    Midland Michigan Otis Wilson Memorial classic car show, Northwood University. Well classics are not all that showed up at the show. A dealer brought a 2018 Chevy Corvette to the show and got a plaque same as we did. There was also a 2002 Ford Mustang there and recived a Plaque, hey those college boy judges could resist that batty eyed blond. In the questionare we were asked to fill out I stated when people who put a lot of love, sweat and money into a old classic car leave the show because trophys and plaques are given to off the deal lot cars they will stop coming.

    Yes she was a sweet grandma, had some funny ideas also. 50,000miles and she was afraid the car was to old and would break down at any time and would not even ride in when her hubby drove.

    So that is whay for a Michigan car where they salt the roads all winter and spring long it didn't have even one rust hole.

    Also since the wife and I are grand parents it is still a grandma and grandpa car not sure about the sweet part how ever.

    :D Al

    I suppose what is an old people car is subjective to generation. I was in diapers in 84.
