too fast)

I saw an older lady 70+ last year driving a 997 Turbo convertible going north to Edmond. Made me jealous of that lady for sure.

All I can say is Go Granny, Go!
That's the way I want to do it. If I end up in a beige Buick sedan complaining about my Lumbago I'll want someone to shoot me!

I grew up in Pasadena and the little old lady next door drove a pale yellow 73 Coupe Deville. I actually made fun of the car. Now if she drove 73 911S I would have been impressed.

There must be different perception of 'FAST' in Oklahoma
She's passing you , you say she's moving to fast
Her spoiler hasn't even deployed???
I hope my Social security checks cover a 911 loan payment

If 911 Cabriolets are for little old ladies, call me Granny and sign me up.
