Flickr Photo of the Day: Penny and Her 1958 Corvette


Last night I found this wonderful photo and story of an 86 year old Corvette owner named Penny who daily drives a 1958 convertible. The photographer is also a neighbor who said the following about her subject:

“Penny is our 86 year old neighbor and friend. She is the most youthful 86 year old I’ve ever met and she drives a 1958 Corvette in mint condition which she bought new 48 years ago.” “I asked Penny if I could take photos of her with her beloved Corvette. She graciously agreed, and said, “It needs a new paint job, but so do I!” Penny is a lovely woman and a role model of what it can be like to be a senior young-at-heart.”

There are three photos in the Penny series and you can view them here and here. The comments are worth reading as well.
